He doesn’t look that good for a 20 year old.

Pretty pessimistic for there to be only two X’s.


#6

Didn’t this happen recently? Or am I trapped in a TIMETUNNEL?


#7

This sort of thing crops up every now and again, yeah.


#8

There are some very specific details, it’s very strange.


#9

can’t believe they would knock up an obituary for a 120 year old man to have to hand for when he pops it. outrageous!


#10

…?


#11

“XX”


#12

Get a room, you two.


#13

Capital Xs mean full intercourse.


#14

Maybe I missed the point of japes’s post, but I assumed either a typo or a misreading of Roman numerals. Maybe he was suggesting that ol’ Phil looks 120.

Anyway, analysing the shit out of a joke is a surefire way to make it even funnier.

Lol.
I like how William is all “oooooh, I don’t want to fly a helicopter once in a while any more, something people pay to do for fun, because I’m gonna help out more with Royal duties*”
*go on more holidays
god I hate them all!!!

They cropped up when he announced he was retiring. Today is his last official engagement so I guess there’s been more accidental slips when filing the Prince Philip stories on the CMS.


#17

my favourite was when the mail got the Knox verdict wrong and had direct quotes from family members etc


#18

It’s all just based on what current protocol states.


#19

That CMS must be really tricky to use.

I mean I don’t recall ever running one where it was that easy to click ‘publish’ on a completely different unpublished story.

Original script dialogue for Hodors last works in game of thrones were found a little wanting eh?
