"How different from the home life of our own dear Queen"

Post by carl01 » Fri Apr 22, 2016 10:42 am

Anyone know where this saying came from? At least I presume it's a quotation from somewhere as Wayne seems to utter it out of context (and out of character).
I suppose I could look it up on the internet, but where's the fun in that?
From now on I'm sticking to a worse type of bird.

They were pretty well-read fellas I think. 'Home Thoughts from Abroad' is a poem by Browning.
