Did the Queen watch porn?

I read everything, folks. My voracious need to fill my journalist's curiosity involves a daily diet of RSS feeds, e-mail alerts and even tweets. I can't always control what comes down the pipe. To wit, this piece that landed on my BlackBerry first thing this morning. Before breakfast.
Couple arrested for sex on Queen's lawn (UPI, other coverage: The Telegraph, The Guardian, The Current
I felt like throwing up a little in my mouth after reading it, and ended up skipping breakfast altogether. Now that I've had a few hours to let this admittedly bizarro news story sink in, I find myself wondering what Lizzie saw from her Windsor Castle window, and what she may have been thinking at the time. Come to think of it, maybe I don't want to know.

Reports of Japanese tourists filming the event make me wonder how long it'll be before this shows up on YouTube. Who's taking bets?

Your turn: The weirdest news story I've ever heard was...?

I saw some porn from the window of my mom's hospital room one time. The oddest part was, it was 9:00 am and done through a chain link fence. I am not kidding.

I thought the story about the guy who left his girl friend sitting on the toilet so long that was physically stuck to the seat was pretty weird. Weird and very sad.

The weirdest one I ever heard involved an outhouse and voyeurism....and yes you probably would give up breakfast all together.

I've seen some stuff like that I'd like to get out of my head.

I bet the Queen had her binoculars out.

The most recent weird news item was about that autistic 13 year old kid who drove his dads car to the airport (first time driving) and bought a ticket and flew across country. Because he had an infatuation with flying.

If the Queen did (does?) watch porn, what would the titles be?
There's a challenge for your readers.
Some suggestions:
" Lie back and think of England"
"Servicing your Majesties secrets"
"F***ingham Palace"
