Remember, you need that certificate of authenticity.

[tweetmeme source=”awindram” only_single=false] At the very reasonable price of $295 comes this … this … thing. Who wouldn’t want this … thing? I mean it comes with a certificate of authenticity so straight away you know its classiness.

What joy it was to see this on a commercial break on BBC America. My little patriotic heart was already swelling with pride at seeing BBCA was showing yet another episode of Top Gear, allowing me to have my fill of the gurning, global warming denying, racially insensitive, “it’s political correctness gone mad”,  pie-faced Jeremy Clarkson, but then this too! It was just too too much!  Disappointingly, the better half – damn Yankee – had seen fit to hide the credit card as soon as the commercial appeared on TV, otherwise I’d  have got my hands on a tiny, but ever so perfect version of the Duchess of Cambridge. This $295 … thing. Shame, I think it would look great alongside my 5th Doctor action figure.  

Other versions in the range include: Princess Beatrice complete with detachable parasitic baby Cthulhu hat; Queen Mother complete with detachable hip and copy of the Racing Post; Prince Harry (party variation) complete with swastika armband and bottle of WKD blue.
