Is That My Great Grandmother?

First this is not a post about President and Mrs. Obama, they just happen to be in the picture. As a matter of fact, they are the reason this picture was even taken.

Secondly, the only copyright tag I found for this picture is REUTERS/John Stillwell/Pool (BRITAIN BUSINESS POLITICS ROYALS) so I hope I am giving the proper credit so I don't get in trouble for copyright infringement.

If you live in America and listen to any type of radio, TV, anything that might talk about current events, I'm sure you know that President Obama is at the G20 Summit in London. As part of this event, he and Mrs. Obama visited with Queen Elizabeth at her home, Buckingham Palace. And of course, to appease the masses, there were photos taken of this historic event.

Look at the picture below. Aren't they all lovely? Each smiling for the camera, just like they all rehearsed. No really it is a lovely picture. I would not disrespect the President or Queen by making fun of them. BUT this picture does make me laugh. Can you figure out what it is? If you know my grandmother or knew my great grandmother, you should easily figure this one out.

Do you get it, do you see what is making me laugh?

OK, I'll give - They are in Buckingham Palace, Queen Elizabeth's home. So please tell me, why does she need her purse in the picture?! Hahah,heehee, hoho! I am so sorry but that just tickles my funny bone!
