During last night’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Ru announced one of my favorite challenges evvvaaarrr: each queen making their box pretty!

Nobody likes a boring box!

It was a PRETTY BOX exxxtravaganza, where Ru kept asking about the BOXES and cooing over the BOXES and delighting over scented BOXES and talking about how important a queen’s BOX is! After all, what’s more important than a drag queen’s box, you tell me? Nothin’!

See the quickfire challenge at 3:45 of the video below:

When Worlds Collide

Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko of Japan exchange presents with Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip at Buckingham Palace

The Queen: Oh, erhm, hmmm. It’s, erhm…

Prince Philip: A box?

Empress Michiko: Yes. It is a late 19th century makie lacquer box with mother-of-pearl inlay.

Prince Philip: Did someone say lay?

The Queen: Mmm…well…

Emperor Akihito: I believe Her Majesty the Empress said inlay.

Prince Philip: You say it’s a box, old boy?

Emperor Akihito: Generally people address me as “Heavenly Ruler.”

Prince Philip: You say it’s a bento box, do you?

The Queen: Oh…erhm…why…

Emperor Akihito: (long sigh)

Prince Philip: And it’s filled with raw fish? Oh, how I do love fish.

Empress Michiko: Actually, it is a box used traditionally to hold a Buddhist prayer book.

Prince Philip: I’m simply mad for fish. I could eat the bloody things all day, every day. There’s nothing quite like putting one’s face into a fresh…fish. Ffff-ishhh. Why, I could practically eat the word. Num Num-nummy.

Empress Michiko: It is not filled with fish.

Emperor Akihito: Just take the picture.

The Queen: Lovely, erhm, just lovely.
