Royal wedding fever has taken hold of everyone on both sides of the pond - but perhaps none moreso than a plumber from England named Barmy Baz Franks. Barmy recently spent £1,000 and six hours in a dentist’s chair getting Prince William and Kate Middleton’s faces tattooed on his teeth!
Remember when we told you all about teeth tatoos earlier? Well these are a little bit different. Crafted by Dr Neil Gerrard, of the Clifton Dental Studio in Bristol, the images were painted on by hand using ultra-fine brushes and stencils. The ‘gnasher tats’ (oh you wacky Brits) will last about three months depending on how thoroughly Barmy brushes.
”I love the Royal Family and this was my way of lending my support to their Big Day.” says Franks. How sweet.
This dude is never getting laid again.

Okay, this is just getting silly now. First there was the Prince William and Kate Middleton condoms from Crown Jewels, and now there’s a freakin’ wedding souvenir refrigerator distributed by GE! Who in their right mind would spend their hard-earned money on this monstrosity?

No matter what you think of the Royal Family—I mostly see them as parasites, myself—this is an admirable gesture for a future king. Prince WIlliam joined Seyi Obakin, CEO of the Centrepoint charity, bedding down between garbage tips near Blackfriars bridge so he could better understand the plight of the homeless. Clearly William seems to be taking after his mother, unlike his brother, the ginger twat. From the Telegraph:
Writing on the Centrepoint website [Obatkin] added: ‘‘For me, it was a scary experience. Out of my comfortable bed. Out there in the elements. Out there on an extremely cold night, with temperatures down to minus 4.
‘‘And it was the same for Prince William. But he was determined to do it as [Centrepoint] patron in order to raise awareness of the problem and to be able to understand a little better what rough sleepers go through night after night.’‘
Earlier in the year, Centrepoint’s chief executive challenged the Prince to experience being homeless for one night and Mr Obakin said he did not think the royal would pick up the gauntlet.
The offer came after the Prince, 27, in a speech to mark Centrepoint’s 40th anniversary this year, challenged the organisation to redouble its efforts to end youth homelessness.
The pair were joined on the sleep-out by William’s private secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, and bedded down on cardboard boxes in an alleyway just after midnight last Wednesday.
In a grainy photograph released by the homeless charity, the Prince, dressed in jeans, trainers, a hooded top and a hat, can be seen standing next to Mr Obakin with their bedding around them.
The chief executive wrote on his charity’s website: “We took as much precaution as possible - finding a relatively secluded spot in an alleyway, shielded partly by a collection of wheelie bins.
“But there was no shielding from the bitter cold, or the hard concrete floor, or the fear of being accosted by drug dealers, pimps or those out to give homeless people a ‘good kicking’.
“One of the hairiest moments occurred when we were almost run over by a road sweeper which simply didn’t see our small group huddled together, which just goes to show how vulnerable rough sleepers are.
