London - (Ass Mess): Prince Philip has visited the charred remains of the Cutty Sark today and told reporters he is gutted by reports that the former clipper may now be scuttled and the remains sold off as barbecue fuel.
"Sold orf? YOU sod orf," he told reporters at Greenwich dry dock today.
A Palace spokesman later said:
"The Duke takes a close interest in hysteric ships.
"As Cutty Sark Trust president he had hoped to be aboard when the refurbished clipper makes its return voyage back to Juneau in Alaska where it once ran reconaissance missions keeping tabs of 19th century Corrupt Bastards Club forefathers.
"Obviously that is now unlikely."
Police meanwhile continued to probe reports that the Corrupt Bastards Club trashed and burnt the boat after failing to completely wreck an Alaskan paddlewehhel cruiser, the Empress of the North, off Juneau last week.
