Do you simpsonize? Who was Queen Dick?

Posted on: 16/11/2009

Simpsonize means to cheat one’s customers by watering down their milk;-)

And do you know what Queen Dick means? Though originally a backhanded reference to Richard Cromwell (1626-1712), more commonly an imaginary British monarch of the shrouded past, cited when describing something that likely never happened: “That quack, he must have earned his medical degree during the reign of Queen Dick.”
