Long Lived the Queen

No, no, she didn’t die. My past-tensing of the verb “to live” (sorry about the verbing of the noun “tense”) is a clever trick. But today is a big day in British History.


You see, today is the very first day that Queen Elizabeth of England becomes the oldest person to ever sit on the throne of England. Today, the Queen is 81 yars and 244 days old, one day more than Queen Victoria on her last day on the big ugly chair. She is expected to live many more years.

    We’re keeping her going as long as we can. Charles is bonkers. Her mother (gawdblesser) kept going to 101, or maybe 102 mostly due to heroic consumption of gin. With tonic, obviously. Drinking it neat would be vulgar.

    Speaking of the Queen Mum, that reminds me of the following imaginary(?) conversation between two elderly ladies:

    Lady #1: Bless her, she [ed: the Queen Mum] was bombed during the war, you know.

    Lady #2: Aye, and she’s been bombed ever since.

    Shalom to all
    God continue to Bless Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
    I admire her and give thanks to God that a woman and a mother sits at the moment. Her occupancy is long standing and may it continue, as she embodies the image of a mother and what all women stand for, they are all queens and must keep themselves pure and undefiled with one mate.
