Grumpy Old Moo


She's the richest woman in the world, is nominal Head of State in a myriad of countries (all of the swanky benefits with none of the heavy lifting), and she is Australia while Britain suffers under a cold snap. You think she'd cheer up a bit, wouldn't you? It must be generational- my grandmother pulls the same face in photos.

maybe she's miserable cuz her cricket team got ass-whupped by the natives. Again.

The Germans play cricket?

Weasel's little bruva said...

you can understand her being disapointed as I am sure that she thought that Australia had it in the bag after scoring so many runs...who'd have thought South Africa would get 438 in an one dayer. She's never happy when one of her teams loses.

Maybe all 80-year-olds are grumpy? It could be symptom of 'life' at that age?

weasel said...

Isn't this a jolly old commonwealth games of a comments section! Its like a joke- An Aussie, a Punjabi, and 3 Englishmen walk into a bar....

Good point brother minor- or maybe she's pondering the potential loss of revenue from the reduction of stumpage fees in the logging industry of NW Ontario in her dominion of Canada.

M!key- I think she might be doing her koala impersonation. Just compare the faces, ripper! So, has Melbourne been completely subsumed with Commmonwealth Games fever?

She's upset about that Aussie who pinched her arse 14 years ago. Germans bear grudges.

weasel said...

"Germans bear grudges." And their arses (shudder). Ever been to a beach on the Zuder Zee? Your average boxhead likes nothing better than parading the sands as naked as the day he was born, save for a pickelhaube.

Can you say ‘pickelhaube’ in a nice family blog like this?

Eeeek! A North American colonial! Quick Jeeves, the broom, the broom!
