FTA: ...choosing the username "HME2."

Oddly enuff, she still uses this moniker to this very day mostly just to rate movies over at Rottentomatoes.

We already have to get off her Royal Lawn.  Now we have to get off her digital lawn, too?

No rockets and she's not in space? Space Nutters aren't going to like this.

So, Liz is THE original hipster? Take that, pseudohip wannabees.

you shed a real tear when the anamatronics puppet that was her mother finally ran out of battery life, huh?

It's probably as close as I'll get to this being appropriate in the next 5 years.

Kim Jong Il was online in 1942.

I really wish they'd found some way to parachute a raft of corgis in with her and Bond.

She's also a team killing n00b.

Impossible.

Gore did not complete law school, deciding abruptly in 1976 to run for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives when he found out that his father's former seat in the House was about to be vacated.
 
2012-12-25 11:18:06 PM  
I still can't forgive her for hoisting the bluewaffle meme on us all. When that biatch gets to trollin' she doesn't pull any punches.
 
2012-12-25 11:27:12 PM  
She's not the Queen of England, ya dopes, for the same reason that Barack Obama is not the President of California. The last Queen of England was Anne.

She was born in 1984.

However that was the best post in this thread, by far.

"How the Queen of England Beat Everyone to the Internet"
Unless she was destroying her retina developing ARPANET, complete and utter rubbish.

"Publicity stunt involving entitled royals" would be a bit more accurate.
 
2012-12-26 12:45:39 AM  
But I like Her Majesty!!

I wanted to lend her my Gramsy when the Queen Mum died.

Noob! Lenna Sjööblom was on the Internet in 1973. Link

It figures that the first popular image on the net would be of a Playboy centerfold.

Then she went right back to living one of the most luxurious lives on earth, on the backs of "her" people. All for falling out of the right vagina.

Bring back the guillotine

Typical....

The American's go through all the work of inventing something, making it awesome, and then the English think they've somehow contributed by using it.
 
2012-12-26 08:35:16 AM  
So it's "packet" like a "packet of crisps". Meaning "a bag of chips".

A bag on my Intratubes? It's more likely than I thought.

Reminds me of this

The most surreal story I've ever read. I would've killed just to be in the backseat, keeping quiet, and eating Chee-tos while this all transpired.
