Reminds me of a tasteless German joke:

Wer war die lezte Indianer? Dodi

Literally : Who was the last Indian? Dodi, but Indianer is pronounced in such a way as to sound like In Diana!

Ha! wow that was bad.

Excellent headline. So it turns out the ol' bag was just another money grubbing, power hungry bint. But don't think Mr. Duke wasn't getting any on the side either.

How can something that happened 70 years ago be reminiscent of something that happened less than 10 years ago?

As a historian, I am offended.

The poor sap.

I saw the story before, but let me join the chorus and say that it was a great headline.

Well at least Wallis Simpson was a real babe. *retch*
2003-02-01 12:55:57 AM  
Ummmmmm, what with the Duke being sort of, well, Naziish, it's likely that he'd have been forced off he throne anyhow. The Wallis Simspson thing was just a fig leaf.
2003-02-01 05:05:36 PM  
On first read, i expected it to say "a Connecticut Yankee in Kink Edward's c_nt. But I guess there's children about an' we oughta keep it clean.
