London Must Be The Most Boring Place On The Planet
LONDON, July 17 (UPI) — Margaret Rhodes, British Queen Elizabeth II’s first cousin, says she “is not terribly” excited about the impending birth of Prince William‘s first child. Rhodes made the comment when CNN’s Christiane Amanpour asked her this week if she is excited about the new addition to the royal family. “Not terribly,” she laughed. “Well, you know, everybody has babies, and it’s lovely. I don’t get wildly excited about it.” “Really?” Amanpour asked. “Not even for the next heir to the throne? History?” “Yes, all right, I’m prepared to be excited,” Rhodes said. William’s wife Kate Middleton reportedly was due to give birth to their first child July 11, but the palace hasn’t confirmed her due date and the baby has yet to arrive. NBC News said Middleton’s mom, Carole, has told friends the child will be a Leo, an astrological sign whose dates don’t begin until July 23. Middleton also has been spending time at her parents’ country house — miles from the London hospital where she intends to give birth — suggesting she’s not expecting her baby until next week, Zap2it.com said. William is the queen’s grandson. – UPI.com
In the US THIS WEEK we had a murder trial that exposed the major flaws in our justice system, a TV star overdosed on heroin and heated abortion debates are consuming one of our largest states. None of those stories compare to the bombshell coming out of London, England this morning. The Queen’s first cousin “isn’t terribly excited” about the birth of Prince Williams baby. The balls on this lady. Comments like this will surely rock the country of England to it’s very core. How boring must it be to live in London? I know America is insane and we’re guilty of shining the spotlight on all of the wrong people and things, but at least we’re not boring. Fatally flawed, yes. But not boring. Meanwhile everyone in London is walking around with umbrella’s talking about how the Queen’s first cousin couldn’t give two shits about the birth of a royal baby. Hey lady, stick to tea, crumpets and cricket. That’s the English way.
P.S. It’s always bothered me that the English put the word “terribly” in front of the word “excited”. Are you bad at being excited? Get your shit together and butcher the language like an American.
