Depends. If it was the real Queen, keep in mind she's 87 years old.

Helen Mirren, on the other hand, is 20 years younger.

"She was saying, 'shut the f*** up, people have paid f***ing a hundred pounds for their theatre tickets'. She said the F-word about 20 times. I kept saying, 'we didn't realise' and she was like, 'just shut the f*** up'. You couldn't get a word in edgeways, she was proper on a rant."

I wish someone had recorded this. It sounds awesome.

By about the sixth I would have waved to the drummers and told them that this nice lady would really like to hear more so try extra hard.

Read the exasperated drummer, then watch the video, then read it again. He goes from an innocent with a plausible story to a doofus standing there drumming in front of an old lady trying to get him to stop making noise, saying, "Shut the fark up? What? I didn't realize, mum. What? Shut the fark up? *still drumming* What? I didn't realize mum. What?" **CLANNG CLANG CLAAAANG**

I don't agree with you much, but I've gotta say that I'd definitely do the same.  Upset person?  Fine, I'm sorry and I didn't realize I was causing a disturbance.  Continue to heap a shiatload of verbal abuse upon me LONG AFTER I've apologized and agreed to stop with the noise?  Fark it, I retract both my apology and my offer to be quiet.

Nonsense. The Act of Union was in 1707, but this only affected the Scottish and English parliaments.

The Union of the Crowns was in 1603 when Elizabeth I of England died without issue and James VI of Scotland became James I of England. The crowns of England and Scotland remain separate entities to this day. As for Wales, it's a principality, not a kingdom.

Same reason you need a written constitution. "Consent of the governed" is all very well in theory, but in practice there needs to be some sort of official symbol of power to rubber-stamp the social contract, as it were.

(To be honest, though, I think a big part of the reason we keep them around is just so we can keep on reminding them we can get rid of them any time we want, and they can't have us locked up in the Tower or hung, drawn and quartered or anything like that any more. The last two monarchs who tried to pull that kind of crap ended up beheaded and exiled, respectively; they continue to serve only at our pleasure, and they know it.)

So we had a collection of gay musicians, drumming in the streets to raise awareness of a gay music festival.

And then we had Dame Helen Mirren, who is, incidentally, a beloved gay icon, come out and cuss at them to stop.

This may be a win-win incident. Dame Helen Mirren persuades the drummers to stop drumming or else go do so someplace where it will not bother her audience and those of the surrounding theaters. The gay musicians got a personal performance of Dame Helen Mirren in 'Sweary Queen Tells Us All To Go Shove It,' as well as an anecdote to eat out on for years to come. The fellow from the cast of 'Les Mis' is appreciative of Dame Helen's actions and sends her a congratulatory Tweet. Everyone is happy. Peace is restored.

I have long held a theory that deploying beloved icons of whatever community is making a ruckus to go and speak sense to them would solve a great deal of unrest and help keep demonstrations not only civil, but reasonably quiet. It is nice to see the theory tested. Now we just need to march some teabaggers past Rush Limbaugh's office and see what happens.

Helen Mirrin. She's good, but is she Scott Thompson good?

I'd like to see those two old queens test the mettle of their royal jelly on the stage.

I'd don't usually go to performance arts events any more (or anything that requires I mark a date and a time in my calendar and then remember it) but I'd make an exception for that. Or possibly Scott Thompson mud-wresting Don Cherry while debating gay marriage.

Cru-el. That's ku-el with an "r".

Speaking of performance arts, I see that John Cleeves is going on tour. It is called "The Last Chance to See Me Before I die" tour. I think he got the idea of Last Chance to See from Douglas Adams. A number of interesting people and bands come through Ottawa when the weather is tolerable, which means between the Arctic cold and the Tropical sauna seasons.

That is something worth seeing also, I am sure. I still watch all my Monty Python TV shows and movies in regular rotation (including the Lost German Episode). When I first bought them on VHS tapes (as a youth I said to myself "Someday I am going to own these"), they were $26.00 each for the full set of 23 tapes with 3 episodes each. That's because the new chain store Chapters had good stuff but high prices on British imports, they were somewhat cheaper elsewhere.

Now you can get the whole set for $99 or less and they fit in the space of a regular DVD boxed set. Look for it in stores today! You can see Douglas Adams in some bits if you know which episodes to look at.

Episode 42.

Drats. The Easter Egg sort of gives itself away for free, doesn't it? He wrote some of those bits, and I understand that the weird tall guy who walks into the see is him, as well as the doctor in Episode 42. He's also one of the Pepper Pots, the weird and aggressive women. I believe he's in the sketch where the ladies recreate a famous battle in the mud. Look for a guy who towers over John Cleeves.

But I digress.

There sure are a lot of weird, wild and wonderful people in the world if you know where to look for them, aren't there?
