King Edward IX

Long live King Cheeter! (I think...)

What would you do if you were king or queen of your own country? What laws would you introduce and why?

If I were king of Moonland, I would make it compulsory to play one of my songs before every news broadcast. Why? Because my music rocks of course!

Suggestions can be funny or serious, but be creative! As an incentive, my favourite comment will win a GymGlish t-shirt and some other goodies!


His Royal Highness, King Edward IX

If I were the King of France, I would probably forbid "reality TV" because I wouldn't like that my people be stupid and ignorant. I would begin my reign with a great cultural revolution, and to make sure that my people follow me in this project, I would make print my quotations and the basics of the revolution in a "Litte Red Book". Dammit, I've just read that a man named Mao Zedung had already had this idea in 1966! Apparently, it didn't work very well. Whatever, it would be a real challenge after all!

Is there something rotten in the Kingdom of... Cheeter ?

I suggest people work on Sundays, but only on Sundays! 6 days a week to celebrate your Grace, King Edward IX, and one day working (it's enough, isnt't it ?)

This country is different, but not like Spain! Singing is required when wake up, pick up on bar is a subject on University.... Fantastic
First law must be singing Phillip Cheeter King anthem, of course

Wow! There are some talented kings and queens out there!

@ana: Quick correction: First law 'would' (not 'should') be..., 'Jail' (=prison) to corrupted governors. Nice laws, should make for a better society!
@Bart Boisson. Interesting idea about banning reality TV. The rest was a bit clever for me - I've only got one A-level in pottery remember!
@Malvaud. I like all the references to Edward IX and my undoubtedly royal awesomeness, but in the end I found it a bit sycophantic: I may be King but you don't have to celebrate my grace all the time! ;-) I have to admit the one-day working week is a good idea though!
@cesc. I think you'd make a good king or queen. Your country would be sunny, you educate people on how to pick up members of the opposite sex at bars (I have zero qualifications in this area!) and there would be lots of singing - preferably hard rock imagine.

And the winner is...


It was a very hard choice, but sometimes making tough decisions is what being king is about!

Cesc, please e-mail your postal address and T-shirt size (S,M,L), with subject line PLEASE SEND ME MY GOODIES YOUR HIGHNESS, to: jim AT gymglish DOT com

The rest of you, as I am such a generous king, send me the same information as above and you shall have a runner-up prize!

All hail King Edward!

it's too late, isn't it? what a pity! I should have suggested to forbid advertising on TV, 'cause I don't need any pause during movies, and to forbid advertising on the sides of roads, because I do like looking to the landscape behind, and to forbid advertising in supermarket because I already know what I'm looking for, and to forbid advertising for monarchy ... stop it, please, don't hurt me, I won't do it again.

Hi Wahiba!

Yes, your comment is a bit late this time, but there will be lots of other opportunities to win stuff! I'll try and advertise the next competition better... oops sorry you don't like advertising, do you? Sorry! ;-)
