"Where is Princess Snow White?", asked the Russian guests at the opening of Daisy's Wild Swans costume exhibit. "Ah, this honourable visitor must be mother! Certainly with skin that porcelain-like, delicate lady in portrait does not venture out into elements to do things mundane like travel. So, this person who came, she is artist? Nyet? Where is artist? Ah, yes, queen of Denmark. That is fragile morsel of femininity in portrait, no? No? Who is that lady, and what artistic finery does she allow her fine fingers to engage in periodically so as not to ruin them? Nothing? This cannot be. So, neither Princess Virginal Godly Thoughts in portrait and this caretaker's daughter thinggie flat as board who came is artist? Where is this queenly creator and why has she been substituted with lower rank secretary? Is this formal declaration of war by Denmark? This is MOST undiplomatic!"
