  1. Bravo, after that appallingly bad book and worse cologne by the same name, Cumming is finally getting his due from of all people, the Princess Royal, who as Bette Midler said, loves nature despite what it did to her. One has taste after all, doesn't one?

  3. The tartan pattern is 'Hunting Cumming'. Oh, the merchandise one could create with that...

  4. A bit of a backhanded award. She's the Princess who everyone hates.

  6. He took over hosting mystery on pbs. Good for him. He can join alan greenspan. He's got a good personality, maybe...I mean, who knows except the guy he's fucking. But goodness he's hideous, and a bit obnoxious, too. Hopefully he makes up for that bagged lunch of a face with a big willy, as is usually the case.
