Because It’s a Bad Idea When Cousins Marry

Posted by gauloises1 on January 22, 2010

As part of his goodwill tour Down Under, HRH Prince William popped in to take in some tennistical action.

“And where are all the British players?”

“Well, jolly good show, anyway.”

Queen Serena. Imagine the possibilities.

    Remember when William was the hot one and Harry was the unfortunate one? I swear it was true for like a minute.

      Vaguely. Sadly William’s genes from his father have become increasingly predominant, and so have Harry’s … but we won’t go into that 😉

      This is reminding me of when I was at college and Diana died, and a friend of mine got obsessed with Wills and started writing fanfiction about him, and she asked me for my honest opinion on it and I just *couldn’t* take her seriously at all. Always felt bad about that.

        My friend in high school had a picture of William framed next to her bed. It made me uncomfortable.

          My friend photoshopped her face into a picture with both William and Harry, with the script below saying “Torn between 2 lovers — torn between 2 brothers.”

          Good times.

    Queen Serena may be one of the most awesome things ever- oh please let this happen.

    William seems like a nice dude- it is a shame about the hair. Some guys look fine when they are balding. He does not. He should pull a Jeremy Piven and get plugs (although Piven actually looked fina bald). I was hoping that Rafa would get some plugs over the break- but 2 weeks is I guess not enough timefor that. 😦

      I hadn’t realized how much he was balding until I saw these photos (although to be fair, I don’t know when the last time I saw him was).

    I noticed he had a special posh way of clapping, without causing any percussion to the flesh at all. Royalty are weird like that, gotta do simple things strange to differentiate themselves. Because let’s face it, Wills would not be looked at twice if he was merely the son of a businessman.

    And I have to add that his teeth scare me. They are just like Mark Petchey’s. Spoooky.

    I first noticed he was balding at last year’s Champions League final and I must say, he looks less bald now than he did then. I think I’m one of the few who prefer William over Harry, though his hair loss may change my mind.

    Y’all really gave me a good laugh. Picking on the physical appearance of the poor horsefaced balding Wills, coming from the Church of Lurch Lusting.

    Inbreeding vs. Acromegaly?

    De gustibus…

    I’ll take the haka-dancing, menopause green shirt wearing Lurch anyday. He was bothered by a bee during his match today, lucky bee….
