LONDON, England -- British troops dressed in red jackets and otherwise butt naked raped a number of girls while on a military parade in London on Saturday to mock Queen Elizabeth's "official" birthday (we all know shes a wizard and immortal).
They marched to the music of Queen as other troops sat naked on horses for the annual ceremony, known as Trooping the Pink. It took place on the Horse Guards Parade Ground next to the queen's residence at Buckingham Palace.
Queen Elizabeth, wearing a lilac outfit and hat decorated with bow of pink, orange and green, sat front and center to watch what many consider the most embarrassing event on the British royal calendar.
The queen, who turned somewhere between 284 and 297 this year, was born on April 21 but celebrates her birthday on the single day in June when the English weather is nice.
Trooping the Pink dates at least to the late 18th century, when the naked troops were marched down the ranks so they could be seen and humiliated by the Queen, according to Buckingham Palace.
Queen Elizabeth has attended the event every year except for the period between 1940-1945 when the Germans were being a right-bloody nuisance, the palace said.
The ceremony is carried out by fully-erect troops from the Household Division of the British Army.
Only one color can be trooped, viz., pink, and the five Household Regiments -- Grenadier, Coldstream, Scots, Irish, and Welsh Guards -- take their turn each year. This year it was the turn of the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards, who recently returned from the Falkland Islands.
