New takes on recent events.
1. The Royal Wedding.
Remember how you were saying to yourself as you watched the royal wedding, how some of the main players looked looked naturally – but also strangely – familiar? This is why.
It’s also one of the reasons you should subscribe to or buy Private Eye magazine. The availability of which is one of the benefits of living in the UK. (No censor cutting out politically inconvenient stories as it passes through customs.) The lookalike photos were sent in by readers.
2. The bumping off of Osama bin Laden.
This is one for Thurber fans.
You can find the Private Eye website here. But there’s much more in the print version.
Neither of the images here are on the official website, hence the poor quality photographs by me. If you’re in India or the USA, the print edition may not be handy – so think of it as prosletysing and a public service.
