Hilarious photo of Prince Louis sums up nation’s division over new social media slogan ‘Platty Joobs’

0

A hilarious image of the laughing queen next to Prince Louis with his hands over his ears perfectly sums up the country’s division over the anniversary social media slogan “Platty Joobs.”

The young prince was the star of the show today, with his delightful antics on the balcony of Buckingham Palace as he stood next to Her Majesty, melting the hearts of the audience.

The four-year-old was pictured earlier in the day waving to bystanders, and was caught making faces and picking his nose during Trooping the Colour, covering his ears during the rowdy flypast.

The latest of these comments has been seized upon by social media users who are digging trenches over the term “Platty Joobs” – short for Platinum Jubilee.

While many have taken to heart and even embraced the light-hearted expression, others are vehemently against it.

@geraintgriffith tweeted his disdain for it, writing: ‘I just came across the phrase ‘platty joobs’ so anything can f**k off. Everything. Damn everyone.’

But the power of the expression can be too much for people to resist, tempting some to use it against their will.

Journalist and author Caitlin Moran tweeted: “The Paltinum anniversary dubbed ‘The Platty Joobs’ may be the worst thing that ever happened in my life. And yet… I’m whispering it to myself.’

Former Love Island winner Amber Gill added: ‘I wasn’t interested at all until it was rebranded as Platty Joobs, now I’m all set. Stick the Union Jack on my forehead, thank you.’

Meanwhile, @Pandamoanimum said you can say a lot about someone using the phrase.

They said, ‘People who use the term Platty Joobs no doubt also count down in their sleep until they go on their holibobs with their gawjus famalam to chillaz and have a great time because it’s like wine all the time so can be legit go for a cray cray brutal sesh whenevs babez.’

@bigdybbukeenergy said: ‘I just saw someone refer to the anniversary as the platty jobs and it sent me over the edge.’

While some social media users have come to love the term, others can't contain their hatred for it

@AAEmerson wasn’t complaining about the sentence itself, but the way it was spelled.

They said, ‘I loathe the term Platty Joobs. What an insult and a disgrace. It’s obviously Platty Jubes.’

TV critic and host Tony Earle commented on the resemblance to the famously nonsensical names in Star Wars, tweeting: ‘Haven’t seen the latest Star Wars, who’s Platty Joobs?’

Earlier in the day, social media users found an unlikely hero in the form of an Irish wolfhound.

Turlough Már, better known as Seamus, accompanied the Irish Guards as they marched to the Horse Guards Parade before large crowds enjoyed the festivities.

The dog was also a hit with people on social media

Host Lorraine Kelly led the tribute, tweeting: ‘Loving Seamus the Irish Wolfhound – steal the show effortlessly #TroopingTheColour’

Another wrote: ‘This Irish Wolfhound really thinks the parade is for him, doesn’t it? #whatagoodboy’

A third said: ‘Seamus the Irish Wolfhound has my heart’, while another added: ‘Highlight of the anniversary coverage so far has certainly been the BBC interviewing Seamus the Irish Wolfhound, mascot of the Irish Guards.’

The two-year-old dog, who was trained with the Royal Army Veterinary Corps, was joined during the parade by his handler, drummer Adam Walsh.

He told Sky News: ‘As you can imagine it is quite loud for the band and his hearing is greatly amplified.

“So staying cool, calm and composed takes a lot of training and preparation.

“We went to Melton Mowbray where they train all the army dogs and we trained in obedience for about two and a half months. You need to make sure the dog fits the role, rather than the role fits the dog.

“He has his own room where we all live. He’s a spoiled dog, he’s treated like one of the boys.’

Drummer Walsh added: ‘Not much fascinates him. He is a key figure in the battalion.

‘We now have such an inseparable bond and we enjoy working together.

“We’ve practiced so much for it, now it’s almost second nature to him, he’s going to be awesome.”
