Prince Philip: Jerk

Every family, office, class, association has it loud mouth disaster that can't learn to think for 3 seconds before uttering something stupid or offensive.
The United Kingdom got one of those, his name is Prince Philip.

The latest incident occurred while honoring a blind British soldier injured during a bombing attack. The queen asked the soldier if he had any of his vision left. Prince Philip, next to her, answered, "Not a lot, judging by the tie he's wearing"

Other gaffes:
- While accepting a gift from a Kenyan woman, he asked her, "You are a woman, aren't you?"

- He was visiting a school and a 13-year old boy told him he wanted to become an astronaut. Philip answered him, "Well, you'll never fly in it, you're too fat to be an astronaut."

- Being with a British student, the student told Philip that he had just returned from Papua New Guinea, to which Philip responded, "You managed not to get eaten then?"

Very funny, but a jerk. We love those.

Actually, I'm quite impressed that he even notices the "little people" enough to come up with such quips! He must be pretty bored :o

Here's one you missed:
To a British student in China he said: "If you stay here much longer, you will go home with slitty eyes."

It's in abook called the "Duke of Hazard: The Wit and Wisdom of Prince Philip"

I hear he's part Greek which explains things...maybe

Oh come on! He's British Royalty.. thus, normal people like us aren't supposed to understand his humour.

I met him when the Queen visited our university back in the days, and there was a big crowd of students gathered to meet the Royales (sic), and I remember the Queen being very royal, but the Prince.. hmmm.. he asked us what we were doing here instead of studying!!
