Word from Buckingham Palace this morning that when news of a recent poll showing that 53% of Canadians favour dropping the monarchy was revealed to the Queen of Canada she called up her new buddy George.

Here now is the transcript of that conversation.

(sound of telephone ringing)

W: Yup.

ER II: Oh, hullo George.

W: Hey, Queenie! How's it hanging?

ER II: We don't do that here George; here we make people go on Big Brother until they die of humiliation.

W: Oh yeah, I forgot. Hey, by the way, sorry again for ripping up your roses when we visited...

ER II: We planted new ones, and they're beautiful.

W: ...and ripping up the rugs, drilling through your walls, oh, and punching the hole in that painting...

ER II: Rugs can be repaired, holes can be filled, and it turns out the painting wasn't a Rubens at all, which we would never have known if your Secret Service hadn't been playing baseball indoors.

W: ...and that slip about your age when you were here?

ER II: Oh, I've forgotten all about that. Besides, today I feel nearly three hundred years old.

W: Problems, Queenie?

ER II: (sigh) Yes. I'm afraid Canada doesn't want me anymore.

W: You mean...?

ER II: Yes George.

W: Cool! Now I get to try out the new Invade-a-tron 3000 the Pentagon developed.

ER II: Happy Christmas, George.
