In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “I Pledge Allegiance.”
George has been sitting by the computer all weekend doing nothing so I decided to interview him for today’s Daily Prompt.
“George, do you feel patriotic?”
“I am both the past and future King of England and the current prince of England,” he says, giving no attention to how different he looks from pictures of His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge. “I was made in China, shipped to the United States of Captain America and now I live in a place called Canada.”
“Yes, but do you feel patriotic?”
“You’re asking me about patriotism? Well I don’t feel patriotic to one particular country unless the former British Empire in all of its glory counts as a country. But that is not right now and I don’t want to go back in time to a world without air conditioning and the Big Green Egg in the backyard where I can roast marshmallows.”
Dictionary.com defines patriotism as “devoted love, support, and defense of one’s country” but George would like to change that definition to the “devoted love, support, and defense of world’s greatest dessert: pudding”.
When asked why, George was quoted as saying, “Pudding crosses no boundaries. It is soft and warm and smooth and delicious and everyone, everywhere, should be able to experience it without fear or regret.” He adds that as far as he knows, pudding has not caused any wars, unlike pigs who cause trouble everywhere. “Don’t believe me?
