HRH Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh - My Fake Diary
Tuesday, 18 September 2012
Greek yogurt. On September 3, The Globe and Mail had this to say:
"You are attracted by its low-fat content and high protein. But what really seals the deal is the thick, creamy taste. You are in a full-blown relationship with Greek yogurt. And if you're not, chances are you soon will be, as consumption of the trendiest fermented milk product continues to skyrocket."
The Queen, Prince Philip and Prince Charles issue all kinds of royal "warrants" allowing certain firms to promote themselves as "official suppliers" of such items as gin, Wellington boots and Highland dress.
What's to stop our friends in Greece from doing the same?
Nothing, except that Greece is not a constitutional monarchy: it has a royal family, which is not recognized as such by the state.
I do grant that there is little traction to be gained by being an 'official supplier to the government of Greece, whoever it may be at the moment'.
Maybe the Greeks should ask Prince Philip, who has a Greek background, to name his own official supplier of Greek yogurt, if they can wait long enough behind the line-up of applicants to become official suppliers of swimwear to the Philip's grandsons!
Oh the wits!
