King Charles Becomes Irate Over Pens Once More

Published

Even The Royals appear to experience frustration with inanimate items, and King Charles III is obviously not an exception.

“Every Stinking Time”

The former Prince of Wales was observed getting angrier at a defective piece of paper at a recent signing ceremony, and this isn’t the first time.

The rage initially surfaced during a signing ceremony at Hillsborough Castle in Northern Ireland when Charles accidentally scribbled down the wrong date and had a pen kind of burst on him.

Charles and Camilla are both seen on the video seated at a table with documents in front of them, accompanied by a small group of staff members.

“Is it September 12th?” the 73-year-old asked.

“13th, sir,” one of his aides promptly responded.

To which the newly-appointed monarch reacted: “Oh God, I’ve put the wrong date down,” before confirming yet again which the correct date was, “Thirteen?”

The assistant responded, “Yes, sir.

Another adviser told the King, “You signed the 12th earlier.

King Charles stood up from his throne after some incomprehensible rambling and exclaimed, “Oh God, I hate this.”

Then, Queen Consort Camilla joins in on the fun.

The Consort remarked to her husband about the pen, which was now covered in ink, “Oh look, it’s going everywhere, hang on.”

Charles gets up when staff members hurry to help the couple and makes one last complaint to the stationary.

He started his tirade with, “I can’t bear this bloody thing!”

What they do, each and every time, the monarch said.

Charles rushed out of the room, and Camilla sat down on the seat and signed the papers.

This is the second time in recent memory that King Charles has lost his cool over a pen.

King Charles convened his first Privy Council meeting during his proclamation, where he formally announced himself as the country’s new sovereign and sat to sign official declarations.

The newly crowned King didn’t hold back when he expressed his annoyance about being a little cramped on his table.

Charles tried to sign the second document after signing the first when he was given two very large documents on a table that barely contained one, but a bothersome pen tray got in the way.

Pen Problems

To allow Charles more room on the table, an assistant motioned to a staff member to hastily remove the pen tray.

Since then, the response has gained popularity as a large number of Twitter users have flocked to comment on Charles’ gesturing.

In a comment, someone asked: “Why did Charles make such a strange gesture for them to remove his pen case, could he not just pass it and say, “Could you remove this please?” I guess a lifetime of servants does that to you.

The chaotic nature of the affair was noted by another user, who wrote: “They should have practised for this declaration King Charles wasn’t thrilled with that pen holder item being in his way,” adding with a laughing emoji.

Do you have pen problems too?

Trailer for PlayStation 5 Slim has Stunned Viewers

Published

Due to its unique design and detachable disc drive, a tiny PlayStation 5 prototype is making the rounds. According to a rumor from September, Sony plans to replace the current PS5 model on the market by releasing a third PS5 model in a year.

A Bit of a Difference

Before anyone begins gets head over heels for this, this new edition and the original only differ in that the latter has a detachable disc drive that connects to the console through an additional USB-C connector on the rear of the device.

More Features

Possibly, VR4Player.fr’s interpretation of what that might appear to be is much more fashionable. The idea reduces the size of the original design and divides the shell along a diagonal line where the removable disc drive would go. It also smooths down the PS5’s wavy edges and resembles a Tic-Tac in some ways.

The color-coded packaging for the small digital and disc drive versions would be ideal for errant parents in Christmas lines as long as far as the eye can see. And VR4Player.fr has the foresight to take that aforementioned intersection off the console, enabling the removable disc drive to be linked to a slim digital model.

People Continue Calling Their Kids By This Marvel Character

Let’s just hope they don’t turn out to be a fan of apocalyptic genocide.

Would you name your kids Thanos?

The first time I saw Avengers: Endgame was recent. I’m a little late, I know. But what a movie it is — its mere size is enough to impress even the pickiest movie critics, and it’s just a wonderful movie in general. But when I saw the credits roll, do you know what I didn’t think? “I’m going to name my firstborn Thanos,” the mother said.

But contrary to what you may assume, it seems that this is a more typical thought. According to ComicBook, a recent analysis by OrganicBabyFormula.com found that following the release of Avengers: Infinity War in 2018, the name “Thanos” has risen an astounding 2,892 spots on the Social Security Administration’s Name Popularity Index.

Other Disney-owned character names that have been influencing new parents’ name selections were also discovered in the same study.

Thanos is ninth on that list, with Quill coming in first (after Peter Quill from Guardians of the Galaxy) and Kristoff (from Frozen) coming in second.

The third place goes to Rey (hey, Star Wars), who is followed by Merida and Aladdin (do I really need to explain?). Loki and Wanda are two other Marvel-inspired names that have experienced a rise in popularity.

Frankly, I don’t get why Thanos is so popular here. In an interview with ComicBook earlier this year, the character’s creator, Jim Starlin, admitted that he had also been surprised by the popularity of the big, purple guy: “The fact that Thanos has gotten as big as he has, quite frankly, surprised the hell out of me because I always thought he was just too weird and esoteric and apparently wrong.” Because of this, I don’t produce movies.

I’d rather name my kids Tony or Steve actually.

Legal Action Over Cardi B’s Marge Simpson Halloween Outfit is Threatened

Published

In relation to her Marge Simpson Halloween costume, an Italian artist has threatened Cardi B with legal action.

Halloween and Legalities

On October 31, the rapper known by the stage name “Bodak Yellow,” Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, revealed her Halloween attire in an Instagram post.

In place of her customary green clothing, the Grammy-winning performer is seen in the images as the popular animated character wearing a 1995 Thierry Mugler black dress.

In her Instagram slideshow post, the mother of two also revealed the artwork that served as inspiration for her outfit. The piece of art was produced in 2013 as part of aleXsandro Palombo’s “Marge Simpson Style Icon” series, which was initially featured in Vogue UK.

The mother of two included Mugler in her caption but left Palombo out and untagged.

On Saturday, November 26, Palombo updated a post on Instagram to denounce the rapper and her use of his work.

The artist claimed that Cardi B and her associates “have used my artwork without any consent, degrading its original meaning and only to amplify their image with a clear commercial purpose that has nothing to do with that path of social awareness that has always characterised my works.”

Additionally, he asserted that he had previously written to Cardi B and her collaborators, photographer Jora Frantzis and stylist Kollin Carter, to explain why he hadn’t been contacted for permission to use his artwork.

We wrote to Mrs. Cardi B and her partners to ask why they hadn’t requested our permission to use the artwork and why they hadn’t acknowledged or given credit to the artist, in violation of Meta’s policy on intellectual property rights, he continued. Still no response.

Claudio Volpi, the attorney for Palombo, increased the level of the “appropriation” charges against his client’s creative work.

According to Volpi of Artnet News, “Cardi B has unlawfully hijacked the work of aleXsandro Palombo for purely commercial goals in violation of the most fundamental copyright and Instagram principles, with the accompanying substantial consequences, both of recompense and of dishonor for her public image.”

The attorney stated that after contacting Frantzis, Carter, and the Atlantic Records marketing team, he only heard back from Frantzis, who said she was “glad to add the credits” and wasn’t “known there was an artist behind this artwork.”

All parties concerned, including Atlantic Records chairman Craig Kallman, have received a formal notice, according to Volpi, requiring them to publish a “remedial” post with due credit to the artist within seven days of receiving it.

In the event that this demand is not fulfilled, Volpi threatened legal action, along with a demand for Palombo’s compensation.
