A Royal Baby Is Coming – The Sycophancy’s Already Here!December 4, 2012
A new British royal will soon be with us. Kate and Wills, or to use their official titles, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, are to be parents – Great news! Kate’s extreme morning sickness putting her in hospital has forced the royal hand to announce the pregnancy early. The good people of Blighty, however, are ecstatic. This is just the uplift the nation needs in these recessionary times.
There’s a down side to this of course and it makes me shake my head in despair. Within minutes of the announcements, the media went into a frenzy, pulling out previously underused royal correspondents and speculating about baby names. Many people are hoping for Diana if it’s a girl: a nod to Princes William and Harry’s mother. Personally, I think they should call it Queen Latifah, or Will.I.Am. Expect the tat to come spewing forth with obscene haste. As long time readers have come to expect from this blog, I will do my best to find the best tat (surely an oxymoron?) over the next few months. I may even open up a fantasy royal baby tat shop, as I did for the royal wedding.
Maybe Harry can once again call on the services of Snoop Dogg to compose a song for the newest royal as a gift. Though we shouldn’t call him that anymore. Like a faithful Mac user, he’s recently upgraded to Snoop Lion.
The baby may be coming, but the morning sickness called sycophancy is already here and will be with us for the next 6-8 months.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go and barf.
