News Item:  Not so long ago a trespasser was arrested on the grounds of Harry and
Meghan's house.  He spoke to our intrepid reporter.

Sir, what made you trespass repeatedly ...

Well, I had this urge, you see ...

An urge!  Could you explain.

I have this urge you see and I've had it ever since I discovered they had nine

What kind of urge?

You have surely heard of mal de mer ...

You mean sea sickness ...

Yes, And mine you could call it mal de bum.

Mal de bum!  What on earth is that?

Very simple.  I wanted to sit on the same pot that Henry and Meghan sat on.  What
could be closer contact?

It sounds quite sick.

That's why I call it mal de bum.

I see.  And you didn't succeed ...

I am not doing them any harm and I think the judge will probably realize that and let
me off with community service.

What then ?  Will you try again?

I'd rather not comment on that as you can probably understand.    

Mal de bum, eh.  I think you might have started something in the woke crowd.  
Imagine Harry and Meghan going to a party now.  They'll fill 'em with liquid and then
fight to be the first to go after.

Yes, mal de bum could become an epidemic ...
