    The Royal Baby!

    Kate Middleton is in labor as I type, anybody care? Guess I do. Mainly waiting for the expected pomp & circumstance that will follow.

    I'm glad you said it first Scott. This woman has been "having a baby" for a year already. I thought the kid was born already about 6 months ago.

    My take is this: when celebrities start to care/obsess about me, I'll return the favor. Otherwise, my life keeps me fully occupied.

    I laughed harder at this than any grown man should.

    As for royal watching: I suppose everyone needs a hobby, and it is quite a spectacle. I just seems a damn expensive hobby that everyone winds up paying for. But then, the same could be said about professional sports. Can't say I'm a big fan of either, but knock yourself out.

    I'm British & I could care less, I'm going to be in England for the rest of the week and dreading all the bloody pageantry. A bloody waste of taxpayers money on an anachronism.

    I care, because as soon as this divinely chosen child is born he'll immediately be superior to all ordinary UK citizens, who will be sworn in fealty to defend and uphold him. It's exciting - all members of PE who are citizens of the UK will have a new, infant task-master to whose every whim they must slavishly kowtow. Rejoice!

    Watching the media, especially the British media, lose their shit over this is quite entertaining.

    Who the hell cares? Same people who care about Kim K's baby and Kanye West's beef with the paparazzi, I suppose. What a waste of time on the news.

    Luckily, the media will have something important and meaningful to obsess over while everything else goes to shit.

    Via bbc.com -


    The Duchess of Cambridge has given birth to a baby boy, Kensington Palace has announced.

    The baby was delivered at 16:24 BST at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, west London, weighing 8lb 6oz.

    The palace said in a statement that the duchess and the baby were "doing well" and would stay in hospital overnight.

    The news has been displayed on an ornate easel in the forecourt of Buckingham Palace in line with tradition.

    A bulletin, signed by key medical staff, was taken by a royal aide from St Mary's to the palace under police escort.

    The press release said the Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth.

    "The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and members of both families have been informed and are delighted with the news," it said.

    Whoo-hoo! High fives and congrats to all the Brits on PE! Congratulations on this new baby, who can tell you what to do once he's able to speak.

    I don't really have an issue with the people who were born into or married into what was once "royalty'. My issue concerns the Matt Lauer media douche-bags of the world who fall over themselves trying to make anything with a wisp of royalty seem important. And, if they are successful, it generates more revenue... for them, their primary objective.

    But, they wouldn't be getting any additional revenue if it weren't for the empty-headed "your-life-is-more-important-than-mine" folks who gladly fork over their earnings to soak up this drivel.

    And look at me! How much time of my finite lifespan have I wasted on this topic?
