Stop grabbing the Queen’s nuts

This is too funny for words.

Well, actually, it’s funny enough for words

The Queen was “furious” after royal protection officers helped themselves to Bombay mix and nuts left out for her around Buckingham Palace, a court heard today.

Palace officials sent a memo to royal protection officers warning them to “keep their sticky fingers out”, after Her Majesty noticed the snacks were disappearing, jurors at the Old Bailey were told.

The Queen became so incensed that she even began marking the bowls to check if the levels were dropping, it was suggested.

Imagine that.  Someone as rich and powerful as that, and she keeps having  her nuts pilfered by the Fuzz.  

Mr Edis said: “They were all being scoffed by police. That irritated Her Majesty apparently.”

In the email, which was sent by Mr Goodman in 2005, he wrote: “The Queen is furious about police stealing bowls of nuts and nibbles left out for her in the apartments in the BP [Buckingham Palace] Queen’s corridor.

“She has a very savoury tooth and staff leave out cashews, Bombay mix, almonds Etc. Prob is that police on patrol eat the lot.

“Queen is no narked she started marking the bowls to see when the levels dipped. Memo now gone around to all palace cops telling them to keep their sticky fingers out.”

As laughter broke out among jurors, the judge, Mr Justice Saunders quipped: “These are unproven allegations.”

Geez.  Liz can’t even catch a break from the legal system.
