Long Die The Queen!

There are a few ways in which royals differ from us. They throw great 60th anniversary parties, rose petals are sprinkled at their feet, they get recognized at Madison Square Garden, and Reggie Jackson tries to kill them in Los Angeles. There's another big difference:

Queen Elizabeth II's undertakers always keep a special coffin ready in case a member of the royal family dies suddenly abroad, the inquest into the death of Princess Diana heard Thursday. "We have what we call a 'first call coffin' which is used," he added.
I hope the "first call coffin" is not actually their first call in case of an emergency. I mean there should be at least some emergency button they press before it gets to that point.

Picturing the queen from 0:28 - 0:31 makes life worth living. Having an airtight coffin you can call into use makes life worth dying.

It's one thing to argue over who originally came up with the slogan for Charmin. It's another thing to argue over the actress who played the old woman in this ad. According to Wikipedia, several different women have come forward - and since died - stating that they are the fallen woman who couldn't get up.
