Prince Charles to Marry That Whore Cont'd

In his last post about the Prince of Wales, the Kid described him as a 'professional nobody.' But really, His Royal Highness actually has a lot to do.

Did you know that Charles is:

1. A Lieutenant-General in the British Army
2. A Vice-Admiral in the British Navy
3. An Air Marshal in the Royal Air Force
4. Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Regiment of Wales
5. Colonel of the Welsh Guards
6. Colonel-in-Chief of the Air Reserve of Canada
7. Colonel-in-Chief of the Lord Strathcona's Royal Canadian Horse Regiment
8. Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Austrailan Armoured Corps
9. Colonel-in-Chief of the Parachute Regiment
10. Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Gurkha Rifles
11. Air Commodore-in-Chief of the Royal New Zealand Air Force
12. Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Regiment of Canada
13. Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Winnipeg Rifles
14. Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Pacific Islands Regiment
15. Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Canadian Dragoons
16. Colonel-in-Chief of the Army Air Corps
17. Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Dragoon Guards
18. Honorary Air Commodore of the Royal Air Force Valley
19. Deputy Colonel-in-Chief of the Highlanders Brigades (All of 'em! Seaforth, Gordons AND Camerons!)
20. Colonel-in-Chief of the Black Watch
21. Colonel-in-Chief 1st The Queen's Dragoon's Guard
22. Colonel-in-Chief of the King's Regiment.

Wow. That guy is incredibly busy.

Not to mention he must be, like, some sort of friggin' military genius or something. He's like Alexander, Hannibal, Napoleon, Clausewitz and MacArthur all rolled up into one! Why isn't he in Iraq working on the insurgency problem?


Charles Phillip Arthur George Mountbatten-Windsor
Military Genius


Seriously, if he ever tried to actually take command of one of these units, you think they'd frag him?

On another note. In research for this post, the Kid found out that Marvel Comics was going to resurrect popular professional nobody Diana, Princess of Wales as a mutant! Unfortunately, Marvel pussied out at the first signs of controversy, but come on... who wouldn't pay $4 to see Diana go up against Magneto?

Good to see the kid is clearly imbibing good spirits in-country.

Love your blog guys!

And the Prince is obviously an idiot - but hey - he's marrying someone who looks like a horse (um er or is that a horse's arse?) - so perhaps it will be a match made in Hades??

Gotta love them Brits!

As ever,
Colette
