Prince Philip, the husband of the British Queen Elisabeth, is infamous for his undiplomatic remarks. Here are his 90 worst:

Ninety gaffes in ninety years

Ghastly!  😉

Phil is cool.
I always loved his aloof and total out of this world remarks.

You simply knew that it was totally honest.

9. “It looks as though it was put in by an Indian.” The Prince’s verdict of a fuse box during a tour of a Scottish factory in August 1999. He later clarified his comment: “I meant to say cowboys. “I just got my cowboys and Indians mixed up.”

Whatever he said.

49 . Philip: “Who are you?”

Simon Kelner: “I’m the editor-in-chief of The Independent, Sir.”

Philip: “What are you doing here?”

Kelner: “You invited me.”

Philip: “Well, you didn’t have to come!”

He is setting him up and hop, in your face.

And personaly I always thought he did it on purpose. Just to piss off the PC world (and the rest of the world too).
You know, because he could.

My kinda guy.

61. “So you’re responsible for the kind of crap Channel Four produces!” Speaking to then chairman of the channel, Michael Bishop, in 1962.

Channel four in the UK, didn’t exist until 1982
I wonder how many of these are actually real?


Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.
