That's right, kid, don't make eye contact. Sociopaths take that as an invitation to engage. Look at how Mary tries to elongate the man hands. The Margot Fonteyn treatment never works on her!
So Mary attends her annual "Yay, kids love me (when I hand out medals that force smiles out of them while in my camera shot)!" anti-bullying festival in Fælledpark sponsored by the Mary Fund and Save the Children dragging her Aussie-oriented purple teddy bear buddy with her since the real patronage here is the Australian Alannah and Madeline Foundation. Denmark's for losers.
Madam's attempts at giving every child a medal for "participating" kinda is going to backfire in really crappy ways, since it does nothing to distinguish the children or reward truly special or beyond the norm achievements. Typical for Mary to think that if we were all just alike and had no special traits that we'll all be ok: this is the thinking of a mediocre mind who is afraid of being called out for her own lack of ability or charm. Leave it to Mary to want to put everyone into a small brown box with a manic smile and organisation straight out of the Politboro.
The next day, Mary leaves for a lightweight visit to Greenland for two days of shoving this anti-bullying crap down the throats of those poor children. Sorry, bullying is not high on the list of their concerns. Let's try love, security, social mobility instead. Alcoholism is a major problem, as is global warming (it's ruining their livlihoods off the land) and lack of activity centres and employment opportunities. Leave it to Mary to gloss over major problems and to create issues where there are none and not even bother to try to get Denmark's business and cultural elite to create more opportunities for employment and creative distraction. It's all about MoreMore and her prop camera to be photographed for Aussie media (plus maybe a little PR packet for Kate Middleton - looker me, bitch!).

Nice sports bra, Mary. Really, two different white polo necks within 24 hours?
I am so whistful and poetic. Prince Charles would appreciate me now. Why aren't I at the Jubilee of the real queen instead of on this %&$ ice flow?
Are you getting this? My camera is really expensive and I just love to be artistic. Did I mention that this camera cost A LOT of money?
