I’m dying right now, you guys. Prince William and Kate Middleton ate food on Day 4 of their Royal Tour of Canada (September 27). But not just any food, phallic-looking food. And they made comments. And I’m giggling like a 12 year old boy right now. UPDATE: I have updated this post with the rest […]
