If you can't go to the UK, then the UK shall come to you

From: The Olde Travel Agente, London Towne

Hear ye, hear ye!

Let It Be Known that (insert name) has hereby booked himself passage on ye olde steam boat to the colonies of New America.

He's a-coming, oh yeah, it's for real.

Signed

Her Maj., the Queen

Now I've heard it said that Liz (a.k.a. ER / Elizabeth II / HRH The Queen) has altered her accent somewhat of late from the received pronunciation to something at least vaguely approximating the manner in which some English people other than those with pretensions to nobility actually speak - and yet I still find it hard to swallow that "He's a-coming, oh yeah, it's for real" would be a phrase which might trip off her tongue (or typewriter, even) any time this century.

Nice try, though.

That's precisely what I said when the hunky Englishman who is coming here on Dec. 30 to visit yours truly wrote that to me right after he booked the ticket. He tries.

The Tower of London is still open for business, you know, and one can always silence dissenting voices with a swift chop from ye olde axe. Have faith o dear colonial friends!

This commenter sounds like he means business. Take heed!

Apparently, however, the Queen Mother does a well wicked Ali G impersonation. Boyakasha!

The Queen Mum ?? Isn't she a tad, er, dead ?? Doesn't leave much room for any kind of impersonation, much less a wicked one....
Not long now sweet thing :)

I think you'll find the Queen Mother, in deceased mode, is about as funny as Sasha Baron Cohen ever was / is / will be. A nicety of interpretation, perhaps?

Ok, anon. You've stepped over the line now. No one insults Borat, I mean Cohen, on my blog and gets away with it! It's a duel then - at sunrise!
