WASHINGTON - The Rev. Al Sharpton announced Friday that he will lead a national "Lets Bomb England day" in 100 cities this weekend in protest at what he claims is the British Royal Families blatant naming the future King after Floridian stand your ground neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman.

Zimmerman's acquittal earlier this month in the shooting death of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin has touched off protests around the country.

"People all across the country will gather to show that we are not having those damn British naming babies after Zimmerman. This is a another slap in the face for justice," Sharpton said as he announced the plan.

The rallies and vigils will occur in front of British businesses, including well known Scottish burger chain MacDonald's and car showrooms that sell Mini Coopers.

Sharpton admits though that he is hopeful that Prince William will maybe pick up the tweet he sent - asking that maybe he and his wife consider another name. "I believe the Brits should stay out of this - so I have asked they chose a more suitable name - maybe something less controversial, like Al, perhaps."

Sharpton says that he hopes, should Prince William ignore his tweeted requested, that the US will start bombing the UK immediately, starting with Dublin and then Paris.

A six-member jury acquitted Zimmerman of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges.

A Buckingham Palace spokesperson responded to Sharpton's demands by saying "What on God's green earth is this man talking about and who the bugger is he?"
