TERRIBLE STORIES  8:53 pm April 2, 2009

Does The Queen HATE Black Michelle Obama?

by Jim Newell

No, and if you’re wondering why your Wonkette has been posting stupid pictures and contests all day it’s because most of the “news reports” have been about how Michelle Obama, an Uppity piece of awful trash, “touched” (/shared a mutual quarter-hug with) old Queen Elizabeth, the divine ruler of the British Commonwealth. We hate to GO THERE but it would be nice if news organizations stopped being so racist sometimes. The Queen was not in danger (MAYBE). [YouTube]

It’s not the DARKNESS that threatened the Queen, it’s that she’s a secret socialist Muslin.

comradepaulson April 2, 2009 at 9:00 pm

Maybe The Queen was choking on a huge diamond and the Michelle was touching her back to help get the diamond out?

Or maybe Michelle is a Black Panther Sleeper Cell and was going to finally stab Whitey? (And how can you get more “Whitey” than the Queen.)

Or maybe she was killing a bug on the Queens back?

Or maybe our news media is a giant douche-sack?

[re=280109]Zadig[/re]: *it’s that MICHELLE’s a secret socialist Muslin.

Curse my unclear pronoun usage. The Internet Sheriff is already demanding I turn in my Grammar Deputy’s badge. At the disciplinary hearing I’ll probably argue that I can’t rule out Her Royal Highness being a horrible librul jihad subversive.

Prez & the Mrs. should have given Queen a silver framed picture of an IPod.

Later on,Queen had to be given oxygen, because a strange lady dare touch her royalness. And that’s the rest of the story ~Paul Harvey

Cicada April 2, 2009 at 9:09 pm

I don’t think you guys understand why people are so upset.
People aren’t supposed to touch the Queen because she’s FRAGILE. Do you have any idea how thin old-people skin is? It’s like tissue paper! You can tear a hole in it by blowing on it too hard. Also, her skeleton is made of matchsticks. Michelle could have broken a rib, easy.

From the upcoming memoir, Our Life in Service by HRH Queen Elizabeth II:

It was then that the mighty Negress reached down towards us like an Ethiopian Goddess from the sky. We immediately went flushed, as we felt feelings stir inside that we had not felt since we first learned to ride horses in our youth. We knew then that we must have her, if only for one night, before we leave the throne.

I think the real question here is: Does the Queen want to climb Michelle Obama like a redwood?

SayItWithWookies April 2, 2009 at 9:43 pm

I love how we can both pride ourselves on being the most (ahem) egalitarian society in the entire world and at the same time spend a whole day in a tizzy over whether it’s allowed for mere commoners to touch the queen. Like we think you get struck by lightning for defiling the last of the divinely appointed monarchs.

Yes, it’s true America — it is forbidden to touch the queen. She’s not even allowed to touch the ground, you know. She rides around that huge palace in a velvet palanquin carried by blind eunuchs who have every inch of the floor plan memorized. As she is about to alight, a young virgin girl races before her, spreading a trail of spider silk, lily petals and saffron before her to carpet the vulgar Italian marble.

So above mere humanity is the queen that she is not even aware that she has an ass. Such a word in her presence would have shattered like a banana in liquid nitrogen, so it could never be explained to her. So each time she defecates, she believes she is actually performing a meditation ritual over a chalice of holy water. As soon as she is done, a ten-year-old boy with wings grafted onto his shoulders distracts her by playing the harp, and as she stands up in delight, trained hummingbirds furtively wipe her behind.

Now you see what a delicate situation Mrs. Obama has put the queen in. It may be confusing if she finds out that a mere commoner could touch her and not turn into a pillar of salt. What to do? I know — we’ll just tell her she touched Mrs. Obama first. It worked before. Remember on her wedding night when we told her “he’s not really touching you if you’re singing ‘God Save the Queen’ in your head?” Heh, heh.

I love how American reporters and rightwing crazies, who wouldn’t know protocol if it came up and slapped the dicks out of their mouths, think this is a SCANDAL when the Queen and her various moldering courtiers/walking protocol encyclopedias don’t see a problem. God forbid Michelle touch Her Majesty! I mean, *gasp* she can’t trace her roots to Alfred the Great and/or Charlemagne, so she’s nothing more than a filthy commoner (read “uppity negress”). Who does she think she is, the wife (or “consort” in royal-speak) of the most powerful head of state in the world?

I also love how totally the Queen fell in love with the Obamas after about ten seconds. After Dubya and his Drug-Zombie Wife, anyone else must feel a relief.

At least this is better than that “shoulder rub” that Bush gave to Angela Merkel. Plus, on a positive note, the Queen reported that her sore middle back was now feeling “healed”. Hmmm….

wheelie April 2, 2009 at 10:14 pm

A few years ago, there was a mini-scandal when the Australian PM threw his arm around old Lizzie Windsor aka The Queen. I’m not a Subject of the Old Cow, but as I recall, the deal is that blokes should not fondle Her Maj, but certain Elite Ladies may grope her if they wish.

