A MESSAGE FROM THE BANNER BARON
The Queen of England “owns” all of the dolphins in British waters. Saw it on the Interweb so it’s got to be true. She also exerts dominion over all of the swans on the Thames River, a notion which creates a big stir each year during “Swam Upping” when, over a five day period, the royal swans are caught, counted, and “ringed” for future identification. We shan’t have a swan go missing, shall we. Her majesty is not required to have a driver’s license (although she has mastered that skill) nor does she have (or need) a passport. But here’s my favorite: she has two birthdays! And the entire British Empire celebrates both of them.
Now, that’s cool.
How’s that for a roundabout tie in? Cheerio!
