Question Time: Ask the Oracle #3

Okay, most of these I can see.  Sadly, the question of her continued existence is all too germane (and it's not unkind, I think, at this point to wish her godspeed to a better place, however glamour-diminished a world she'll leave behind).  Of course, she is, in fact related, if only by marriage, to the tawdry sisters who wear a pale imitation of her crown of celebritude (she's their step great-grandmother, as nearly as I can make out).  And she is, at least in part on her mother's side, what dear Dame Edna calls a "Red Sea pedestrian."

But, really - pregnant?  The poor woman was born, even if we credit the latest possible date, in the fading glory of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.  Spare her something, for heaven's sake, in what the Enquirer would once have called her "sad last days."


  1. I remember something about her husband the prince wanting to get her pregnant to have an heir to carry on her name even though she has a daughter.

    I wouldn't put it past him to have done so or to have her cloned.

  2. is Muscato
    is moscato wine
    is moscato good
    is moscato a dry wine
    is moscato cheap wine

    1. Yes. No, but I do whine. Always. More a dry wit, don't you think? No, but definitely a cheap date.

      Now you know.
