Open Post: Hosted By THE QUEEN In Neon Green

June 11, 2016 / Posted by:

Queen Elizabeth II turned 90 in April but her mega-nutso-super-extra-insane-pinky raised-all Corgi extravaganza started yesterday. As Michael K told you yesterday was also Prince Philip‘s birthday, but duh, it’s the Queen, so she takes precedence. Yesterday was the ceremony at Saint Paul’s Cathedral and today is the Trooping the Colour parade. No, Trooping the Colour is not some LGBTQ Anti-Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell sort of parade/protest. It’s a parade celebrating the military and every year one of the troops gets its flagged waved high and stuff. It also is always held on the Queen’s birthday.

The BBC tells me that the queen has only ever missed one Trooping the Colour and that was in 1955 because of a rail strike. I’m assuming she’s chosen this neon green stunner to stick it to the memory of that strike. In fact, I’m going to blindly assume that she chooses the loudest Southern church lady ensemble she can find every year as a ‘fuck you’ for making her cancel her own birthday event. Even her husband understands that his birthday ain’t shit compared to her’s. I think I can also safely assume that the bright color is a not so subtle middle finger to the Royal enemy number one, Morrissey. I can almost hear her saying “Do you see me, dear? I’m right here. I’m 90 and I’m not going anywhere.” And that slice of Corgi shaped cake goes down even better knowing it was paid for with tax money. Happy Birthday, The Queen! I hope you Trooped the Colour real good!
