David Byrne enjoys a good plating

There was an episode of Starsky and Hutch which featured someone who collected deocrative plates, prompting Hutch (or maybe Starsky) to ask, genuinely bemused, "how do you eat off them if they're stuck to the wall?"

David Byrne knows the answer to this. Apparently he collects plates as a hobby:

“At breakfast my mother was eating off one of my commemorative plates — and she apologised quietly to the Queen Mum for putting bread on her face.”

She's lucky she's not British, David - that'd be treason, that would, as surely as setting fire to a naval dockyard.

Ahem. Arson in the royal dockyards ceased to be a specific offence (much less a capital one) in 1971. Oh, and high treason ceased to be a capital crime in 1998. Now, if you'll excuse me, my persnicketiness is needed elsewhere.

I think Mr Byrne has some Scottish ancestry and might quite enjoy eating eclair's off the face of the queen's dead mum if he was feeling a bit William Wallace...

Its because of people like you, Karl, that our lovely naval dockyards are smouldering ruins.

Emily... that's making me feel a little queasy...

Byrne was born in Dumbarton, so he has a little more than just Scots ancestry.

Though, I don't know if treason would include what you do to images of dead royals though. Might be a stretch that. Maybe if he dug the corpse up and ate confections on it that'd count?

See, now that's an image.
