Princess Di Action Doll!

Tue Jan 31, 2006 3:29 am



A US firm is launching a talking 12ins Princess Diana action doll. The tasteless tribute says 16 phrases in Diana's voice at the press of a button. They include: "I'd like to be a queen of people's hearts" and "I want to do good things".
The £18 doll is being marketed as a one-off "collectible" with just 10,000 being made.
Texas-based Time Capsule Toys say they are dedicated to "the highest quality" products. However, they failed to get Diana's title right, referring to her as the "Princess of Whales".

Princess of Whales

Everyone knows that the Princess of Whales is that cow Camilla.
Hypocrisy. It's the new black for liberals.

Damn, that's despicable. Diana was one of the prettiest women in the world....and that doll comes nowhere close to her real image.

How embarassing that it comes from a Texas company, my apologies to all our British friends.

Dude, I was making a play on words - Whale (a big blubbery animal) versus Wales (a region of England).

Lay off the coffee.

Is there a source for this? I would suggest that the cut-and-paste above seems to be a copyright violation.

'Just 10,000?'

I'm assuming this is a joke.

He thinks I always use quotation marks for that line, because Scotland is not England's north. In fact there's another, better reason for that.  Wink

Ah I got ya  Wink LOL!

As for the issue of "POPE" stating that Wales was a region of England.. I suggest he shouts that out in any town, village or city in Wales and see what the response is!
