image for Isle of Wight Renamed
Prince Philip's Cock Up

The Queen has graciously accepted the invitation of the Chairman of the Isle of Wight Tourist Board to rename the island as the Isle of Plight. Another suggestion of the Isle of Flight got stuck somewhere near Cows so could not be used.

Unfortunately the Queen has had to wait in a traffic jam on the island on the way to the renaming so Prince Charles, who had caused problems by going to Newport in Wales, rather than Newport on the Isle of Wight, told the Royal TV site that changing names would not save the planet from his reign.

Prince Philip sailed into Cows to avoid the traffic jams so was able to take the Queen's place at the renaming ceremony.

The island is now officially named Out of Sight, due to a rainstorm that resulted in Philip being unable to read his announcement - he simply told his entourage that the words on his scrpt were Out of Sight and the island was thus renamed to the boos of thousands who had come to the Island to hear the singer formerly known as Prince.

Make j.w.'s day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
