In a satire piece that appeared in the Humor section of the New Yorker magazine on October 29, writer Andy Borowitz submitted a terrific article titled "Queen Offers to Restore British Rule Over United States".

The following is from the Borowitz Report:

LONDON (The Borowitz Report)—In an unexpected televised address on Saturday, Queen Elizabeth II offered to restore British rule over the United States of America.

Addressing the American people from her office in Buckingham Palace, the Queen said that she was making the offer “in recognition of the desperate situation you now find yourselves in.”

“This two-hundred-and-forty-year experiment in self-rule began with the best of intentions, but I think we can all agree that it didn’t end well,” she said.

The Queen urged Americans to write in her name on Election Day, after which the transition to British rule could begin “with a minimum of bother.”

Elizabeth acknowledged that, in the wake of Brexit, Americans might justifiably be alarmed about being governed by the British parliamentary system, but she reassured them, “Parliament would play no role in this deal. This would be an old-school monarchy. Just me, and then, assuming you’d rather not have Charles, we could go straight to William and those children of his who have mesmerized you so.”

Using the closing moments of her speech to tout her credentials, the Queen made it clear that she has never used e-mail and has only had sex with one person “very occasionally.”

Be careful, be very careful: next time you fly b ack to the U.S.A. you will be coming home to a ch ...

The last time my wife and I were in the US was for 3 weeks in 2011 to be at my father's bedside and his funeral.  We don't have any plans to return anytime soon.

The internet is my only source of US news, albeit skewed and opinionated as it is.  I've witnessed the changes from abroad.  I believe, regardless of the outcome of the US presidential election, there will some significant changes, not only in government and policies, but with society as well... not necessarily for the better.
