God Save the Queen

Have you heard? I recently received this email from London...



Because it is election year, and we are having such a difficult time choosing a new president, the Queen has decided to come across the pond and revoke our independence. Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all the states.

Effective immediately~

*The letter 'U' will be reinstated in words such as 'colour', 'favour', 'labour', and 'neighbour'.

*You will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous than a vegetable peeler. Guns should only be used for shooting grouse.

*All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will start driving your motorcar on the left side of the road.

*You will adopt the UK prices for petrol- of roughly $10/US gallon.

*A tax collector from Her Majesty's Government will be with you shortly to ensure the acquisition of all monies due (backdated to 1776).

*Tea Time will begin promptly at 4 pm with tea cups and saucers, biscuits and cakes; plus strawberries (with cream) when in season.

*The national food of hamburgers and fries will be replaced with fish and chips with mashy peas, to be washed down with an ale.

Cheers y'all,
Sandi

Hmmm... sounds like the makings of another revolution. Though a couple of those ideas are quite civilized, don't we have a couple of multi-billionaires who could pay off the UK's national debt, and then own it?

That is hilarious! I could go for the fish and chips part though minus the mushy peas ~ never liked those. The gas prices are killer now could you imagine?!!
Hope you have a fabulous week!

Sitting down at 4pm for tea sounds lovely to me. I may adopt that one whether the Queen revokes our independence or not. Sounds lovely.

Give me fish and chips over burgers everytime. J too, for that matter. We love our fish and chips and of course, washing them down with ale is right down the old boy's alley.

I've already tried inserting those U's...I guess this and the above are ingrained in my genetic makeup, since most of my ancestors arrived here from GB.

Cute post, Sandi.

I thought I'd come back and insert just one more "sounds lovely"...what's up with that first paragraph!

Yay! Welcome to my world ;0)

What? No fish and chips?
No washing machines located in the kitchen?

Good luck with those roundabouts. They are tricky! :0)
