How can they be sure that it's not her breasts that are upside down?

Maybe she was planning on standing on her head


The horror.... The horror.....

I'm just thankful that they didn't include a photo of this atrocity so I will still be able to sleep at night.....

Next thing you know she'll be wearing some big scary ass hat... oh wait, never mind.....

i knew these people didnt know a bass from a hole in the ground.

Maybe her ramparts were to blame- eww- old ramparts

C-bol - gravity, Dear, that darned old gravity.

Poor Queen mum. Now she'll have to arrange another daughter-in-law killed.

Fisherman's fly or not, you haddock constantly watrout for yourself when you're a celebrity.

I mean, look what snappered to Salmon Rushdie. Granted, that's different - he fooled a-round in matters of the sole, but st-eel.

Maybe she was fishing for compliments.

Sad that she needs to pin a lure onto her bosoms this soon after her marriage.

This reminds me of that time I went fishing with my dad and we caught Alaskan Horntailed Snapper Brooches.

Actually, that might have been my girlfriend, and we might have been shopping for brooches.

Well, really, I might not have been there, per se, but we were upside down and there were definitely brooches involved.

Come to think of it, that was during my impressionist period, and I think I was sniffing paint brushes.

Uh-oh. Is this thing on?

*slowly fades into the background*

Does anyone else think that a 100 year old fishing Royal is amusing?

Okay, just checking.

Golfwidow: Loved it!

elle - I think any 100 year old fishing is amusing.

"Got one! Oh my hip!"

First a new Pope now this i am going to hide under my desk and suck my thumb.

OH that wacky Camilla - a (fish in a)barrel of laughs!

D'Art - *snork*

D'art: walk the plank, chum.

Anyway, it's ok, the brooch was only loaned, or as those quaint British newspapers say, leant.

Poor Queen mum. Now she'll have to arrange another daughter-in-law killed.

Tacky, DougBo - anyway, it's granddaughter-in-law.

the upside-down fish brooch tells Charley that it's time for his favorite fantasy....

Jeff, you say 'tacky' as if it were a bad thing.

(and the Queen Mum is playing canasta with John Paul II currently)

Or the Queen Mum is fishing in the great trout stream in the sky.

They goodness they just "lent" it to her.. if she can't properly wear it, then let's have the bloody thing back now.

I don't know what the fuss is about.

I regularly wear my broochs upside down.......

Oh, wait, that's my britches that are upside down....

I fail to see the reason for all the foofaraw ... now if Camilla had her breech upsi ... um ... nevermind ...

"The Brooch's gone BREECH!"

uuuuh, that's gonna hurt.

You're missing the really interesting story in the links to the right. "Body found in alps is missing earl".
How can you tell if a body is missing anyone, much less Earl?
Or is "Earl" a name for a body part that might no longer be attached? Those Brits have funny names for lots of stuff!

Car Keying Guy: "Aaah, my Earl is missing".
Guy whose car was keyed: "Yeah, it's sticking on my car's antenna. It looks quite artsy up there, you should be glad to be part of the creative process".

Flash - you win funny points.

*hands Flash a tiny certificate*

Ew. Okay, the ear on the antenna was a bit much.

*grabs certificate and tears it in half*
*hands Flash back the smaller half*
*ponders briefly that true halves are equal*

" Cause Earl had to die, na, na ,na , na ,naaaaa, na"

A girl who wears Queen Mother's brooch upside down has royal crack up.

I think that Alpine earl might've been a typo ... as in a police report ...

Body missing ear l.

as in, its left ear was gone ... mebbe coyotes ate it ... do they have coyotes in the Alps?

(Do they call law enforcement people in the Alps "police"?)

Lincoln was a 'mo? Time for me to "come out" and not be so quiet!

Nah. That would be too easy. Besides, I have inside info on the brooch.

English historians claim that wearing the 100-year old fishing brooch is an opportunity to send secret code to Queen Lez, er, Liz, as has been done for decades. Wearing it sideways means William and/or Harry have been caught wanking in the royal sheets again. Upside down is a short message, just two words. One word is "you." The other is not exactly clear, although it is known that it's not "thank" you or "bless" you. The first letter appears to be an "f" and the word is four letters long.

So . . . how do we know the queen mum wasn't the one wearing it upside down?

We are not amused.

British Fish may not be amused, but I am amused, and at the end of the day, that's all that really matters.

Jun - you can actually tell that the brooch is upside down?? I'm impressed.

WAY off subject:

My son's pet snake, Rex, is missing. He was last seen Sunday evening and I noticed he was gone last night. I've staked out the toilets but I still can't find him. I don't know where else to look. Any suggestions? Now that I think about it, my daughter's hamster is missing and my little dog, Bessie, too. Naw, just kidding about that last part, Rex is not one of those huge python monsters, but the thought of him sticking head out of the toilet at 2:00 a.m. just gives me the willies. Help!

Wow. I've never seen the word 'brooch' typed out so many times before. Say it often enough and it starts to sound funny. :D

Welcome back Trystan, it's nice to see you - y u haven't been around for a while, post wise that is!

Have you been blurking?

I couldn't find the missing Earl story... *snif* maybe they noticed and fixed it

Maybe an earl, like the title-bearing type, went missing and they've found his body.

Let me look ...

And here it is.

I liked it better when it was something funny, like a body missing a guy named Earl.


This was what was supposed to happen.
