Oh indubitably, Herbert.

There’s to be a wedding apparently you know.

    pip pip, govnah!

  2. 260Oakley says:

    “They’re in for a royal wetting if they don’t take us out for walkies soon, right Phillip?”
    “Spot on, Herbert.”

  3. awwwwwwwwwww ! Snuggle buddies !!!!!
    (ahem….Beep !)

  4. you chaps take a gander at the T-Mobile Royal Wedding — that’ll wake you up

  5. tracylee says:

    I’m guessing Miss Kate Puddleton is an old family friend?

  6. Emmberrann says:

    Eckchually, we’re awl rawthah chuffed about this whole celebritation, dahling? Ahn’t heving tea with us on the mawning? The invitetion said something about fleegling 4 in the ack of emma.

  7. Alice Shortcake says:

    Actually, those puppehs are expressing about as much enthusiasm for the royal wedding as me and everyone I know (if not the majority of people in the UK). I’d rather snorgle a small furry animal than watch two complete strangers getting married.

    I have, however, bought a new dress in which to boycott the royal nuptials.

  8. Mary (the first) says:

    Ok, this made me laugh. Not interested but have to buy a new dress to say so! 😀

  9. Mary (the first) says:

    I’d also rather huff those puppies than spend even a second thinking about a wedding of two strangers. They’re a lovely couple and I wish them well but otherwise, couldn’t care less.

  10. TrixandSam says:

    And a hat with some flair?

  11. Oh! So cute… they look like they’re falling asleep. As soon as one does… beep!

  12. I don’t intend to watch the wedding, but I think they’re a cute couple, and I think it’s great that William was allowed to choose his own wife (and NOT from some inbred, upper-crusty, old family) instead of having one foisted on him. So maybe they’ll actually be happy together.

    As for these two pups, I wish I was doing what they’re doing right now. I’ve been staying up way too late as it is, and I’m still trying to catch up on my sleep from Sunday night when the upstairs neighbor had his lady friend over and they were…um…enjoying themselves. A lot. 🙄

  13. Next thing that happens is a lovely, toothless puppy yawn.

  14. @TrixandSam: I really don’t like talking about my flair..

  16. Martha in Washington says:

    OMG!! I can smell the puppy breath and hear the tiny chuffing noises from here!! I SOOO wanna be in the middle there!

    As for the RW: I’ll just watch the best snippets on youtube afterward. (No way in hell I’ll be getting up at o’dark thirty to watch it on the telly.)

  17. skippymom says:

    Aww, you people are a bunch of party poopers. If I had TV I would definitely be getting up to watch the wedding, and no doubt crying all through it, too. I love this stuff. I was in London for William’s parents’ wedding (no, not as a guest, but I was on the sidewalk as the procession went down the street) and it’s one of my most shiny special memories. You can all take your “couldn’t care lesses” and go whatever. And Skippy says so too.

  18. bookmonstercats says:

    I am planning to wear my ironic tiara complete with best net curtain stolen from the bathroom window, with which to express my extreme disapproval of the whole shebang.

  19. Martha in Washington says:

    Is it because I said hell? It’s because I said hell, isn’t it? *looks around for the bartender*

  20. bookmonstercats says:

    but…. but… there’s frocks… and flowers…. and cakes…. and carriages

    Not that I’m planning to spend the day veg-ing in front of the telly with some cava, mind you…. any excuse

  21. Martha in Washington says:

    I did get up very early in the morning (4:00EST) to watch that one, but I was in high school and still believed in fairy tales at the time.

  22. The ear flap resting on the other pup x_____x

  23. I hear you. Here in the West of Ireland, we’re much more chuffed with her Majesty coming to visit in May.

  24. Party at skippymom’s house! Bring tissues! And a tv!

  25. skippymom says:

    Yes! I’ll mix up a big trough of Pimm’s Cup! And the kitties will make dozens of tiny crustless sandwiches! Filled with Fancy Feast!

  26. I’ll catch it on the news, I am curious to see the dress otherwise I would rather watch puppies.

  27. 260Oakley says:

    I look forward to seeing your picture in “Hello!”. Perhaps you could include a bun or two in your outfit to up the disapproval quotient.

  28. tracylee says:

    “I saw it in the window and I just had to have it!”

