Sounds good to me! Any decent party I've ever been to had all the boring
folks standing uncomfortably in the living room, while the good, illicit
fun stuff -
the necking & fooling around, & passing around the reefers - happened
... up in the attic, or down in the basement. Hmm... ;-)

Yuck. Diesel, maybe. Petrol?

No no no. You've got it all wrong. It was actually a hit commissioned by
the kids - William & Harry. Like Estavez? Esquavez? you know-
those 2 brothers in the States that offed their folks a couple of years ago.

Motive: Oh, sure, mommy tried to protect the dear little princes from the
media, and from royal life. Oh, sure, she tried to make 'em just 'normal
Fuckin Mom! Didn't she realize they WANTED the royal glamour and attention.
They sure showed her. Dad's cool, of course - he just treats 'em like the
they are; hunting, polo, good regal stuff. Let him marry Camilla now and
they can all be a happy family of snobby little bluebloods.

Anyway, it's either the kids, or else it's the same guy on the grassy
knoll who did JFK... or come to think of it, maybe it's really Elvis. He
just stood there bloated in the tunnel, and when the headlights reflected
off his rhinestones and sequins -
freaked them out and caused the car to flip.

Yeah, right. Next!