As far as I am concerned, Michelle could gob on Lizzie’s shoes for all I care. That’s not an anti-British thing, it’s just that as a citizen of a constitutional Republic, I could not give a f*ck about special etiquette is treating these supposed elites.

Fuck the Queen, is what I’m trying to say.

[re=280174]grevillea[/re]: Technically, it wouldn’t be assault, because assault is the apprehension of immediate touch that is harmful or offense. It would be battery. Battery is an intentional touching that is harmful or offensive. But I wouldn’t press charges or file a suit, because I’d only get nominal damages and the court costs would most likely be more than the damages. Besides, I’m always ready to be touched by any Wonketter. I trust all of you have washed your hands.

Here’s a tune for you: Class War’s “Better Dead than Wed”, one of my all time FAVORITE pieces of musically-seditious (anti-monarchy) poltical propaganda… how can one not love a line that proclaims “my dancing shoes are being saved for dancing on a Royal mass grave!” – Enjoy!

boy_howdy April 2, 2009 at 11:10 pm

[re=280194]Nerdalicious[/re]: Better that than the time Hu-Jintao was in town and the band struck up the Taiwanese national anthem. That was a scary moment–a gaffe’s a gaffe, but you don’t wanna piss off Daddy Warbucks.

Remember the first time Bush called on the queen? He brought along his own chefs (the UK press had a field day with “the five fajita fillers”) on the assumption that the food in Buckingham Palace was bound to suck, so he’d better have his own vittles. (“Yo, Blair! Mmmpf… smak… bring me some mmwwwmf more rolls!”)

Try as she might, Michelle and her voodoo hands will never have quite the same grip on the world’s affections. Whenever Junior wasn’t tugging on Hu’s sleeve, he was groping Angela Merkel or kissing King Abdullah. He never could keep his paws to himself, whenever they let him out to play. (Not unlike Upchuck on MTV’s Daria.)

Just to let you know that a former prime minister of Australia, Paul Keating was lambasted by all and sundry (especially sundry) for putting his arm around HM Q2 (guiding her into a room rather than giving her a hug) when she visited Australia in 1992. He earned the nickname Lizard of Oz.

[re=280268]tug[/re]: Guiding is a lot more uppity than hugging. Ironic, huh?

Rumours from the Guardian’s commenters:
1) The Queen initiated the hug
2) Apparently the Duke asked Obama what he;d been doing and he said: “meeting President Hu of China and President Medvedev of Russia”, to which the Duke replied: “Can you tell the difference between them?”

President Hu?

I’m all for monarchy as long as it produces Royal Heirs in a Swedish style.

Send a dispatch rider to Ben Disraeli! The bloody wogs have overrun Grosvenor Place and the Mews, taken down the Wellington Arch and are flanking the New Guard along Constitution Hill pathway!

Oh, never mind…

What century is this, again? I forget.

Besides, I’d hug someone who just gave me an iPod, too.

Also, what does QEII have to do with Divine?

And the MSM can all GO TO HELL, GO TO HELL AND DIE for being in a tizzy over this. It’s like the Paris Hilton news stories of our day.

Johnny Z.: Michelle has that look on her face that says “I’m about to haul off and bitch slap you” anyway, so it would have worked. And she would have looked fabulous doing it!

wish i could haul off and smack Miss Piggy Noonington. Snobby bitch

[re=280278]DC Hates Me[/re]: Thandie Newton! C’mon man, that is just plain wrong. Angela Basset plays Michelle Obama. She has the arms for the job. See “What’s Love Got to Do With It?” for clarification.

Did you see the photo with all four of them, Barry, Michelle, Queen, and Prince Phillip? For some reason I thought Phillip, bastition of ethnic tolerance that he is, was a tall man. Nope. Evidently, the Queen is the approximate height of a garden gnome and he could have considered a career as a jockey.

The wingnuts and idiots on the teevee are upset not because this is a breach of some old fashioned protocol they just heard of, but because a NEGRESS (aka A BLACK WOMAN) touched a WHITE ANGEL (aka A WHITE WOMAN). Next thing you know, dainty white ladies will be greeted by their black female acquaintances with hugs and maybe even French/Muslin kisses on the cheek! The horror of benign human contact! WE MUST PROTECT OUR WOMEN.

Americans will never understand Royalty.
Don’t touch the Queen !

[re=280118]Josh Fruhlinger[/re]: Michelle is 5’11″ according to some news report I read recently.

Michelle hugged Her Royal Highness while stating that when she tires of being First Lady in America she intends to assume the throne and rule Britannia. Hillary will takeover Bosnia, also!

The old Queen is now bless-ed.

The texture of her arms will no longer resemble Yorkshire pud, but shall be firm and ripe and youthful like the buttocks of her grandson, Hot Prince Ginge.
