News, but not the serious kind

The stage is comin’ with a duchess on it!


Crap, Willy, what now? What is this thing taking us into town?

It’s a stagecoach, Duchess! Great, huh?  Conestoga wagon, prairie schooner, buckboard…

Shut up. They don’t have big limousines in Calgary?

Not so much, I guess.

Sigh. What’s on our schedule for day number 840 in Canada?

Uh, let’s see. Hey, it looks like we’re taking part in some kind of a Village People retrospective…

Jeez Louise, Willy! I thought it was gonna be FUN being the Queen!

I’ve told you, you’re not the Queen, sweetheart.

Willy, why is that man holding out that white hat?

Um, I think that’s in case you’re going to lose your lunch after the bumpy stagecoach ride…

Well, they’re very thoughtful here, I’ll say that for them…
