An Officer and a Twit

Hal G. P. Colebatch’s thoughtful lament today on the peccadilloes of the UK’s Dirty Harry made me ponder what the always dignified Elizabeth II ever did to deserve so many undignified relations.

To satisfy my curiosity I made a few international calls. My sources in the British film industry tell me a major motion picture (ever heard of a minor motion picture?) is being made of Harry’s military career. The title is “An Officer and a Twit.”

I know Elizabeth II doesn’t answer her own phone. But when she hears one ringing in the palace, I’m sure the first thought that runs through her mind is, “What now?!” As a republican, I’ve no idea what a monarch’s prerogatives are. But can she have her entire family confined to quarters?
