Loyal subjects of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II today celebrate across the Commonwealth our beloved monarch’s birthday on 21st April 1926. Long may you reign over us! HM is 81 years old today and still alive though recovering in hospital after a Papal head-butt.
The Queen’s birthday has brought drought relief to southern Australia – you can turn it off now Liz, at least around Newcastle – and a much appreciated long-weekend for her grateful, ever-abased, peasant folk down south.
Australia Zoo is holding a uniquely Australian celebration of dubious propriety. If you can stay in a Queen-sized bed at the Zoo with one of their pythons (to be specific, not HM!) you go into a draw to win the bed. No you do not also get a date with HM.
And I thought my Bindi joke was of questionable taste.
