AIM: # 1 Posted on 30.3.02 1353.04 Reposted on: 30.3.09 1359.01 There seems to be a sense of shock here in the UK, so I thought I'd post something.
She meant a lot to the public as she was one of the last royals of the old guard that meant something real which is a rareity to say the least.
RIP Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. Promote this thread!

But shock? She was 101 years old! I'd be shocked if she hadn't died today. But, in the spirt, I'll share my queen mum joke. When I was in England I took a tour called "Eccentric London" which turned out to more or less be a euphamism for "Gay London." The guide told a story about when the queen mum was being transported somewhere by the merchant navy. Apparently the merchant navy has a rep for being gay. Also, apparently the queen mum had a rep for being a drunk. Anyway, in the story the queen mum couldn't sleep and decided to got to the kitchen and get a drink. Upon arriving, she saw the merchant navy having a party and engaging in their shenanigans. TO which the queen mum said "I don't know about you old queens, but this old queen would like a bottle of gin."
