RIIIIIGHT! Sure they are. I believe that as much as I believe that Queen Elizabeth is Turkish in heritage.

Very unlikely as her husband is Greek.

Of course - your so correct.  Nurse, just give him his next doses - he'll be back to normal soon.

Of course! What is it worth?  A Beaver's word is just not reliable.

From http://www.thebiographychannel.co.uk/biography_story/494:0/1/Prince_Phillip_Philippos_Mountbatten.htm

Prince Phillip (Philippos) Mountbatten
born: 10-06-1921
birth place: Corfu, Greece

He was born in his parents' house on the island of Corfu, the son of Prince Andrew of Greece, and named Philippos. Following the first abolition of the Greek monarchy, Philip was forced into exile with his poverty-stricken parents; he was famously carried in a makeshift cot made from an orange box.


I will graciously accept your apology.

Well now, I guess I do need to stand corrected on this issue, but claiming he son of a Greek and a German [Prince Louis of Battenberg changed his surname to Mountbatten (its literal English translation) during the First World War at the request of King George V] to be anything but a commoner in the first place seems to press the bounds of peerage to the limits.

But then the Queen isn't even English, either - she, a Windsor) i.e, German (Wettin of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha)

Ah, so you now admit she's not Turkish!

It is all Dutch to me!

The Royals are all interbread creatures formed from alliances made between royal families in other countries and ours. They just used themselves as bargaining chips. The only Queen not to do this was Elizabeth I, who enjoyed playing the field. This is why the Queen isn't truly British but then who is? This is why I hate racists because they are all too ignorant to realise that they are as foreign as everyone else.

JimBob, the Beaver has finally flipped. He is imagining that the sticks that he is chewing on are laughing and what is more he is turning into a hippy as he is ending his sentences with the word 'Man.'

You're displaying a dreadful lack of knowledge of punctuation. Had I meant it to be as you claim, I would have put a comma before "man".

I was never taught punctuation or grammar at school as I was taught under the Thatcher government. Apparently they didn't think it was necessary. Anyway a lecture on comma usage has the tendancy to put me into a coma.

I do appologize for having been of little help in this matter, M'lady. Today is the first day I have been able to type since having a pate and 14 screws inserted into my right upper humerus to repair surgically a rather badly broken arm on Monday, latest.

I do blame it on Castor the Bollucks who sent the thug with the sledge hammer to do the job of breaking my knee caps but, as usual "doc" couldn't fine the right thug. This one was so dumb he had to ask me what a knee cap was and being reluctant to offer any assistance, he just swung the hammer, catching me just below the shoulder on the right side. (I hope you didn't pay him, doc, he left you digital camera behind with you name engrave on it - claw-scratched probably.) You didn't get the pictures of the pain I was in as you wanted for your sick pleasure.
 
About all that is redeeming about this latest experience is the morphine, administered intravenously. Reminds me of the time in Rangoon when I was led astray by another(?) furry creature - a large human-sized rat-like creature, into an opium den.

About all of the latter part of this missive is the IV Morphine. Only beavers get to be human sized so it had to be a beaver. Perhaps even a younger version of the one with which we now deal.

JimBob, the Beaver has finally flipped. He is imagining that the sticks that he is chewing on are laughing and what is more he is turning into a hippy as he is ending his sentences with the word 'Man.'

You right, he is over the edge. Has been for quite a bit.

I'd stay in for a few days as my thugs were told to rip off your left arm and beat you over the head with the bloody stump! But if you are already in pain I don't see the point so I'll call them off.
I hope you weren't naked hand gliding again and that it really was Beavers thugs that did it.

Actually, I was attacked by a very large steel gate, weighing over 2000 pounds, that did me in - seriously.

Yes. It crept into his room in the middle of the night & whacked him with a large monkfish.
