    Amazing. Zonker actually has some pretty sound advice! Probably more to come.

    It’s been suggested that “mad” King George III (the ruler during the American Revolution) suffered from porphyria.

    Could that have resulted from too much inbreeding??

    Of course, we know now that intermarriage breeds impotence and insanity, but the Hapsburgs didn’t know that in the sixteenth century.

    Okay, that’s a really low blow on Trudeau’s part, especially to a woman who did so much to keep Londoners morale up during the Blitz.Also, she wasn’t even technically royalty when she married Elizabeth’s father.

    Well, Diana’s boys followed her example. Maybe the royal gene pool is getting a bit of new blood.

    I’m pretty sure they took that advice to heart. I’m not sure it’s working out so well, but time will tell.

    The Queen Mum was 97 at that time. She was entitled to be forgetful.

    step 2.. you have to be an actual parent, otherwise you raise sexual deviants and predators like Andrew.

    They asked Zonker to leave when he sang “He’S Got The Cutest Little Dinghy In The Navy”

    “The royal bloodline isn’t what it used to be. Too much intermarrying I suppose. I always say: _’When you reduce a family tree to a family bush, you just can’t hide as much beneath it.’”_
