Queen’s RIM job: five wonderful things Elizabeth II can do with her new BlackBerry

Queen’s RIM job: five wonderful things Elizabeth II can do with her new BlackBerry

On Monday, our royal sovereign joined the ranks of famous BlackBerry owners (Barack Obama, Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan, Kristin Cavallari, etc.) when she toured Research in Motion headquarters in Waterloo and was given a personalized Bold 9700 model by RIM co-founder Mike Lazaridis. Sure, it’s been rumoured that Queen Elizabeth II already has a BlackBerry, but now that it’s official, we thought the time was ripe to suggest five things she could do on her new gizmo.

1) Facebook stalk Prince Harry It’ll give her a chance to keep tabs on the wild prince when he’s overseas. Nothing kills a drunken night of partying in a Nazi uniform faster than a videotext reminder that MI5’s assassin unit works for Grandma Betsy.

2) Start selling homemade hats on Etsy No one, not even Aretha Franklin, can top the Queen when it comes to bold head wear. With more and more people questioning the role of the royal family, Her Majesty should be happy that, thanks to sites like Etsy.com, crafting is so hot right now.

3) Play sudoku while meeting with Stephen Harper Wouldn’t anyone?

4) Start anonymous Twitter fights @CamillaDofC Your hat makes your butt look big #pwned @DuchessFerg hmm…what DO you have left to sell? LOL @ Iggy bit.ly/bL6qHE This tea towel better not be soaked in anthrax or it’s going back @RCMP

5) Sext
