A HORSE NAMED CAMILLA

Warning:
the humorless and ultra-sensitive should leave now.

Fresh off the press, here's my latest YouTube video (which I just completed minutes ago).

Full-screen viewing is best
   
Let me preface this by saying that I generally don't like to make fun of people's looks - and I have always been extremely self-conscious about my own looks (even though I'm gorgeous).

When you're in the public eye, however, you're an open target for ridicule. And let's face it - Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall - deserves what she gets. After all, she's the tramp who helped destroy the marriage of Princess Diana. She did it enthusiastically and has no regrets.

Well, I have no regrets about making this video. Besides, ol' Camilla is probably the most unphotogenic woman on earth. Her photos are a never-ending source of unintentional humor.

One more thing, while I'm on a roll:
if you find this video offensive, lighten up. Just wait until you see the video I plan to make for Hillary (am I serious?)



Hee-Haw!
Kisses, Jon

    2. OMB! I have never heard this song's version; tiny tim is "tiptoe through the tulips" with his miss vicki. and that clueless pix of charles at the end - bwhahahahahaha!

      ya know, if charles had been allowed to marry the horse instead of diana...wonder how different things might have been. thank the dogs and cats diana's kids are smarter than their dipshit father.

    3. That photo of Charles (at the end) scared the shit out of me - - I couldn't resist using it. I wonder if it was digitally tampered with, or is he really that hideous??

      Delete
    4. he's THAT hideous; it's the inbreeding.

  2. Now I know I love you even more!!!! I never cared for Camilla Parker Bowles. The video had me rolling!!!!! I am not mean, but back in the drag days, I could get very Lisa Lampanelli or Don Rickles when it came time for comedy. Or even now, when loud mouth people can't get off their phones in shops!!!!! I have however wondered what stable they keep Camilla in?

    1. I hadn't actually planned on doing this, but last night I happened to see some photos of Camilla on the Internet and they were absolutely hilarious. I thought they'd go perfectly with Tiny Tim's version of Mr. Ed.

  3. LOVE the song. I remember MR. ED and Wilbur from TV. As for Camilla she got the guy, though heaven only knows why? Sad that Princess Dianna is no longer with us. She was a lovely lady.

    1. I love the song, too. And I decided to use the Tiny Tim version because it's longer than the TV original.

  4. Your video cracks me up. I always wondered what Prince Charles seen in her after having a beautiful wife like Princess Dianna, and another thing I always wondered what Princess Dianna seen in Charles. Now I need to go get some sleep.

    1. I think Charles and Camilla were made for each other. It's after 3:00 a.m. here and I should get some sleep, too. Pleasant dreams!

  5. You are gorgeous, Jon, especially compared with that horsey thing.
    Thanks for the giggle!

      Are you, by any chance, Rose from Canada? I think you are, and I want to thank you very much for your recent email. I haven't been writing any emails for a long time but I will eventually answer you. Rake care and keep in touch!

    2. Of course I mean to say TAKE care, not RAKE care...

    3. Sorry, mate, but I'm an Aussie Rose.

    4. Well, I'm glad to have an Aussie on board!
      Canadian Rose told me that she had unsuccessfully tried to leave an anonymous comment on my blog, so I thought she finally succeeded.

  6. Ah, the lovely - and fragrant (I'm sure) - Camilla, our Queen-in-Waiting-too-long (for her!).
    I think she might enjoy your effort, Jon, while she watches while munching on the breakfast oats from her nosebag.

    Btw: Tiny Tim? That takes me back. It must have been back in 67 or 68 that I nominated him in one of the Pop newspaper polls as 'Discovery' of that year - and with NO intended irony! He didn't win.

    1. Good heavens, I truly hope Camilla never becomes Queen. Let her stay in the stable with the other old nags.
      In retrospect, Tiny Tim was indeed a "discovery" - to say the least, he was certainly unique. I rather enjoy his singing.
      I hope you are on the road to recovery - - I know it's going to be difficult (and undoubtedly expensive). Hang in there and take care!

    2. I need blogs like this one to lift my mood, Jon, which has been unsurprisingly depressed of late. So you are performing a helpful function for me.

      At the time of Chuck's marriage to Camilla it was surmised that when he became King she would be given an honorary title which would reflect her enhanced status rather than be endowed with the ultimate 'Q'. It was felt then that that would be more acceptable to public opinion who still had fresh memories of Saint Diana. Recently, though, mood has shifted and I will now be rather more surprised if she is NOT given the ultimate accolade than otherwise. Then she can throw her reins and bridle in the air with a "Oh, Jolly hockey-sticks! I've finally made it!", and be able to count herself among the long list of fillies who've actually been ridden hard by a real King, while she closed her eyes and thought of England. - All mine!

  8. I believe Sarah Jessica Parker won the Kentucky Derby a few years back, by a nose. LOL !!! Camilla proves there is something beyond looks that draws two people together. Let your bad boy out for some fresh air, Jon. You have readers who won't get pissed off or run away screaming.

    1. If I ever let my TRUE bad boy out, there wouldn't be one reader left. I try to restrain myself...and I STILL lose readers....

    2. Jon, those aren't "readers". They are skimmers. I only call my internet friends "readers", and they don't chuck and run when the going gets tough. I'm here to stay. Just know I'm about the toughest broad you've ever had the misfortune to have as a fan. Anyone hurts my Jon, they've got me and whole damn trailer park to whip.

