have interracial lesbian bondage butt sex with her?
At least, that’s what I’m thinking must have happened, to judge from the reactions of Faux News and the Brit tabloid press. I don’t presume to judge either woman, I just want to see the videos. (Personally I don’t see the attraction – the Queen of England is no spring chicken if you know what I mean.)
(Gee, I seem to have bought up the entire world’s supply of brain bleach. Sorry about that! )
She put her arm around the Queen, which some people have interpreted as a breach of protocol. It really isn’t a big deal, although, as John Oliver can explain, it’s dangerous for the First Lady, as she risks being poisoned and devoured.
Basic protocol dictates that you don’t touch the Queen, except to shake her hand when she offers it. Few years back, the Prime Minister of Australia dared to put his hand on her back, and he was branded ‘The Lizard of Oz’ by the tabloids as a result.
However there doesn’t seem to have been too much negative press here in The UK - the comments have been much more along the lines of ‘Look! The Queen’s doing girly bonding! How sweet!’.
Royal Officials have come out to say that there was no breach of protocol, as Mrs Obama is not a Royal Subject (unlike the Lizard of Oz).
Mark Twain was of the opinion that no American should ever offer any special courtesy to royalty of any kind. I sympathize with that position, but I guess there’s no purpose served to be a dink about it. But still…
I don’t have the cite, but I remember a visit the Queen made to America, some years ago. She was taken to view some kind of model minority housing project. The lady chosen to recieve her had been told about protocol, and not touching the queen, but instead did as she always did and gave the Queen a big ol’ hug at the door. Elizabeth was said to have a very surprised look on her face. She did, graciously, turn down the offer of a fried chicken dinner the lady had ready, although the hostess later said she hadn’t really expected the Queen would be able to stop for a snack.
It’s not cos she’s royal, it’s cos she represents the UK.
Same reason you chaps respect the office of the president, even when the incumbent is an utter arse.
I get to choose whether to bow to the Queen, as I’m her subject (hah, dream on yer Maj). You get to do a slight bow because she’s head of state for a friendly nation, same as I’d do to the head honcho of Japan if he came to tea.
See, that’s where it all began. Charles has complained about how cold and distant his mother was when he was young. All part and parcel of that “not allowed to touch” protocol that denies them Human Contact.
So a while back, the Queen got a great big helping of ‘human contact’ with a hug from a large black woman. And she liked it.
