Didn't some guy who called Prince Edward (or whoever the pedo is) "a sick old man" get his **** kicked in by the cops? Yeah, man, 10/10 country. Someone needs to huck a milkshake at the coffin.

Typical day in Britain, really.
Do you know, there were rumours (probably untrue) that we here in Ireland might do a day of mourning for her? For the symbol of a country that ground us under its heel for 700 years and basically tried to ethnically cleanse us? Oh no wait, that's ethically cleanse. No, I was right the first time.

I bet the one way you could guarantee a knife in the guts/acid in the face/call for hanging to be brought back/house burned down right now would be to say one bad word about the Queen. It's like the whole country (I know what you say about a split, but I don't see it, and even if it's there I guarantee it's nowhere near 50/50, whether it's sincere or not) has suddenly become a fortress for the monarchy.

Is that a euphemism? Please let it be a euphemism...

Mind you, if anyone did anything of that nature you can bet they would be gunned down to applause from the crowd. Didn't they just lose their **** because one guy "ran from out of the queue and approached the coffin?"

Aw, who wants to see her a zombie? "One must have brains! Bring one brains, this instant!"

Apparently, my country's connection to the Queen is our prime minister singing Queen in some London hotel. It sounds like he touched a nerve with some people.

I have no personal connection with the monarchy, aside from the fact Canada is part of the Commonwealth. I have some jubilee commemorative pins. Once in a while, they visit Canada. We make a big deal about it for a week or so, then they head home. It would be nice if they would pay their way when they visit, but whatever. It's one of those things I can't change.

Speaking of the royal family, do you Brits think you can take back Harry and Meghan? I'm willing to pay with my tax dollars for you to take them back and forgive them for whatever sins they've committed.

Edit: I'm not completely unconvinced that Harry hasn't swapped lives with Carson Wentz, it would explain his performance against the Jags last year, at least.

No surprise that the Commitment to America video would be filled with stock image and videos.

A lot of videos you see on youtube often use stock footage because if they use something from a Copyrighted Footage(such as a Random video from youtube), they would get sued.

Not sure how this enters the news.
