There ... Yugo

by Albino Neutrino

"Millions of people complain that Ms. Parker Bowles has a ring like a fossilized Yukka plant. But they don't know what Charles' first idea was for a big 'let's get marred, durling' present. He wanted to present her with a shiny new Fiat Yugo, fresh from the factory. Camilla, however, said that might this might be a little bit tasteless, between huge yelping laughs, as she nearly choked on a hard boiled egg.

Charles was very confused by this. He only wanted to present the car and say 'There ... Yugo'. Charles is a man of few jokes and he'd been working on this one for years, so he was sorry that he never got the opportunity to use it. He never really did understand what all the fuss was about. That's 'fuss' in the general sense, not the particular."
