Royal Luncheon

After watching the Royal Wedding and hearing the NBC commentators explain to me what was going on and the British traditions of what and why they were doing, I feel I learned some things.  Like some traditions was for very practical reasons, like the dress-code for the women that would be close to the queen, physically, had to wear something drab or unbright.  And the Queen’s dress code was to wear something bright, to make her stand out.  Isn’t that practical?  That is reason Jimi Hendrix was fired from the James Brown band, he was better than the leader.

It got me thinking, what if to get a good press coverage of the wedding the reporter and chief writer of the blog Chicken-fat was invited with an all- expense paid trip to cover the wedding.  
Look!  Here is the chicken-fat star reporter sitting down to eat at Royal After-Wedding Luncheon now.
Waiter:  Sir please, remember when the Queen enters everyone is to stand.  And also stand for the newly marrieds when they arrive.
Chicken-fat:  No problem, I got it.
Waiter:  And remember, do not start eating until the Queen takes the first bite.
Chicken-fat:  I got it!
Waiter:  And when the Queen stops eating, everybody will stop eating.  The meal is over.  Now, is there anything else I can do for you?
Chicken-fat:   Yes, there is:  a  “to-go box” please.


click on both to be able to compare and read he balloons.

Here is an unique comparison.  ARCHIE lampooned  by MAD Comicbook  in the early 1950s and again this month in MAD Magazine.  Both look like they were done by the same artist.  Wrong.  The first one (above) is by Bill Elder (died 2008) and the second (below) this month one by Tom Richmond, over 60 years later.

Will Elder’s ghost should smile at that, knowing imitation is the sincerest  form of flattery.

Pass the Kool-Aid and Ammunition!

Pick Your Own Interacting Forum

Sweat Mountain Dog Park

Some people sit in a bar; some people go to book clubs;  and there other ways of interacting, including what this this picture is:  Going to the dog park daily. 

After about three visits to a dog park your dog is spoiled and expects it.  And ideally you get to meet other people that know different things than you do and you can share your knowledge.   So, you might be a little less ignorant.   You learn the other’s personalities, their wisdom of choice, share jokes and wise cracks and so on.

There is only one requirement that is expected of you:  Pick up your own dog’s shit!

Regal New York

click to enlarge

Throwback Thursday:  Watching THE TODAY SHOW yesterday morning they were talking about the regalia of the Royal Wedding coming up Saturday.  They showed surreys, horse drawn fancy carriages and fountains in New York City.  It reminded of the mid 50s when we hit The Big Apple often.  Although I don’t remember it being called “The Big Apple”.

At the fountain in front of the Plaza Hotel, on 5th Avenue near Columbia Circle and Central Park, left to right: Dick Hyatt, Don Lash, and Ray Shultz.  When I directed them to stand that way, I was hoping they would look more like statues.

The other pictures is a picture of horse drawn carriages at the Plaza… that’s regal – right?

I wonder why?
