And lo! A child was born.

Postby Heid the Ba » Mon May 06, 2019 2:01 pm

Shifty gold-digging darkie/lovely Hollywood star has given birth to a son, who one day will have the choice of renouncing his titles or going up against the wall with the rest of them.
Get it up ye.

Don't be too hard on the mother. He dug up gold when she considered him for marriage, if you ask me. Having her on the Firm probably ups the average intelligence level of the whole gang by about a third.

I doubt they'll give the little one the chance to renounce, though. True Bolsheviki won't have such delicate sensitivities.

Splice the mainbrace!

I’d give him the chance, but I’m more of an Anarcho-Syndicalist than a Bolshevik.

I think if y'all could survive Andrew and Fergie, you'll be able to survive Ginger and his Spice.

All part of the Monarchy’s plan to bring the US under their rule again.
Is there such a thing?

Well well, look who it is!

But in this case, I think the plan is to bring the monarchy under US rule.

Her failure to renounce before the birth was an inexcusable blunder.

The 'HMCS' on the hat is a little hard to see. :)
I mentioned it because I remembered them stopping the ship I was on to bust out the rum for William's birth in '82. I don't think they carry booze anymore, so I doubt there were any tots going around yesterday. I think the RN will have had a 'splice the mainbrace' though.

The RN switched to beer in the early 1970s, they probably still carry rum for medicinal reasons.

Would it surprise you to know that every British Army vehicle has a tea urn?

So he is SOOOOOO SUPER-SWEET, whoda thunk.

And he's named Archie. Think what you want about the father's intelligence, but kudos for not giving a wet fart about the comme il faut.

I was thinking Archie Panjabi, the SGDD's former colleague who was in a different shit show about lawyers. I seriously doubt the bairn will be ginger given the mother's ancestry.
