I have heard of strip poker, strip beer pong (yes, I have 2 sons, one who graduated college last year and another who is a senior in college now), and crazy versions of Twister. But until yesterday, I had never heard of strip billiards. Thank You Prince Harry.
I have spoken a number of times at UAB, to both the Social Media class as well as a fraternity. I always give two very strong warnings: First, no matter where you are, if there are other people with you, you may be photographed with a cell phone camera. Second, when you are with other people, don't do anything that you would not want your mother to see. Prince Harry failed miserably, and the Queen Mother is not very happy now.
Prince Harry was in Las Vegas, in a private $8,000 a night suite, playing strip billiards with a number of other people. A person who was there took photographs with his/her phone camera. As the New York Daily News reports, he was seen holding his crown jewels and also hugging an equally naked women. What happens in Vegas does not necessarily stay in Vegas.
The lessons to be learned? No matter who you are, you are subject to having your photograph taken at any time. If this happened to someone who was not a Prince, there is a good likelihood he/she would lose their job. If this happened to someone in the US military, there is a good chance they would be discharged, or at least severely punished. Luckily for Ryan Lochte, the US Olympic gold medal swimmer, he knew better than to go to the party. He was also in Vegas, and Prince Harry asked to meet him, which he did. The Prince asked Ryan to come up to the party, but he refused. Maybe he remembered Michael Phelps, after the 2008 Olympics, when he was photographed sucking on a bong on a college campus. Be careful out there!
