Prince William Bags a Bird

And no, The Crown Regent didn't hook up with "a hot little number named Effie." That's not "the bird" we were talking about. Were talking pheasant and partridge, people, please get your mind out of the gutter! According to Hello!Magazine:

"Fresh from a busy weekend of Christmas festivities with the members of the royal family, Prince William got in a little sport on Monday at Sandringham. Accompanied by Harry, and uncles Andrew and Edward, the 22-year-old royal looked quite the country gentlemen in a hunting cap and shooting jacket as he joined a shooting party on the grounds of the Queen�s Norfolk estate. Wills seems to have proved himself a natural sportsman, expertly controlling his Labrador hunting dog by whistle and bagging a brace of pheasants and a partridge."

The Corsair doesn't know why he found this story compelling enough to post. Perhaps a colonial complex? Slow news week? Perhaps the irony of worldly sophistication the next-in-line electing to engage in a "red state" activity?
