btransatlantic-So, Sir Walter, the new world lies at our feet. Have you given any thought, I wonder, as to what to call it?
-We shall name it, of course, after our beloved queen.
-Oh yes, of course, sorry, sir.
-Let it pass, and hail to this glorious land: Virginia!
-Why, the queen of England, you dog.
-Oh, right. Except... I don't know how to put this, but she's not called Virginia, is she? She's called Elizabeth.
-I'm well aware of that, but she is, I trust you will agree, a virgin.
-Uh, yeah, as far as I know. I mean, I'm sure she is. But do we really want to name a country after that fact?
-Well, why not?
-Well, it seems a bit rude!
-Rude? How so rude?
-Well, to other nations, bringing up the fact that our queen's never done it... seems a bit personal. They might not want to know.
