Prince What’s His Face and Duchess Kiss My Ring are the proud parents of a new little baby I really don’t care. And for some reason, we’re all supposed to be excited about this?
 OK, first of all, didn’t we kick royalty out of this country a couple hundred years ago? What’s the big excitement that the world is “blessed” with another inbred idiot?
 After winning our independence, we did not declare George Washington as “King.” Well actually, we couldn’t. His family tree looked like a tree, not a circle.
 What is the fascination some people have with these silk adorned clowns with bad taste in clothing?
 Dukes, earls, barons and baronesses, count and countesses, lords and ladies, viscounts, kings, queens, jacks, aces, full houses, empty heads.
 I presume Lord Voldemort was ranked somewhere between an earl and a viscount. Would death eaters really follow someone called “The Duke of Must Not Be Named?”
 For a short period of time, England did get it right. The Brits overthrew the crown in 1649 and executed their monarch, Charles I.
 The story of royalty in England would have ended on a high note, but in 1660 they reinstated the monarchy and put Charles II on the thrown.
