no no...they're too weak to throw spears from huffing gas all day long...

Follow directions closely: Insert right foot into mouth.

I am so tired of Britney Spears stories. Stop the madness!

Another classic from the Prince: "But they have such slitty little eyes!" -on a trip to a Hong Kong primary school

"Do you still throw spears at each other?"

"No...do you still invade countries, kill everybody, and claim it as your own?"
2002-03-01 11:59:46 AM  
That bloody embarassment.

Aero what he said to a bunch of British student s in Hong Kong was

"Watch you dont stay here to long or you will end up all slitty eyed"

Mind you he would fit right into fark, you dont suppose that his log-in is Fb

It couldnt be.............or could it?
2002-03-01 12:00:05 PM  
Well, Do they?
2002-03-01 12:00:25 PM  
Then there's the time he criticised an electrical box at a factory saying "it looks like it was put in by an Indian"...

If he wasn't so useless and pointless in a comical way, this would anger more people. :)

Hey Skidnuts, since when do the Scots invade anything that wasn't taken from them in the first place, Asshat?

Easy, Joe Don. You've got a point, but we didn't come here to pick a fight.
2002-03-01 12:01:07 PM  
We should hang his Greek arse from the lamp-post, but he reminds us what assholes we used to be.
2002-03-01 12:01:28 PM  
Wasn't this the same guy that told a fat kid that he could never be an astronaut because the lad was too tubby? Funny guy, for a Brit.

Reason #6423 to get rid of inbred royalty.
Of course, our own Dan Quayle was famous for making similar braindead comments during Bush the Elder's brilliant one term as well.
2002-03-01 12:01:34 PM  
It doesn't really surprise me, these people still call themselves kings, and queens. They live up in their own little fantasy world, doesn't know what "queens" are over here in america.
2002-03-01 12:01:43 PM  
Aaah, Phil the Greek. Shamelessly nicked from another site...

"Everybody was saying we must have more leisure. Now they are complaining they are unemployed" (during the 1981 recession)
"If it has got four legs and it is not a chair, if it has got two wings and it flies but is not an aeroplane, and if it swims and it is not a submarine, the Cantonese will eat it" (1986 World Wildlife Fund meeting)
"It looks as if it was put in by an Indian" (pointing at an old-fashioned fusebox in a factory near Edinburgh in 1999)
"Deaf? If you are near there, no wonder you are deaf" (to young deaf people in Cardiff, in 1999, referring to a school's steel band)
"If you stay here much longer, you'll all be slitty-eyed" (to British students in China, during the 1986 state visit)
2002-03-01 12:01:49 PM  

The sprirt is correct the quote sligtly wrong.

Phil "the Greek" as we affectionately refer to him was being introduced to an english guy living in Hong Kong.

PTG - "How long have you been living here?"
GUY - "About 6 years."
PTG - "You'd better not stay much longer or you'll end up with slitty eyes"

The guy is still a first class Arsehole.
2002-03-01 12:02:30 PM  
This reminds me of when the mayor of Toronto was going to visit Kenya, and he said to an aide that "he just pictured himself in a pot of boiling water with cannibals dancing around him"

Luckily I don't live in Toronto, so I didn't have to vote for him.
2002-03-01 12:03:09 PM  
At least he isn't the president of the only superpower in the world...
2002-03-01 12:03:44 PM  
I want the abolition of the monarchy, but I'd want to keep Prince Philip on. The entertainment value is too much to lose. The guy is a comedy genius! ;)
2002-03-01 12:05:13 PM  
Haha. Comedy gold. As you PC nitwits need to lighten up. This shiat is funny.
2002-03-01 12:05:18 PM  
FOR SALE: Hat. Fits much too tightly. Also, tie (same problem as hat). Seems to be cutting off circulation to brain. Will trade for some pot and beer. My grandkids love the stuff. Call Phil. 011.9382. 987645.
2002-03-01 12:06:04 PM  
if i smoke much more of this i'm gonna be all slitty eyed (and shiat).
2002-03-01 12:07:21 PM  
What a knob-end. And lest we not forget the comment he made about the massacre at a village in India being "exagerated".
2002-03-01 12:09:10 PM  
Ahhh, the Duke of Foot-in-mouth strikes again...
2002-03-01 12:12:34 PM  
I don't think you can really blame the guy for being such a curmudgeon. First of all, he's really old, and last time I checked, my grandparents said all kinds of politically incorrect things and my family would laugh at them. Second of all, look at the rest of the royal family! If you were married to the Queen, you'd have to find some way of having fun, and what better way than speaking your mind! I'm so glad Canada can still claim the Monarchy as our official heads of state (above The Governor-General)

Prince Phillip - the Archie Bunker of British royalty
2002-03-01 12:13:07 PM  
the way i figure it is he learned all his "info" from the queen mother hahaha. british royality is nothing but a bunch of rich white people with a backwards view on the world. if it wasnt for their colonialism then a bunch of the big current conflicts wouldnt even be happening. India/Pakistan, Middle East and the whole thing in Africa come to mind. all of those were inpart a result of the british farking up the countries when they moved in.
2002-03-01 12:13:07 PM  
That guy is mean like Longshanks in Braveheart.
2002-03-01 12:13:21 PM  
Also the Duke of Edinburgh manged to piss off all the scots by asking a scottish driving instructor how he "managed to keep the locals of the grog long enough to teach them to drive?" No wonder Scotland devolved!
2002-03-01 12:13:27 PM  
It's not actually that bad seeing that tribal spearings are still practised among some communities.

