Saturday: "You In a Heap o' Trouble, Boy!"

The Powers-That-Be don't think this is funny.  From the Usual Source:
When the Queen’s away her guards will play. Our top video this week – filmed while the Queen was on holiday – shows a guardsman outside Buckingham Palace injecting some fun into his two-hour shift by pirouetting and performing comic walks for giggling tourists. The laugh-a-minute Ministry of Defence is apparently taking the incident very seriously and launching an investigation into the unruly Grenadier Guard. 


  1. I don't think so. OTOH, on a little island south of Bubyan, I well recall a sailor who decided to light a huge bonfire while on guard at one of our 3 perimeter stations. As the flames leapt 15 feet into the air, he explained that he was cold.

  2. @ Skip: Especially British brass, methinks.

    @ Curtis: Sometimes you HAVE to wonder.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
