Prince William passes out

In today's news, we hear that Prince William has taken part in the 'passing out' ceremony at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst after a 44-week course to become an officer in the British Army.

General Sir Anthony Cecil Hogmanay Melchett described the passing out ceremony:
"The passing out ceremony has been a tradition at Sandhurst since the Battle of Waterloo. After a night of reckless binge-drinking, if the trainee hasn't managed to throw up in his hat, assault an officer of the Military Police and get himself tied stark-naked to an enormous artillery piece before he passes out, then he simply isn't the sort of person we want in the British Army."

Hey - that guy that passed out on the railway lines is wasted, er, I mean for no good reason.
