The British press reacted with predictable excitement

And what do you think was the reason for the excitement?

  • The folks of Falkland decided to join Argentine after all?
  • Baby Assad declared war on UK?
  • A huge cosmic goat the size of Solar system is going to attack Earth and tear it to smithereens?
  • England won the Mondial*?
  • British pound doubled its value overnight?
Nope to all of the above. It is just that British cops haven't recognized Prince Andrew, Duke of York, who was strolling in Buckingham Palace gardens and stopped him for questioning.


(*) That was really cruel and uncalled for, my apologies to English footie fans.

Well, he does have a history. Maybe he wasn't clothed.

Well at least the British cops did not open fire on Prince Andrew as what happened in Arkansas where a gallant SWAT unit killed a 107 year old man! Unfortunately no joke, read about it at http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57601870/swat-team-kills-107-year-old-arkansas-man-in-shootout/

re English footie fans, snoopy, no apology needed. Rather a sense of understanding and a nice ice-pack for their fevered brows. They always seem to expect (with nothing based on rational calculation) the England football teams will win everything in sight: clearly a delusional state, despite having invented the game.

We English rugby (15-a-side) fans, on the contrary, always live in hope but no expectation. Thus when we won the 2003 World CUp, it was a delight. When we got into the final in 2007, it was unexpected, and that we lost regrettable but not a disaster.

That should put the football fans in their place, he said, heading for his personal nuclear bunker!

Not mentioned, but you are right: who knows what shenanigans the royals are up to.

Yeah, this is what I call going out in a blaze of glory. Or what Dick calls "suicide by police".

Brian, congratulation for mastering the art of comment login.
Secondly and more importantly, it is a well known fact that conspiring Jooz support the All Blacks.
