This ranks right up there with giving a fuck what Ivanka Trump wore to (name an event).
But we like seeing Ivanka.
My wife, bless her heart, is infatuated with all things English. She thinks she was Anne Boleyn or some other Queen in a previous life. Needless to say she fawns all over anything royal, especially weddings and of course babies. Drives me nucking futs, but then I do the same to her with my hockey obsession so it evens out.
Personally the whole idea of royalty boggles my mind. I mean how can someone be anointed ruler of an entire country based simply on whose uterus they fell out of? And people not only put up with it but embrace it as if these people are somehow superior based only on their name. How the human race can be so intelligent and yet so dumb at the same time is one of life's many ironies.

The one-eighth of me that IS British does not give the square root of sweet f*ck-all.
Just a matter of great lack of passing interest, where did you learn that snippet?
Please, PLEASE save room for me. I don't take up much space and I don't fart endlessly or take drugs.
I can't cook much, but I'm REALLY good at making deadfalls and traps and stuff like that.
Para, it is good therapy to share your feelings honestly - get in touch with yourself and don't sugar coat the whole thing this way.....
Tell us what you really think
I must leave now to clean up my keyboard and get some fresh coffee. Thanks for the laugh.

One of the reasons I've just stopped watching the 'news' (sic) for a while. Looking at the national news (sic) is like tuning in to Entertainment Tonight or TMZ.

With regards to the wedding, this thread had been the most informative thing I’ve read on the topic.
The only question now is what to feed the birds in order to yield maximum effect.

Local news here just spent 20 minutes of what kind of hat to wear to a royal wedding, and how to correctly pour tea, and use a spoon. Evidently popping the tab on a can of sweet tea out of a cooler, and taking a big swig is all the wrong way of doing it, who knew ?, probably why I was not invited.

Brits have to have something to keep their interest since they outlaw all guns.
Why do they have to bring that misery over here with this wedding crap?

Because millions of bored American housewives are ravenously demanding to be spoon-fed every little detail about the royal wedding.
Not a scientific sample, but from the comments section of the Daily Mail. Every time there is an article involving Ms. Markle, those with British locations displayed are sour to her by 10:1. When they first announced their engagement I politely wished them well. That comment received an overwhelming number of down votes.
I'm sorry, I'm thinking about the cats again...
Between the royal wedding and the anti-Trump crap on the television news, I mute it frequently to keep from going Elvis on the television.

I am not a anglophile and it seems as though the more the "media" tells me I should be infatuated with someone or something the more I avoid it.
Tac Foley has it right. These shenanigans mean fuck all to me as well.
The same thing is true of actors, athletes, and politicians. The more the media fawns, the less interested I become.
Yes, Para does appreciate humor.
