As far as I can tell, yes, it is the Not Amused One, and as I understand it, Cadbury was (and is?) a supplier to the Royal Court.

It's saying that Cadbury has a Royal Warrant, which is basically a fancy way of saying "A member of the Royal Family is making it very well known that they think it's good stuff." As if a royal is giving it five stars on Yelp. Incidentally, Cadbury still holds that distinction to this day.

Yes, yes I am. And even with all the Anime cheesiness, I bet it deals with the whole public-vs.-private enterprise subplot more intelligently than Atlas Shrugged

Trains in Anime could be a thread of it's own. I remeber my friend showing me some random anime and there was a War bonet painted wide cab locomotive (funney it was hauling passengers in they very gothic wooden cars) I looked up tge locomotive number under BNSF and it was indeed a real locomotive. Also the Geneshit in Yu-Gi-Oh with acurate cab controles and trucks.

1 - That didn't look all that close, he was into the yellow, but probably not actually in the path of the train (though certainly he could have fallen into it).

2 - ...Somebody tell me that's an Amtrak train set running as a Metro-North service? I'm not sure I've ever been that irked by a news error about trains.
