Queen Elizabeth Was Guarded By A Giant

And someone thought it would be hilarious if he was partnered with London’s shortest bobby.

1. Queen Elizabeth was hospitalized over the weekend with what was described as a “stomach bug” (don’t worry, she’s fine and was discharged this morning).

2. But while she was being treated, she was guarded by the tallest police officer in all of England, 7-foot 2-inch Anthony Wallyn.


3. Seemingly just for a jolly good laugh, Wallyn was paired with the shortest officer in the Westminster borough, 5-foot-6-inch Tony Thich.


4. The barmy nickname given to the mismatched lads by their daft coworkers? “Big Tone and Little Tone.”
