Regarding William and the Boob: Are The Sun’s Pants on Fire?

If Prince William goosing the sun-kissed mammary of a Brazilian babe wasn't salacious enough, you can count on The Sun to make mountains out of a pair of very pretty molehills. The Sun "quotes" international "relations" student Ana Ferreira, who "commented" on the photo taken in a bar:

"I was a little bit drunk myself but felt something brush my breast.

"I thought it couldn't be the future king – but now I've seen the picture it's no wonder he has a smile on his face! He has big manly hands and certainly knows what to do with them."

Funny, that Ana girl sounds just like a smutty Sun reporter. Either this 18-year-old has a real future in tabloid journalism, or writer Jamie Pyatt needs to learn not to break character when putting words in someone's mouth.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
