"Oh, hahaha! What fun. We'll deal with this AT HOME, Fred. Hahaha! Fun day!"
So The Mary Fund has a new venture! Klubfidusen. It's a football game where all the kids have to hold hands. It shows them that teamwork and togetherness is the best thing ever and gets rid of bullying. AND, it allows Mary to bring Fred somewhat willingly (it is under the guise of sports, after all) and make him hold her hand for the demonstration game. The game that demonstrates for the naysayers that Mary and Fred ARE SO IN LOVE. See? What more proof do you want, already? Crikey!
"I look super cute in my Olympics jacket from Vancouver. You know who else has been to the Olympics? My soul sister Kate. I want her to see me in my own Olympics gear!"
"Don't mind him, he's just mad he couldn't get through Argentinian airline security recently with a tango lady folded up in his bag."
"I totally look like Kate doing her usual maniacal grin, don't I? We are like SISTERS."
Mary: "I said HERE, bitch. Stand here and look goddam loving, arright?"
"I look super contemplative here, I just know it. Like a warrior in repose! Like Diana of the Hunt! DIANA! It is all so symbiotic with me!"
"Shit. I should have made sure only the court photographer was here to ensure Photoshopping my complexion and roots."
"Sorry. This is the face I make when I can't understand Danish types."
"Now that play has stopped, Mary, I'll just take you by your one sausage finger."
"Get ready to be dragged and thrown all over the place, Mary. I'm still on my jet ski high!"
"Let's beat the crap out of them, Mary! I'm still smarting from my windsurfing disaster yesterday!"
"Fred, I told you. This isn't a real game, it's a photo shoot! Now look in love! With ME."
"Hands clasped so the cameras can see them, Fred!"
"This is SO reminiscent of Kate playing hockey just before going to hospital. The world press will see it immediately!"
"Whoopsie! Sorry kids! Had to get in an action shot to make my legs look long!"
"Yay! This seems to have gone off without anyone the wiser! Just the publicity I need before the Vietnamese State Visit tomorrow!"
"And that's the story of how you can lose everything that's important to you. So let me hear you! What's the moral of the story? That's right! Don't listen to your mother!"
Hm, Madam doesn't seem to command a whole lot of respect from the very children she purports to help, based on what the blond kid behind her is doing. It's like kharma is serving up a little dish based on Mary giving Felix the bunny ears treatment at the Hubertus Hunt a couple of years ago.
When kids screw up your message of Madam being so bloody wonderful by giving her bunny ears, then just have them throw up their hands in the air! Yeah, that's it! Everyone seems to think it means something fun. Go with it!
