They're the pearly kings and queens of London, and you can find some when you move to England. They're currently taking charitable donations in London's Covent Garden.

Can you hire them to follow you around all day, like your own personal entourage? That would be swell.

c2006 - The Bedazzler hits it big in the UK.

haha... what a fun group! you thinking of joining them? i think you and red would look mighty fine with little pearls sewn all over your clothes and grinning big goofy grins all day...

i bet you'd rake in more charitable donations than the whole lot combined! ;)

Red: Yes, let's!

Cynnie: That made me laugh. I'm thinking, "I don't have red hair, what's she on about?" Then I get to the next bit... Very good.

Suze: I never did! That dummy is crazy, huh? Makes you think of Dead of Night, or that film with Bill Bixby.

Karen: They'd make an excellent entourage, wouldn't they?! Perhaps they could even sell the Bedazzler, doing in-store promotions or something.

Martha: Red loved them. She took several pictures of their clothes. But she never mentioned joining them. Perhaps that's something we can do in old age...

4D: Yeah, yeah, very good!

ACT: I like Bruce Willis, so I'll take that as a compliment, thanks.

DP: Mummers, huh? Cool. Thanks Pup.

I haven't seen a Pearly King or Queen in ages, incedible. Can we have some history, how this started, I used to know a little something...I am not sure I knew this began in UK, I've seen some a t folk fairs in N.A. Is it a part of hoboing?

APP: I know, that one's looking a bit of a grouch, isn't he?

Cappy: You are sooo missing out, man!

Tanya: Yeah, I smile all right, I guess.

Milla: I'm bloody incognito, ain't I? Pearly people are fun!

Candy: I am so rubbish at history, girl. Isn't it just people who like sewing buttons on their clothes? Apparently not. According to this, it's a traditional Cockney thing.
