Princess Bloggess

by Telling Dad on October 30, 2009

bloggess2I’m a huge fan of The Bloggess and she’s actually been quite influential in my short little blogging career. She’s one of the few who can use profanity effectively as I mention in my “F-Bomb Free” pledge.

Yesterday she wrote an open letter to the king of Germany (yeah, not sure he exists) about a German princess who is either mocking her, or at the very least, impersonating her.

For the following clip to make sense, you’ll want to read her princess post first. Otherwise you’ll be completely lost. It also helps if you know a bit of her history. :)

Seriously though, you’ll be totally confused if you watch this first and THEN read her post. She’s funny, for real, so it won’t be a wasted trip. Head on over there and check it out…I’ll be here when you’re done.

Did you read it? Are you incensed by the royal princess’ audacity?

What follows is just a parody of the situation using a clip from a German movie that has been making some rounds on YouTube. It’s an homage of sorts to The Bloggess and totally made in jest.

An open letter to the King of Germany who might actually only be a Prince. I didn’t really research it. But we’re at war now so you’ll probably hear about it on the news. —

Megan (Best of Fates May 21, 2010 at 8:48 am

I recently read that YouTube is pulling down lots of the videos using that film as a base, which makes me weep inside, as they're the top echelon of YouTube videos – yours especially.


Janis @ Sneak Peek A June 6, 2010 at 5:20 am

I will have to talk with you later. I am heading straight to the hospital to have my sides stitched back together. I thought I would die while I was reading the princess post and THEN I watched the video. OMG…I have a headache….lol


Tracy August 20, 2011 at 9:27 am

I know I’m very late finding this, but I thought you should know it is unbelieveably fabulous. Also the thing about your dog mistaking your rug for a toilet. The picture of you with kleenex nose plugs finished me. Thanks for the laughs.


hogsatemysister October 3, 2011 at 1:30 am

Well done.

And you pulled it off without EVER mentioning the war.

Everyone in the Fatherland is pleased.

Except for the curlers thing.

For that, you and der Bloggess must die.


Sarah December 15, 2011 at 6:31 pm

Incredible. Cracking up! So glad you put the links up on your Perry post.
