Oops! Royal wedding mug

Post by EC2 » Thu March 17th, 2011, 11:31 am

I have just had a coffee splork moment at this mug advert. I don't know how long the url will stay active though! http://www.guandongenterprisesltd.com/

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

Does Kate know she's now marrying Harry?? :D Mind you, he does sound a lot of fun!! She can't, though, as my daughter has her eyes on him. ;)
