More secrets of the Royals.

new portrait of Queen Elizabeth, currently in the Tate Modern














Great typo by Reuters a couple of days ago... A rather dull story about bees was brought to life by a rather overzealous spellchecker. I quote:

"With its highly evolved social structure of tens of thousands of worker bees commanded by Queen Elizabeth, the honey bee genome could also improve the search for genes linked to behavior" (I wish the Americans would learn to spell).

It goes on to finally explain the reason why the Queen has ruled for so long:

"Queen Elizabeth has 10 times the lifespan of workers and lays 2,000 eggs a day".

No wonder she's looking a bit tired these days.

Her Majesty Popeye the Sailor...

Gunh-gunh-gunh...

(And thus Zoe demonstrates that it is impossible to type a Popeye laugh)

Personally, I think she looks like a gurner. And what the hell was up with the photo of her with a carrot through her head?

LZ, everyone knows that Popeye laughs like 'uck uck uck'. I actually quite like that painting.

To be honest, it's better than the painting he WAS going to do... He wanted to paint her as a nude in the style of Spanish master Diego Velazquez.

The Queen nude? He could have gone to the Tower for that.
