Pears and Kiwifruits
Can you believe the whoopla that everyone is making out of the Danish royals??
I wasn't even going to mention them, but jeepers, it's like they are...royalty or something..
Ok, I appreciate the whole, "Small town girl makes good" thing. And yeah, becoming a princess is every little girls dream, but in the end, they are royalty, from a country that we don't have any affiliation with.
Warren from the Daily Telegraph had a clever cartoon in yesterdays paper, depicting the Australian flag with the danish flag replacing the union jack, and a picture of the Queen looking sad and saying, "Bugger".
Bugger indeed. As republican as I am, I would still prefer the 'real' royalty of Australia than the Danish equivalent.
I like to think of the Danish couple as Pears. Solid. Rounded with a weird sort of taste, whilst the Pommy royatly are Kiwifruits, with the skin on. If you wanna eat that skin you'll pull a face, and then when you get through it you find all these seeds and weird coloured bit that you had no idea were there when you picked it up.
Sure, Prince Charles is a useless twat, his sons are spoilt brats, the Queen is fading fast, and not to mention to rest of them. But they are who they are, and at the very least they are entertaining.
The Danish royal couple? I mean, gees, SBS even replayed their boring arse wedding on TV the other night. Talk about over-kill.
So, good on ya Mary. Top job at snagging a prince.
Hope you're homesick, and you miss your mates, but don't come crying back to us about it later....
