Here's a new Mudcat challenge, playwriting division:

Rewrite Pygmalion (or My Fair Lady) with Higgins replaced by a computer! And Liza Doolittle replaced by Queen Elizabeth, trying to get her old accent back! Add a generational switch, and you could have Prince Charles singing "Oi'm Gettin Married in na Moarning!" and ranting about middle-class morality!

OK, you don't have to write the whole play. Just suggest a few plot developments, or a few speeches.
