Ottawa- The RCMP will be presenting Queen Elizabeth with a gift later this month. In tribute to her role as acting honorary commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police they plan on giving her a taser at an upcoming military tatoo May 16th.
A special contingent of mounties, including a pipe band will be flying to England for the ceremony. The Queen was said to be elated upon finding out she will be getting the same model as the one that killed Robert Dziekanski. Unable to contain her excitement, a spokesman for the Queen said, "she invited the mounties, pipe band and all to stay at Windsor Castle as her guest."
To show their gratitude for the Queens hospitality, before they leave for Canada, the RCMP is planning a quick demonstration on the proper use of a taser. Said one Mountie,"It's good to have your technique down. You never know when the Queen might have to defend herself against somebody wielding a stapler or some other piece of stationary equipment. So we'll show her how to fire the tasor and some tricks on aiming it properly. Luckily a Polish grounds keeper has volunteered to help with the exercise."
The taser is the latest in a long list of gifts given to the Royals on behalf of the RCMP. The tradition started during the birth of Canada when the Queen received a Hudson's Bay Blanket simular to the one's traded with the Indigenous population.