I like how when a Brit says something stupid everyone instantly condemns him and calls him an arsehole, but when GWB does there's apologists galore (or people saying 'If they get offended we should nuke them to teach them a lesson').
2002-03-01 12:14:02 PM  

Well, I do live in Toronto, and that little quip may have been more harmful than just an insult to the local African community.

This smartarse quip spilled out of his big mouth less than a week before the announcement of which city would win the 2008 Olympic Games, which Beijing won.

Still, Prince Phillip beats everyone else when you need an insulting comment at precisely the wrong time.
2002-03-01 12:15:34 PM  
This page almost deserves its own thread. It's all of the Duke's quotes over the years.
My favorite: "If it has got four legs and it is not a chair, if it has got two wings and it flies but is not an aeroplane, and if it swims and it is not a submarine, the Cantonese will eat it." (at a 1986 World Wildlife Fund meeting)
2002-03-01 12:16:32 PM  
Did you know that that so called "blue blood", which the british royalty pride themselves on is just an indicator of inbreeding? At least thats what my Bio professor says, supposedly your blue veins are closer to the surface if you are heavily inbred.
2002-03-01 12:18:44 PM  
The guy was president of the World Wildlife Fund at one stage, yet he likes nothing better that shooting animals.

Quality mad bloke.
2002-03-01 12:19:10 PM  
Hey, what's so wrong about asking a question when you don't know the answer? Give the guy a break.
2002-03-01 12:19:24 PM  
PlatinumDragon: From what I heard after the fact, Beijing was the front runner all along. Lastman farked up by saying that, but I don't think that put the skids on TO's Olympic dreams. The vote was so predominately in Beijing's favour that Mel could've saved the mayor of Nairobi's life and the Chinese still would've gotten it.
2002-03-01 12:19:45 PM  
"The bombing begins in five minutes"
2002-03-01 12:21:24 PM  
Yes, I think Prince Phillip should stop throwing spears at giraffes.
2002-03-01 12:22:56 PM  
OBB: Point taken, and I wasn't particularly anticipating the Olympics anyway. It was just a completely brainless thing to say, and he got walloped good for it.
2002-03-01 12:23:04 PM  
My boss wrote a letter to a guy that is visiting next week, giving him directions to where the office is. In this letter he wrote, "Even if the driver is from Somalia he should be able to find it. If all else fails, tell him we're in the same building as the DEA".

Now THAT strikes me as rather stupid to say.
2002-03-01 12:23:08 PM  
"I did not have sexual relations with that woman."
2002-03-01 12:23:58 PM  
[sigh] so true... at least Barbara Hall or John Sewell aren't in charge...
2002-03-01 12:24:21 PM  
"Of course, our own Dan Quayle was famous for making similar braindead comments during Bush the Elder's brilliant one term as well."

Yeah, but he was rightfully laughed out of the media spotlight within a few years, this farker's been appointed royal dumbass for a lifetime.
2002-03-01 12:25:14 PM  
The guy cracks me up. Has been saying shiat like this for years.
2002-03-01 12:28:52 PM  
Phil calls it like it is in many cases. I imagine he feels he's making all sorts of funny jokes. It's obvious some people find them funny (see above comments)
2002-03-01 12:30:17 PM  
Prince Philip is a god. He needs his own game show...
"Okay, question one: Which ethnic minority fitted this?"
2002-03-01 12:30:31 PM  
Bufoo, you rprof is a nitwit. The blueblood shiat is strictly from the days of a fashionably pasty pale aristocracy, indicative of their lack of toil in the sun.

Women even accentuated the blue veins in the boobies.

Of course, characteristics like horsefaces and hemophilia are, in fact, hereditary.

Ole phil doesn't sound so very different from me own Gramps, except he's dead.
2002-03-01 12:34:15 PM  
What a bunch of "politically correct" twats Crazy Ivan, Code Monkey, Mungo et al are. Quit whining. He says what he wants, he's old and he doesn't give a fark. So what?

Maybe you can all discuss it down at the local Lesbian black single mothers social group.
2002-03-01 12:36:16 PM  
Loki see loki do: Bufoo, you rprof is a nitwit

First off, do I even need to mention the grammer/spelling? Second of all, I took care to note that I heard that from my Bio Prof, so take it up with him. It was the only interesting thing in a long boring lecture.

P.S. Your excellent spelling suggests to me that you might have a personal stake concerning inbreeding.
2002-03-01 12:36:38 PM  
I've got a great idea to stop him spouting crap.