  29. tracylee says:

    me too, skippymom, I’m totally riveted, and I don’t care who knows it.

    okay, maybe I do, a little :-/

  30. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:

    Carol Burnett FTW!~!!!

  31. Peanutcat says:


  32. Lewis n' Clark says:

    I’m TIVOing…but I wouldn’t mind two pups to watch it with, even if they sleep through it. Also, anyone see the wedding cups being sold, with Harry instead of Wills by mistake? I bought two!

  33. skippymom says:

    So, can I expect you at my party?

  34. Who’s getting married?

  35. That was the problem with Charles and Diana. He was kind of forced to marry her, because she was more “suitable” than Camilla. I have read that quite literally right before he walked up the aisle he muttered to himself, “I’m making a big bloody mistake.” No wonder the marriage collapsed.

    I’m with you about the puppies. I’d like a good sleep, with one of those pups as a bed-warmer. I think they’re cuter than William and Kate.

  36. They’ll be worth MILLIONS! :mrgreen:

  37. I read the northern edition of “Hello!” called “Ayup!” (as seen on Wallace and Grommit). :mrgreen:

  38. victoreia says:


  39. victoreia says:


  40. Charles was told to marry a virgin and Camilla wasn’t a virgin.

  41. Perhaps ear blankies should be a new rule of cuteness.

  42. I’m actually working a Royal Wedding View-Along event that the Mouse Weddings is hosting. I’m working with the Princess-inspired gowns and jewels. Start time is 3:30 AM. We’re expecting 500 crazy people. While it’s free, with food and drink, there will be souveniers for sale. Will and Kate in mouse ears!

  43. I’m with ya, Skippy! I don’t usually give a crap about weddings, but ohh, those royals do it up right. Any excuse to soak up the visage of flouncy fancy dresses and hats. Oh, the HATS. With netting and feathers and sparklies, and crowns….. wheeee. I confess I’m a bit of an anglophile. ; )

  44. Camilla being married kind of took her out of the running.

  45. I get that way when I eat radishes. :mrgreen:

  46. I know; it’s keeling me! So cute!

  47. Martha in Washington says:

    I think I read somewhere that Camilla wouldn’t wait for Charles to finish his military career (or something) so married someone else instead. And we know how that worked out, don’t we?

  48. So cute…

  49. tracylee says:

    of course! mammoth feathery hat and all!

    er… not a hat made of mammoth, mind you, but a rather large hat, which includes feathers. may or may not be of the mammoth variety.

  50. freetomato says:

    Is it just me or does puppy breath smell like a bowl of shredded wheat with milk?

    I would love to gently boop their tiny noses.

  51. No, it was because you said “snippets.” Oh, look, I said it, too.

  52. Jehovah! Jehovah! :mrgreen:

  53. Julia (the one in BC) says:

    When I read the pups’ dialogue I thought those accents were supposed to be American Southern.

    Then my British husband pointed out NO one in the South is named Herbert 😉

  54. And naturally a grown man of 30+ couldn’t possibly be expected to suck it up and deal with it.

  55. Emmberrann says:

    Oh, but Julia (in BC, wheahevah theyat is) dah-lin’, theyah ah fellahs named “Herbut” in the Sa-outh, but y’all jes’ sayin’ it the wroung way. Heah’bouts, folks jes’ say “Her-but,” y’all know whut Ah mean?

  56. Emmberrann says:

    I didn’t know that was the story. Surprised me. I had heard it was because she would have had to divorce Parker-Bowles in order to marry Charles, and the Royals were very anti-divorce (witness Margaret and her Lieutenant Townsend). Not to mention, of course, that Parker-Bowles was a Royal Equerry in the Queen’s household, of all things! Apropos of nothing, what does an equerry do?

  57. Emmberrann says:

    BTW, who says these puplets are guy-dogs, anyway? What if they are girl-dogs and are named Poopsie Muzzlepoushe Sleppingdeep-Ffeatherstone, and Pippa Weigelia Arthur George Leontine, and they missed the Royal Do because no one remembered to wake them up to see the tiaras and all that stuff? Oh, poor li’l babies! How will you ever get over missing the show?

  58. baby birdie says:

    British puppehs! I’ve always thought that accent was cool.

  59. Queen of Dork says:

    Aw skippymom, I wish I could have been at your party! I caught a bit of the wedding before I left for work this morning and am watching the rest of it now. It’s lovely!

  60. wow, that’s bad, 260oakley.