  11. Okay, not a Diana fan here. I suspect she married Charles to rocket herself out of obscurity. Then she couldn't handle living under a microscope as she hadn't been raised under one. Charles and Camilla had been an item long before Diana but much like the olden days, Camilla was not considered worthy to be married to the heir. At least he stayed true to his first love. She will never be queen but given some other title, just as Prince Philip could never be king. Charles isn't as stupid as people like to think but he does have some peculiar beliefs. As far as the boys go, I never bothered to follow their lives but they should handle fame better than their mother.

    1. If ol' Charles was so deeply in love with Camilla, he should have hung onto her like grim death, instead of taking the marriage vows and destroying the life of an innocent 19 year old. He used Diana solely to produce heirs (thank GOD she was good-looking) and then he dumped her for the Horse.

      I'm sure Diana was smitten by the prospect of someday being Queen - - but she married into a very dysfunctional, cold, self-absorbed family. And they were jealous of her popularity.

      Delete
    2. One more thing, while I'm on a roll - - I think there was too much of an age difference between Charles and Diana. Twelve years is quite a bit.
      Charles and Camilla are about the same age (I think), which makes them more suited to each other.

      Delete
  12. This is sooooo good, Jon! Funny, when I spotted your headline early this morning I made an immediate connection to THAT Camilla.
    But what an unkind comparison ... to the horse, that is.
    I agree, she and Charles deserve each other.
    I can't wait to watch this video when I'm home!

    1. Yup, it's best to watch it in the privacy of your home. It probably wouldn't exactly enhance a work environment.
      Camilla and the horse just seemed to connect....

  13. Excellent stuff ,and your take on the Diana/Camilla story in "comments" is what a lot of English people think (including me).
    There are plenty who feel (even now) that it is wrong to question the action of your "betters"!!
    Incidentally would it be possible for you to e mail me at some point .I cannot find your e mail address and have some questions re blogging if you do not mind.

    1. I used to email very frequently, but during the past year I hardly ever use it. I have to log in and out of too many different accounts and it's annoying. The best way to reach me is through my old AOL account at this email address:

      I'll look forward to hearing from you.

    Only Geo made a comment that was a bit different than the others, gently suggesting that looks might be not related to worth as a person. And no, I don't fine it 'offensive' in any extreme way, and sure, if your measure of a person is with looks is your lens, Hillary would do to be a fine subject. So would JFK, or FDR, or Harvey Milk, or RuPaul, or anyone you suggest, when you find the right photograph. The one people like, that fit's their image of the person. Helen Keller was not attractive, etc.

    I'm just concerned with the notion that looks are the primary evaluation we put on a person. If that is what it is, I don't have any further suggestions or opinion.

    Again, I'm not trying to be a issue here, just you and I have a different viewpoint on this issue perhaps, but that doesn't mean we can't communicate.

    Hope you're well, Tennessee weather is not too extreme. I'm back in Montana, and glad to be out of the heat of SoCal.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    1. I think Helen Keller and the others you mentioned were all nice looking - and I'm sorry that you feel they were not. I dislike Hillary for her CORRUPTION, not her looks.

      Delete
    2. As a person who has always been extremely self-conscious of his looks, and as someone who never judged people by their looks I can fully understand your concern about this issue. People in the public eye have always been targets for ridicule - which probably isn't fair, but it's a matter of fact.
      I don't make it a habit of ridiculing people, but once in awhile I find that humor is fun. I would hate to exist without it.

      Delete
    3. A person walking down the street, SFM, should not be ridiculed. But as a public figure, I'm sure Jon's remarks as well as half of Britain, doesn't bother Camilla one bit. She just holds onto her diamond tiara when she sticks her head in her feedbag like the rest of us.

    4. lotta joy, thank you for advise....I'll keep it in mind next month in London.

      Jon, as you know I have no, repeat no, wish to start any issue here, sometimes I forget myself in replying to another's post or opinion, and I overstep my boundary.
      In reading back your reply, no, I do not think any of those people were unattractive; rather I was suggesting that anyone, of any of the steps on the spectrum of 'attractive', could be photographed candidly in a way that is unflattering to them. What is shown, goes past the editors, was more to my point. Marilyn Monroe can be shown as a overweight middle aged woman, or a temptress singing to the President.

      That was all, friend.

      In a way, I'm very envious of you and your commenters/'followers'.....I don't see them often, but you have people that disagree or argue with you. Man, I wish I had that, that's fun! Seriously, in this internet/ethernet world, who knows what is real? When I chat with my neighbor about her idea of voting for Trump, I know who she is, what she does, where she came from.
      Here, in this imaginary world, we could be anyone, and having discussions that have no actually repercussions or even boundaries. Here, I could say, perhaps like one of our presidential candidates, the most outrageous things about you, or Geo, a common internet friend. The repercussions? None, if I choose not to check your column for the next month. None, if I delete Geo's emails without reading. It's not like we're living down the block from each other.

      So anyway, far beyond this subject of this comment thread, hope you're doing well.

      Mike

  17. Jon,
    I got some really nasty comments to my blog when I posted about horse faced Celine Dione. I don't usually mock someone's looks, especially after having grown up with my father constantly cruelly called me "beak" because of my big nose, but with people like Celine, who has more money (and talent) that I could ever dream of, I'm sure she can take my gentle mockery. As I'm sure Camilla can take yours. And she does LOVE horses.

    1. My father used to be cruel with his comments to me, too, and also one of my uncles was that way.
      I have never judged people by their looks and I truly don't like to make fun of them. But I did think that my Camilla video is hilarious. I just wish people would crack a smile now and then and lighten up.

      I'm going to send you a card, but I couldn't put it in my mailbox for the mail carrier to pick it up because of all the rain. It would have gotten soaked. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny so I'll try to mail it then.

I love comments. Go ahead and leave one - I won't bite. But make sure you have a rabies shot just in case.
