Quote
Convicted criminals will be put to work cleaning up a central London Underground (Tube) station to make it sparkle for the April 29 royal wedding, it was announced Monday.

Westminster City Council said it had hired eight convicts - all of whom have chosen to do community work in preference to serving a jail term - to scrub clean the five pedestrian tunnels and entrances to Hyde Park Corner station.

A spokesman said the men had all been sentenced for minor offences, and had undergone background checks.

The centrally-located station is likely to be used by tens of thousands of spectators expected to line the streets along the route of the wedding procession of Prince William and Kate Middleton from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace.

Not a bad idea, but I'm still a little leery on using convict labor.

I hope just from the wedding party hall-whistle

Wouldn't it be hilarious if Wills just disappeared a week before the big day, only to pop up a day after the wedding saying something like: "euhm oops, I overslept a little! sorry! it was a rough bachelor party... hall-whistle"

Kate's explosion would make Hiroshima and Nagasaki look like a small bonfire.

If WIlliam ran off with one of the strippers and married the stripper, HM would literally implode into psychosis and Kate would, well, we both know since I already described the reaction of William just ran off.

So the Middletons are coming by Tube to the Abbey?  There's no reason to clean up Westminster station - I can't quite see the Glass Coach and the four horses (of the Apocalypse?) going down the escalator!
