Her Majesty's Favorite Purse

There have been 11 presidents of the United States since the Queen came to the throne in 1952 and she has met every one of them except Lyndon B Johnson.

And while we all admire and respect the Queen, this just goes to show she has her favorites like the rest of us.

Hey, Queenie is older than I am.

My 85th doesn’t roll around until June.

...and she has met every one of them except Lyndon B Johnson.

I wonder if the MI-6 warned her about LBJ's penchant for hanging out in parking garages and whipping it out when women were walking by to relieve himself, er, bladder..., or his habit of calling in staffers while he was sitting on the "throne". (/Robert Caro)

I remember hearing that when it first came out.

And the story about how he got his undeserved Silver Star sticks in my mind as well.

What do you suppose she carries in there?

I doubt she has much need for a checkbook or keys...

Agreed, the Queen must have been warned soon after the Kennedy assassination as to what a vulgar slob LBJ was, and to steer clear. His public attendance to bodily functions was already legend.

“Truth is always stranger than fiction” alert!

Monty Python Australian faculty club sketch:

“Hot enough to boil a monkey’s bum!”

“That’s a strange expression, Bruce.”

“Well, Bruce, I heard the Prime Minister use it; `it’s hot enough to boil a monkey’s bum in here, Your Majesty’ he said, and she smiled quietly to herself.”

Anyway, the Queen is a lovely lady. Long live the Queen.

LBJ and the Queen did meet.
LBJ - “I’m right glad you came down here to go swimming. As you can see, I like to swim nekkid. What are you looking at? Yeah, it is a big one isn’t it. I call it THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT.”
“For goodness sakes, Lyndon, put on some clothes and we won’t tell everyone that it really should be called LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE.”
