A Giggle And Some Much-Needed Perspective

If you’re of a certain age you’ll be familiar with Madonna’s portrayal of Evita in the film of the same name.

Given the stupendous ego* and monumental misunderstanding* involved with the fellow and his place in The Universe I can’t help but imagine ol’ Charlie-Boy flouncing around Buck Hice this week, dashing from room to room, mirror to mirror, making similar demands of his entourage. No idea whether Charles sings bass baritone or falsetto. Choose whichever you think appropriate, bearing in mind charges of High Treason and penalties accorded thereto.

…Let’s get this show on the road
Let’s make it obvious
Charles is off and rolling…

I came from the people, they need to adore me
So christian dior me from my head to my toes
I need to be dazzling, I want to be rainbow high
They must have excitement, and so must I

(Charlie’s dressers:)
Eyes, hair, mouth, figure
Dress, voice, style, image

I’m their product, it’s vital you sell me
So machiavell me, make an argentine rose
I need to be thrilling, I want to be rainbow high
They need their escape, and so do I

All my descamisados expect me to outshine the enemy
I won’t disappoint them
I’m …. their … SAVIOUR, that’s what they call me
So Lauren Bacall me, anything goes
To make me fantastic, I have to be rainbow high
In magical colors

You’re not decorating a girl for a night on the town
And I’m not a second-rate queen getting kicks with a crown …. &etc

*When I say ‘stupendous ego’ and ‘monumental misunderstanding’ I allude, in part at least, to a forthcoming ceremonial, and to proclamations such as this one, paraphrased: ‘Peasants Instructed To Swear Allegiance to King Charles the III’rd‘… I never watch, read, or listen to the British Bullshit Corporation, but link it here since it seems to match the news item wonderfully, corporate “soul” for “royal” “soul”.

Just a thought, but I can’t help it.

Try it – imagine the scene with ol’ Jug-Ears instead of Madonna.

FYI The Cardinal and I will be avoiding use of any canal tunnels for the foreseeable, just in case.

BTW – isn’t that Chanel that Madonna’s wearing in the lead photo above?

Do try to not get the song and the vision of Charlie-Boy flouncing around stuck in your head for the week, won’t you.


Estimated. From the Public Purse.

In a country – in a world – with a more vast divide than ever before betwixt uber-rich and poor. In a country where High Street banks are failing and Food Banks are flourishing.

Where tact, good taste, and sensitivity are, it would seem, door-nail cold.

  1. Apparently there’s a large anti-monarchy protest planned for London on Coronation Day. Somehow I doubt the BBC will be covering it. I won’t be watching anyhow. I’ve got my street party to organise – loads of union flag bunting to put up, and I’ve got sweep the beggars and nurses out of the gutter first.

    1. What I can’t understand about peasants is, why do they have to be so smelly and ugly? If only they could be nicer and have better manners and some old money behind them then we wouldn’t have to whip them so. Still, I won’t lie to you – I have my fingers crossed for a large haemorrhoid strike in the vicinity of Westmonster this Saturday. Also one of those flaming space rock things like the haemorrhoid that killed the other dinosaurs.
