So they cut his bells off?
 
2012-06-26 11:13:43 AM  
Whew. Had me worried about my team's QB for a second.

Look kids! Big Ben Beth. Parliament.

Big Ben is the bell.

tallguywithglasseson: Big Ben is the bell.


Sigh. Yes, this.

Quasar: Whew. Had me worried about my team's QB for a second.


Heh. I had the same reaction.

You have to admit it would get people riveted to the Steelers home opener.

It might be a good thing for Roethlisberger to get his balls cut off.
 
2012-06-26 11:53:15 AM  
So Big Beth is going to have some Big Ben inside her? Hawt.
 
2012-06-26 12:03:02 PM  
Hey look, kids!...

It's Bootay! Tay!

You can call it Beth, but it will always be Ben on the inside.

Big Beth Big. Big Beth Bad. Big Beth go whoomp whoomp whoomp.
 
2012-06-26 01:57:28 PM  
"Large Lizzy"?

And yes I Know Ben is the Bell and Lizzy will be the tower but that just means from now on we'll have to say "Big ben is inside Lizzy" and really, who wants that?
 
2012-06-26 01:58:28 PM  
Does anyone call the Sears Tower whatever it is that it's called now?

I suppose it's easier and cheaper than actually building a monument to the queen. Welcome to the Age of Austerity.

It will only remain Elizabeth Tower until Parliament sells the naming rights to a telecommunications corporation about five years from now.

Pleased.

"No bell struck from this time forward may be wider than her Majesty's buttocks".

London calling's going to sound a little twee in the future.

There's got to be a Regina joke in this somewhere.

Your mind is totally controlled. It has been stuffed into my mold. And you will do as you are told until the rights to you are sold.

it's been said already

Big ben is the bell, not the tower

/bears repeating

I still call Mile High Stadium "Mile High Stadium" instead of "Invesco Field at Mile High" or "Sports Authority Field," so good luck with that.

andersoncouncil42: it's been said already

And yet, nobody cares and the common global populace considers the whole clock tower to be Big Ben.

Deal with it.

I prefer Black Betty

Oranges and lemons,
Say the bells of St. Clement's.

Cocaine and meth,
Say the bells of Queen Beth.

Isn't the damn thing dedicated to Queen Victoria already?

Under the clock face - "O Lord, keep safe our Queen Victoria the First."

radarlove: I still call Mile High Stadium "Mile High Stadium" instead of "Invesco Field at Mile High" or "Sports Authority Field," so good luck with that.


Progressive Field will always be "The Jake".

Also, this headline really got my hopes up for transformer Roethlisberger.
 
2012-06-26 02:14:14 PM  
I'd like to congratulate Beth Roethlisberger on being open enough to acknowledge the gender she is on the inside. This is a great example of the huge strides transgendered people have made. Congratulations to Beth for being the first transgendered major league athlete!

They call me Big Mac.....Beth.

there is a clapper joke in there somewhere.

The queen has the "clap"per now? na

somebody thought with her getting up in the years she could use a clapper (clap on, clap off, the clapper) and got the most expensive one they could find? na

/got nothing
 
2012-06-26 02:15:20 PM  
I bet it will catch on just like Ronald Reagan National Airport here in DC.

oh no, now they're going to have to rename its Twitter account!

You owe me a move say the bells of St. Groove
Come on and show me say the bells of Old Bowie
When I am fitter say the bells of Gary Glitter
No one but you and I say the bells of Prince Far-I
 
2012-06-26 02:20:29 PM  
The queen can't take all of Big Ben, even though she loves the clock
 
2012-06-26 02:21:33 PM  
What the fark is wrong with Brit's besides bad teeth... you don't see Thailand renaming The Grand Palace Bhumibol Adulyadej Palace... he's the world's longest-serving current monarch & I think in History.

I look forward to the day I can piss on her and Philip's grave.
 
2012-06-26 02:21:38 PM  
Big Bend National Park seen rejoicing.
 
2012-06-26 02:21:56 PM  
Apparently, according to the article, the bongs from this bell are legendary.

what you talkin bout willis?
 
2012-06-26 02:24:55 PM  
So, from what I understand they are only renaming the tower. The bell, Big Ben, will still be Big Ben. That would mean that Big Ben will be ringing in Elizabeth on a daily basis.
