Every newspaper in Croatia is filled with this new baby-king of UK. So I was a bit surprised when I saw that there is no thread about it in the World News.

I also found an appropriate newspaper headline for the event.

I'm glad there is a distinct lack of royal baby threads.

I am sick and tired of the news about that pointless little baby. "Oh goody goody, the Royal-do-fuck-alls have another child which will in all likelihood will be an over-privileged kid spending his life under guard for no good reason! YAY!"

... Seriously, why do the royals have guards?

... Aside from tourism is there a good reason why they are still considered "important"?

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

And that is exactly the reason why I have put this story in the Ranting corner. Apparently, the joke has eluded muffs...

No, the fact that Kate had the baby had eluded me.
That's fantastic.

What's fantastic? The fact that she had a baby, or the fact that you didn't have a clue about it? I would understand if it was the second thing, but if it was the first... Then we shall end our friendship.

And there we go...

I thought you were sane, Muffs...

Another person I had a pseudo-respect... gone...

What have the royal family done to hurt you?
Nothing.
What have the royal family done to hurt the world as a whole?
Nothing.

So why do you have such illogical thoughts towards the Royal family?

Because most royalty are figureheads who serve no actual purpose. Drinking Beverage

Pretty much why I don't like them.

That and the fact that any time they do something, it clogs the media here something fierce; they are popular and covered in media while having absolutely no claim to fame outside being born in to the right archaic relic-from-an-age-gone-by of a 'family'.
