I'm sure Brown elected to stand all on his own: it made him feel superior.

She's a little weak in voice though. She really needs to work on her projection.

Everyone got along with Ike. Her father got along with Ike. That was the secret to his success.

Don't think so, they ran in different circles - she was a virginal teen, he was an unattractive old guy - there was no future in it.


Quote:

Didn't everyone?

Quote:
Did she feel compelled to shower after meeting with Tony Blair?
Hmm, heard that Blair was a family man and kept refusing her?

Quote:
Did she drink alone after hearing a sermon from that sanctimonious Jock Gordo Brown?
Nah, she drank with her good buddy Wiser, Jack Daniel's, and his partner Jimmy Beam, pal Johnny Walker his brothers Black and Red, and lastly there was her good Old Grand-Dad.

Quote:

He's better than us.

Quote:

She had to birth kids with long horselike faces and big ears, plus she's 89 years old, cut her a bit of slack.



Quote:

Agreed, the King heard some nice things about Ike, had folks open some doors for him, that's how Ike got his start.

Quote:

Nah, JFK liked German girls who were still German and spied for the enemy.

Quote:
She could've met Jumbo.
I'm sure she did, Field Marshal Henry Maitland Wilson, 1st Baron Wilson aka "Jumbo" Wilson, was Ike's deputy in the Med. I have no doubt that Jumbo told the King what a nice fella Ike was, the King invited him to invade Europe.

Quote:
Their conversion would be recorded.
Aren't they all?

Quote:

Yep, after HRH refused to buy the plans of the defences of West Point from him.


Quote:

Quote:

No big deal, he's dead now anyway.

Quote:

Nah, they'd talk WWII, when he drove "Aeroplanes", and she drove "Lorries".

Quote:
He'd have old Liz in a used Ford in no time.
I'm think'in more like a Bedford, with a stick.

Quote:

Burned into my eye sockets.

Quote:

Wish I could.

Quote:

Salmond? I believe the Duke aka Mr. Queen, catches them in rivers near Balmoral with his rod and fly, brings them home.

Jealous, your are!

Over paid, over sexed, and over here. That was your complaint about us.

Are you sure it was not that you were under paid, under sexed, and under Eisenhower?

Don't you mean 'man belong Mrs Queen' as the natives of Tanna refer to him.? They apparently worship him as part of a cargo cult
