Boy George

A trumpet fanfare, a 21-gun salute.... Queen Elizabeth is welcomed by King George at the White House while thousands of invited guests crowded the South Lawn, eager to drink in the pomp and pageantry.

Seizing the moment, Commander Guy took center stage, remarking that the queen had dined with 10 U.S. presidents and had helped the United States "celebrate its bicentennial in 17.... err, 1976."

Then, to make sure the queen was thoroughly offended, he joked that the queen just "gave me a look that only a mother could give a child."

The queen sees George for what he is.

Where was she in 2000 when the voters needed "the look" to remind them that only grownups should be president of the most powerful nation on earth, not a reckless frat boy proud of his C- grades.
