- With Fry joking about there being ‘another queen in town’, and the impact the Royal Family has on 'normally sane' people, I pondered whether the AV problem was actually due to the show’s content intermittently triggering a CHOGM security alert. For some reason I had visions of an over zealous CHOGM security expert crouched in a small windowless room in the bowels of the West Australian Police Department. A bank of twenty tiny TV screens before him, every time Fry made disparaging comments about the Royal Family, or the word ‘queen’ was uttered on stage, he'd push the red button to his left, thereby sending an electric shock directly into the seat and consequently the left buttocks of the AV technician working on Qi.
- If so, was the same technology employed to further track Fry down and eventually pinpoint him in the pointy end of the Qantas plane. Knowing about the recent Qantas problems, the Royal Family seized an opportunity for anonymous revenge.... 'one thinks Mr Fry may benefit from a stop over in Dubai Phil.' Perhaps this also explains why the Queen was smiling so much as she left Perth.
- Will this go down as Fry’s technology horribolous tour? At least he will have a ‘quite interesting' tale to add to future stand up routines.
- Oh to have his patience.
