Unstabled threat at royal wedding?



So Blog Guy, I don’t understand why you’re devoting so much time to that wedding with Kate Middleton and that guy she’s marrying. It doesn’t seem like your kind of thing.

BRITAIN/It wasn’t, but now it is. Let’s just say maybe I think it’s going to be more eventful than some folks expect.

Okay Blog Guy, you can’t stop there. If you have information, share it. It’s not like anybody else is going to read it here.

Well, keep it to yourself. As you probably know, the Household Cavalry is going to escort the royals on their wedding day, so just for fun I enlarged portions of this red sign at their barracks.

And don’t pick your nose at the wedding!



Good news. We have another one of those etiquette columns that appear to be aimed at folks who were raised by Goths. And not even by especially smart Goths, judging from the level of the advice.

BRITAIN-ROYAL/Using the upcoming wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton as a sly way into the subject, we tell readers what they need to know if they are invited to a wedding. It’s pretty complicated.

The Clampetts are here, Your Majesty…



It turns out when Kate Middleton marries Britain’s Prince William in a couple of weeks, her family is going to stay someplace called the Goring Hotel while they are in London. It may be part of the Econo Lodge chain, but I could be wrong.

BRITAIN/These photos above and below show where William’s family lives, and on the right you can see the itty-bitty place where the Middletons will be.

A fresh supply of Kate hits the streets…



Blog Guy, it’s me. One of the junkies you got hooked on Prince William’s fiancée, Kate Middleton.

Life can be a royal pane?



Blog Guy, I know you must have a lot of inside information about the upcoming royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton. The security around them must be incredible. Where could they possibly be finding privacy? Do you know?

Earn big money with a familiar face?



Blog Guy, I notice you wrote about a Joe DiMaggio lookalike yesterday.

The lookalike game intrigues me. Can you provide some details, so I can see if I might want to pursue a career at that?

Me? Nobody yet, but I figured I’d take some courses or something.

Well, I think it helps if nature gives you a head start.

Like see, the people in these photos here look like Prince William and his fiancée, Kate Middleton, so they’re in for a great ride, eating free fried chicken at places that comp meals for members of the royal family.

Dispensing with Kate Middleton

Blog Guy, now that Prince William’s royal wedding is less than a month away, what’s the strangest souvenir you’ve seen so far?

AUSTRIA/That would be this set of PEZ dispensers, one of which features the prince. The candy comes out where it usually does, I guess.

A yarn about a close-knit family?



Blog Guy, I have some questions about that upcoming royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton. Can you help?
