ROYAL WEDDING ROYAL WEDDING ROYAL WEDDING ROYAL WEDDING ROYA

Post by Specially Cork » Thu Apr 28, 2011 9:15 am

So the son of the son of a poweless old lady is getting married and it makes international headlines. I'm all for a bit of UK patriotic whatever, and I'm happy for any British royalist to go crazy if they want. But the rest of the world should be ashamed at taking an interest in something so pointless.

Live coverage on Fox News? Live analysis on state-run China TV? Seriously?
Fuck me.

I guess everyone really is bored of earthquakes and middle-east uprisings.

It's a cultural thing. I could sit here and bullshit about how important this monarchy is historically because of the fact that it once ruled over portions of every continent, and that's why the world recognizes it as important, but no, the only reason anyone else watches it is because Americans watch it. And why do Americans watch it? Because we read fictional tales of galantry, heroism, and The Lord of the Rings and every decade or so we realize that some places still operate this way--AND JUST SO HAPPEN TO SPEAK THE SAME LANGUAGE! HOW SIMPLE! So since America cares, the world has to care.

I personally enjoy it, simply for the bravado and employment of such traditional ceremonies and attire. It's a grand display of a time long lost. Of nationalism and indigenous culture.

If our Presidential inaugurations included men in tricorne hats, I'd be a much happier man.

That's because you aren't female.
