Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Susan Sarandon and Pete Seeger are just a few of the famous folks who have already visited Occupy Wall Street. Now there's another famous face that will show itself in Zuccotti Park. The Face of Royalty.

Yep, that's right. Queen Elizabeth II in person.

Hoping that the place will be as clean as possible when she arrives, the Queen has asked her handlers to run through the crowds for a few hours before her planned visit, shouting (Paul Revere style), "The British Are Coming, The British Are Coming."

Her Majesty is also taking special precautions to deal with any unsanitary conditions. She plans to dress like a crime scene technician -- in disposable boots, gloves, and a spacesuit-like outfit. She'll be taking the unusual step of appearing in public without her purse and hat.

Ever hospitable, the Queen will be serving tea and crumpets to the protesters. She reportedly holds no grudge against Americans for staging the Boston Tea Party in 1773 and dumping all that British tea into Boston Harbor. "Let bygones be bygones," she has said.

As for post-Occupy Wall Street plans, the Queen has told her handlers to be sure and get her home "in time for a good scrub" before her next engagement.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
