Her Majesty is celebrating her 80th birthday this week.
I, for one, would like to show my appreciation by wishing her a good one and many more to come.
New Bible: Queen Mother 'Bigger than Jesus'
ThroneOut has learned that from next year the Queen Mother will replace Jesus as the central character in all official Church of England literature. A senior Church of England spokesman said, "The Bible is widely regarded as the original 'papyrus nasty'. The idea of a bearded terrorist nailed to a lump of wood is hardly the kind of story we want to tell to children these days."
Tony Blair strongly approved of the change, "The Queen Mother has done far more good than Jesus, she won the war, saved humankind and also emitted a beautiful glow from her whole body. The sun really did shine out of her arsehole, and I should know, I got my tongue right up there at every opportunity."
Work has already started on rewriting the bible to replace Jesus, the poor carpenter's son who healed the sick, with the new Queen Mother character. Old scenes featuring lepers and prostitutes are to be cut in favour of riveting new incidents including a spectacular six-horse accumulator win and all day drinking binges.
The demise of the central character is likely to be the most eagerly awaited part of the new Bible. In the original, Jesus dies a martyr's death by crucifixion in order to save mankind, returning from beyond the grave a few days later. "I've never liked this part of the Bible, the public is too sophisticated for tosh like this these days", commented a senior clergyman. He denied that the new scenes featuring the Queen Mother dying during an afternoon nap after a heavy meal of roast swan and three glasses of port would be less inspirational. "Everyone likes a happy ending", he said, adding, "She went to the East End during the war you know. All Jesus did was cheap PR stunts like walking on water and conjuring food out of thin air.".
A large-eared man at Windsor Castle yesterday was strongly behind the move. "If there is any servile worship and singing of praises, it should be aimed at us and not some long-haired Jewish communist who hung around with prostitutes and criminals."
The Catholic church had no plans to revise it's own version of the holy book. A papal spokesman said, "The Bible? We're far too busy trying to keep kiddy-fiddling priests out of children's pants to worry about that old thing."

Long live the Queen!
happy birthday to the queen.
would be a good time for britain to consider the idea of republicanism, it's about time we evolved.
"...ever wonder why they kill the weak ones, baby?"
The last week I saw her beeming smiles two times. First when harry got out of Sandhurst and then in front of Windsor Castle on her birthday. She sure was blissed out. Nice to see her looking so happy. Only Queen of England I have ever known. Plus she has been through 10 US presidents!
Too long in Exile, too long not singing my song.

Too long in Exile, baby you just arent my friend.

Happy Birthday to the Queen.
Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five.
I've always found monarchies to be arrogant and stupid.
Everywhere in the world.
And yes, that includes.....somewhere.
what dealings have you had with monarchies around the world snaff?
My opinion, and anyone elses, has nothing to do with "dealings" with monarchies.Originally Posted by Unwell
My opinion if from what I've read about them, and what I see on the television, and what I also get from the British press.
Monarchies are antiquated stupid.
It's a ceremonial title based upon heritage.
A sign that a country and it's mentality is truly backwards.
ah, ok.My opinion if from what I've read about them, and what I see on the television, and what I also get from the British press.
I'm not trying to be disrespectful.
Another thing is that the press harrasses the Royal family in the UK for example.
Everything Harry does is splashed on the fron page.
Diana was a very good person, I think. She was harrassed constantly.
there are several other nations with M's and I feel the same in general.
That's just the way I am.
Putting someone on a pedastool, assuming they are better - or above - all others.
My username and avatar is a perfect example.
I feel the same way about this when it comes to M's, religious leader, miltary leaders, dictators, politicians, etc.
Dare I say: sometimes we need to cut the tall poppy down.
please check my original post for my opinions on the british royal family.
i just thought it was amusing that you accused a whole swathe of poeple you know nothing about, arrogant and stupid. which seemed to me a little, well, arrogant and stupid.
I commented on "Monarchies."
A Monarchy is a system.
And it's a system comprised of people.
