Caption This: Bette's queen-sized reaction

By Liz Kelly

If we can possibly tear ourselves away from Tiger, I ask that we turn our collective attention to one Bette Midler, aka the Divine Miss M, who Monday pulled the face you see below upon meeting Queen Elizabeth. We can understand how that might discombobulate one, but what's with the manicure hands pose and why is that man petting her? That's where you come in. Submit your own captions for the photo in the comment section below. The best will be elevated to a position of prominence here in the blog.

I thought this was a casting call for "MADAME Butterfly," not "M Butterfly"!

The "hearing aid" could be a monitor - she might have been singing...

Pussy Bette, Pussy Bette, where have you been? I've been to London, to visit the queen!

Queen: As we say in the palace, Ms. Midler, she who smelt it, probably dealt it.
