Hey, if you find a good bathroom stall in London, you don't want to give it up.

No wonder they call it the "Diamond Jubilee."

Wow. I'd have run out of TP by now.

I hope that word doesn't mean the same in the UK as here. OTOH, I'm sure some of our slang horrifies them ("fanny pack" comes to mind).

WV was "coprat"-lots of possible meanings there...

This is serious. I had a patient develop bilateral sciatic palsies after she fell asleep for 6 hours on the can. I hate to think what 60 years could do.

Goodness! Who knew being queen could make one so constipated!

Come on, that's pretty weak. Surely "throne" means "the queen's chair" before it means toilet. Doesn't it?

There used to be a belief that the Queen didn't "need" - bit like they tried to claim with the N Korean chap. And yes - the English do also refer to the "throne". Usually for use by men who have taken the newspaper with them ;-)

We were always told that the Queen had everything sewn up at birth. She would never do anything so disgusting and "just keeps it in".. :-P. But then we're also told that she has a divine right to be our head of state based on the privilege of birth. Hmmm....

I saw this exact headline on TV during my lunch break. My co-workers spent the next fifteen minutes discussing their memories of the queen being "on the throne"... and I was the only one giggling.

Just Me said...

yes throne can mean the same thing in the uk.

And fanny pack don't even go there!!

True fact: One of the items the Queen always carries with her in a handbag is a chamois toilet seat cover, in case she needs to use the lavatory.

Yes throne means the same in Australia.

But there is no need for the rudeness shown towards our Queen one must remember she is our Queen in Australia; The same as in Canada,New Zealand and many British Commonwealth countries.

At least she has no say in our political life like your President in America; It's not permitted
