Highlights, interviews and analysis from Earth’s media
Photos of a royal prince without his clothes have been published around the planet. After partying the night away, the prince and a large entourage of friends and minders invited several women they had just met back to a VIP hotel suite in Las Vegas. Before long, there was some full-on partying within view of cell phone cameras. British newspapers published the photos despite warnings from the Royal Family’s lawyers that it would be an invasion of his privacy.

A palace spokesman said: “We have made our views on Prince Harry’s privacy known. Newspapers regulate themselves, so the publication of the photographs is ultimately a decision for editors to make. We have no further comment to make either on the publication of the photographs or on the story itself concerning Prince Harry’s private holiday in Las Vegas.”

polkingbeal67: On Earth, perhaps it’s normal to drink and end up naked. Personally, I don’t like to be seen without my full Morys Minor battle dress. I don’t even like to be seen naked in front of myself. It’s disgraceful. I think all the newspapers that published the photos should be compelled to display nothing but pictures of churches for the rest of the year.
smolin9: These things happen, I suppose. Earthlings have published photos of me without my Bermuda shorts.
polkingbeal67: Yes, but you’re not royalty. It puts me in mind of the Earthlings’ fairy tale about the vain emperor who buys magic clothes from swindling weavers. They convince him the material is invisible to stupid people. Obviously, the clothes don’t really exist, but the emperor doesn’t want to appear stupid, so he goes out naked. Everyone else pretends to see the clothes too, until a child shouts, “The Emperor has no clothes on!”
smolin9: Is there a point to all that?
polkingbeal67: I don’t know. I think it’s something to do with weavers?
smolin9: Yeh, I think you lost the thread. I don’t know about you, p, but I was always unsure how to dress for these MMBC Earthwatch appearances. I settled for the T-shirt in the end, but actually I think it would have been sensible to wear a tie.
polkingbeal67: Why?
smolin9: Well, for one thing, I’d know if I was upside down.
polkingbeal67: What? Well, why aren’t you wearing a tie? Haven’t you got one?
smolin9: Yes, I bought one, but I had to take it back to the shop.
polkingbeal67: Why?
smolin9: It was too tight.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
