I am the other subby trying to get this story green with a witty wrestling reference. I guess the admins dont like pro-wrestling or the joke falls flat on them.

Some of us have always thought "professional wrestling" was fake and stupid.

I'm sure the king of Spain is real farking upset about this.

This story has a lot of potential. It is writing the funniest and wittiest headline that is the problem on this one.

In an unprecedented act of royal contrition, a sheepish Juan Carlos apologized, saying as he left the hospital: "I am very sorry. I made a mistake. It won't happen again."

Not until the next time he goes on safari

The best part is the WWE/WWF name change happened 10 years ago. So in a few years the reference will be lost on young people.

IT'S STILL FUNNY TO ME, DAMMIT!

Also, I feel like a cartoon with world leaders acting like WWE characters has potential. Sort of a Lil Bush feel to it with typical WWE storylines, but every episode ends in some kind of match with shades of Celebrity Deathmatch.

"I am very sorry. I made a mistake. It won't happen again."

That's a good line if you do something stupid while drunk. You don't travel to Botswana and shoot an elephant because you had one too many, or had a momentarely lapse of judgement.

/that said, if it's regulated, then what's the big deal. Plus he's a king, he should get to shoot large animals.

He's king - he can do what he wants. When the story first broke (months ago) the bigger outrage was that the monarch was running around hunting elephants while his country was in financial crisis (as if the King has any real power in Spain).
 
2012-07-22 10:30:14 AM  
Seriously, who hunts elephants? Does he target practice with the broad side of a barn?

Juan Carlos might want to cancel any royal trips to New Zealand with this news. Date night in Wellington:

It's never a good idea to mix tequila and Jägermeister.

Sure, as a king or just as a wealthy dude, he can shoot all the elephants that Botswana allows him to shoot... he just can't do it and expect to remain president of the WWF.

Finally, a news story the public can relate to. A King, having to give up something he holds dear to his heart because of his other love for hunting pachyderms. Box office gold.

Len: "You got a couple of things though that could get in the way of this promotion. Like you should probably give up your membership to the all white Woodvale Country Club."

Over Easter, the king's 13-year-old grandson, Felipe Juan Froilan, shot himself in the foot with a shotgun, even though Spanish law dictates you must be 14 to handle a gun.

I didn't know Spanish royalty behaved like US rednecks?

I can imagine how artificial that "hunt" was, and yet he still broke his hip. Pathetic.

Maybe next time he'll use one of those "remote-controlled hunting" services that are used by the infirm.

I am quite outraged by this. This King is an honorary member of WWF who are strong advocates of protecting these endangered animals which are being killed in great numbers by poachers for their ivory tusks and being driven from their habitat due to development -- and he goes on a hunting exhibition to kill these poor animals. I assume this King did not seek to kill the elephants because he was poor and hungry and needed to eat elephant meat or needed to sell their ivory tusks to pay his rent A stupid and cruel thing to do and I can see why Spainards are growing sick of this monarchy.
