A sponger has called another sponger a sponger in a Royal sponger scandal. Phil the Greek-famous for marrying the Queen- branded Simon Foul a sponger. Mr Foul- famous for finding people with talent and then milking them for cash- was unhurt by the accusation. A spokesperson for Mr Foul said "Publicity. Fab. Thanks your Highness."
Phil the Greek comes from an entire family of spongers. They regularly soak up the nation's wealth and then wave cheerily to the subjects. The family claim that the nation would be lost without them and that tourists would go elsewhere.
Mr Foul believes that ITV would be lost without him and that viewers would go elsewhere.
The Palace has denied that Phil made the remark. "Someone asked him what he would like to do to the Queen later. He said 'sponge her'. He loves giving her a sponge" said John Cole, a spokesperson.
The public may well react badly to the argument. One is a member of a powerful dynasty, Royalty much loved by the nation. The other is an old Greek chap who married the Queen.
