That'll keep the Scots on board, right?
but if true, congratulations Wills and Kate :)
do you think they would reciprocate?
what I really mean is - that's a strange sentiment for you to offer.....why?
congratulations? or congratulate the farmer?
do you fall to the floor and weep with grief?
No, so stop whinging about your murdered infant daughter, you fool.
grass, as a plant, has an ability to tolerate blades of itself being torn/sheared off, which is one aspect of its remarkable success, it can tolerate or even thrive on being grazed by large herbivores.
Fuck the Royal baby.
How the fuck has this thread gone so far away from it's subject matter this quickly
If I saw them I'd say congratulations. Having a baby is a nice thing and they seem like nice people.
If I actually met them irl in a natural situation, then I almost certainly say congratulations, and mean it, possibly followed by a, "as long as you are happy about it?"....(just as you would with anyone who is pleasant to you)
BUT im not going to meet them irl in a natural situation, and that is why I'm getting all hufty about this?.....why congratulate someone that are sooooooooooooooo removed from yourself?
I think it's a good thing to extend positive sentiments to everyone. Whether you have any connection to them or not.
although they are obviously human irl, they are then 'dehumanised' by their position and pov in relation to us, and then the pr machine comes along and slaps a 'media' human face on top of them again.........so yeah they are human underneath, but then there are layers put on top by the time that we get to hear that 'Kate is pregnant'
sorry, just makes me retch a bit, they might be great human beings irl (but how would we know?)
I just think having positive thoughts and feelings towards people is a good thing for your own contenment.
And has made a fair go at being a normal guy with a semi-normal job.
With Kate, I don't think you can overestimate how hard it must have been for her in that position (and still is now). She seems genuinely 'down to earth' even though she lives in a world now of formal protocols and public engagements.
I'm not a royalist, and I get fed up with the constant media bombardment with all this stuff, but behind all that it's still a nice thing to happen to a reasonably nice couple.
BUT they're not IRL.
the one we are presented with is a media construct (some of which may be them, but we cannot tell as it is a media construct that we are presented with, the media construct may have utilised a certain amount of 'the real them' but we cannot tell how much, or which)
bit like saying "bless you" when a stranger sneezes on the train.
appeared to me in a dream and told me a spawning was nigh.
March sort of time?
this one will be a good one really charming and laid back
sorry, is that racist?
What does it mean?
is a year
and technically it's meant to be the second baby born within a year of the first, as I understand it.
We had joined royals before the Union.
of an independent Scotland.
Birth of heir to the throne
Second child just announced, to be born a month or two before a general election.
Imagine having all that in your term of government and still being behind in the polls...
lets not make this about politics eh?
Just a beautiful thing.
An Irish wife, A Scottish wife, A Welsh wife and an English wife, to signify that all the kingdoms are equally important (like Ackbar the great of india (hindu muslim and Christian wives.....cos that is what he rules over......the Jains and budhists were somehow ignored (because they are less likely to kick up a fuss) , and the thugee were well pissed off)
To get more state funded child benefit innit. Scum
Dice them or mince them
Stood around waiting for baby day
theyre inherenlty better than m,e
sounds like a kind of pudding
We can keep the Royal family 4 TH TOURISMS. But we treat them with no reverence whatsoever, and - instead of being tax-funded - they make their money through being (and this is mandatory) the biggest sell-outs of all time.
Prince Philip's series of zumba videos, the Queen doing adverts for Cillit Bang, and animated series where the Royal family fight crime and each ride on their own colour-coordinated leopards, etc.
