IT’S BECOME AN old joke at this point – you can do anything you want in front of one of those guys with the big, fuzzy black hats, and they can’t react.

Over the years, countless tourists in London have tried without success to get a smile or a giggle or any kind of response from a member of the Queen’s Guard.

But a video uploaded to YouTube this week suggests they draw the line at physical contact.

At what appears to be Windsor Castle, a tourist can be seen doing the usual – walking up and down alongside the guard, before resting a hand on his shoulder.

Bad idea.
