Thousands of people may have gathered along the River Thames in London yesterday to watch Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee River Pageant and a healthy number took to Twitter, as well, to have some fun tweeting about celebrations marking the Queen’s 60 years as monarch, causing #Jubilee to become a trending topic on the microblogging site.
While many tweets reflected on the rainy weather in London yesterday and the festive air surrounding the pageant, here are a few of the chuckle-inducing tweets that poured into the #Jubilee stream:
"Dear London, I have just travelled from the South Bank to Camden and can safely say, you are drunk."
"I’m completely off my face on crumpets."
"I’d pay £10,000 to see Philip and Her Majesty do the Jack and Rose Titanic bow scene at the front of their barge."
"Looks like the royal barge would serve great Thai food."
"’We’re British! The rain didn’t dampen our spirits!’ Maybe not, but the bloody pneumonia will."
"Jubilee song contained more corn than your average can from the Jolly Green Giant."
"DOES ANYONE HAVE A GAZEBO I CAN BORROW ON TUESDAY?"
"Outdoor events in England are never the best idea."
"Drinking tea out of a #jubilee mug I’ll have bored of tomorrow."
"Pics of people wearing ‘Thanks for the day off T-shirts’. Seriously?"
The Diamond Jubilee celebrations, which began on Saturday, wrap up tomorrow, 5 June.
