Phil quotes. You just gotta love the stroppy, racist, mysoginist old bastard.

"Everybody was saying we must have more leisure. Now they are complaining they are unemployed" (during the 1981 recession)

"If it has got four legs and it is not a chair, if it has got two wings and it flies but is not an aeroplane, and if it swims and it is not a submarine, the Cantonese will eat it" (at a 1986 World Wildlife Fund meeting).

"Bloody silly fool!" (in 1997, referring to a Cambridge University car park attendant who did not recognise him)

"It looks as if it was put in by an Indian" (pointing at an old- fashioned fusebox in a factory near Edinburgh in 1999).

"Deaf? If you are near there, no wonder you are deaf" (to young deaf people in Cardiff, in 1999, referring to a nearby school's welcoming steel band)

"You are a woman, aren't you?" (in Kenya, in 1984, after accepting a small gift from an indigenous woman)

"If you stay here much longer, you'll all be slitty-eyed" (to British students in China, during the 1986 state visit

" Are you still throwing spears at other tribes ?" to Ivan Brim, Djabugay Elder at Tjapukai Aboriginal Park, Australia 2002

...although his score can be explained by his presence with the Queen at celebrations marking her 50 years on the throne.


Hehe. Fifty years on the throne. That's important in the U.K. I guess, but here in the U.S. that makes for one hilarious image of someone spending 50 years on the crapper.

And don't forget pounding the bong....

The queen may have been on the throne for 50 years, but Prince Albert has been in the can since 1902.

Celebrating 10 centuries of inbreeding.

Sponging is a very satisfying sounding word. I'm going to walk around saying it all day. Sponging, Sponging, Sponging, Sponging, Sponging.

Prince Philip is the embodiment of royalty.

He can insult people and they have no clue how to react.

GOD BLESS ROYALTY!

After seeing a hockey game, Philip remarked "Rather like an organized punch-up, wasn't it?" Makes me wonder what he thinks a disorganized one would be like.

headline was so obviously written by an American, though. Makes me wonder why he bothered reading a story about the royal family at all.

Still, over 500 engagements at age 81. When you even find the time for a dump?
 
2003-01-02 10:52:12 AM  
Johnny_wadd:- I object to that remark. Queeny and Phil the Greek are only second cousins (and interestingly enough third cousins too).
 
2003-01-02 10:53:07 AM  
Why are the English Queen and Prince German and Danish?
 
2003-01-02 10:54:19 AM  
I woulda written a headline along those lines if I'd submitted this article (I didn't). I'm British and agree with it 100%. Shoot 'em all, I say.
 
2003-01-02 10:55:00 AM  
I am by no means a fan of the royal family but don't you think those "Phil" quotes would actually sound quite funny out of the mouth of a stand-up comedian.

The guy is in the wrong job really, by accident of birth.

Accident nothing, by design of his uncle, Lord Mountbatten.

I think he's worth every penny. Insulting foreigners - especially the humour-challenged lardarse Yanks and goose-stepping, deckchair stealing Krauts - should certainly be a full-time job.
 
2003-01-02 11:01:56 AM  
Apparently he's been workin' that member hard on Camilla

Luckily the British make asses out of themselves enough that we don't need to hire anyone full time.
 
2003-01-02 11:03:20 AM  
I'd like to thank Britain for retaining it's monarchy for ceremonial reasons, seeing how it provides Americans with endless comic fodder and many derisive jokes about their lineage.
 
2003-01-02 11:03:48 AM  
humour-challenged lardarse Yanks

That coming from an anorexic, snaggle-toothed, turd burgler? I feel so put upon now.
 
2003-01-02 11:04:44 AM  
You all seem to be under the impression that the British take the piss out of these parasites less than you yanks do. Definitely not so.
 
2003-01-02 11:04:46 AM  
"Apparently he's been workin' that member hard on Camilla"

thats Prince Charles

let's not forget his comment to a scottish driving instructor, something along the lines of "how do you keep the locals off the booze long enough to take their test?"
the man is a comedy genius. it's just a shame that the royals appear to be trying to spare themselves some embarrassment by, even with this record number of engagements, never letting him within 15 feet of a journalist anymore.
 
2003-01-02 11:06:34 AM  
DOH Goes to show how much I know about royalty...
 
2003-01-02 11:06:54 AM  
Besides, I thinks its nice of the US to give your royals jobs over here, like Fergy pushin weightwatchers.

A British Charles Barkley?

I have never heard him apologize once though.

I hear Trent Lott is trying to get philip how he does it.

I was thinking that just now - maybe the subject got wind of it and kicked up a fuss

At least Phil the Greek gives some entertainment value, unlike the other dozen or so useless tossers we taxpayers have to shell out for

I can assure you that if you did the sight of royalty would cause you to dismiss all thoughts of bloodshed and you would stand - how shall I put it? - in awe. Now a president? I mean, why not shoot a president?
....
Let's shoot some pheasants. Ten shots at, let's say, a dollar a shot. I'll shoot for the queen and you for.....well, whomever.
</english bob>

Love that film.

what good are those royalties anyway? you british people are strange, paying taxes for someone so they can have the luxury. hmm.... hey we do that here too in the USA! the difference is that it's different person every 4 or 8 years or so... he he he
 
2003-01-02 11:23:17 AM  
Time was when being a royal meant something! Insult who you like you're the boss by right of conquest come and have a go if you think you're hard enough!
 
2003-01-02 11:26:15 AM  
He's the queen's biatch anyway.

That's why our is a better system - fewer removal bills

"Time was when being a royal meant something! Insult who you like you're the boss by right of conquest come and have a go if you think you're hard enough!"

I think Queeny and Phil the Greek should start back up on Empire building again. Invade a few small countries and what not. Earn their keep. Then I'd give them some respect.

Otherwise the misrable cow can sod right off back to bosch-land where she belongs. I'd keep Phil though, good cultural ambasidor.
 
2003-01-02 11:27:02 AM  
It really is about time the Brits started voting in their Head of State, we can take confidence in America to see what better quality of leader we can expect.

Allegedly he's a bit of a playboy behind closed doors, was cheating on her royal highness even before they got married, and she knows about it aswell.

Kinky

I heard that when Prince Phillip was told that Stevie Wonder can't read he said "Because he's black?".

Yep, I would have pulled the eject lever if I was a US citizen when Bush came in.

"I'll get my coat..."

I think you better. Tsk-tsk... :)

Here we go:

Sure, we pay taxes for the royals, but I've read they dredge in a lot more money from tourism than they cost?

We could get a President instead. We could end up with a warmongering, barely literate, pseudo-Nazi hick from the deep south (Cornwall). Or worse still, does anyone even want to contemplate El-Presidente Tony?
