|Britain's royal family is literally the goose that laid the golden egg. Haters|
of this institution are simply that and haven't bothered to do any of the math.
In short (TL;DR):
|Americans could compare the royal family to the Kardashians. But that|
would be seriously insulting. The royal family makes the Brits a TON of
cash. The Kardashians make the U.S. a ton of embarrassment.
The golden goose tourists from America dump buckets of money on the UK every year to see the royals and everything they touch with magical "royal pixie" dust. It's a better attraction than Disneyland. Twelve million tourists spending $7000 million pounds is a good thing, right? Hell yes it is. In Chris Rocks words, that's a lotta money!
|Cheap Pete from the 90's show, "In Living Color." He's best known for|
saying "Good Lord that's a LOTTA MONEY!"
I (like the rest of the world) am curious as to the name of the new baby. I also kind of think it'd be cool if the prince was born gay. Wouldn't that be interesting? I wonder how the royals would react if their son said, "Um...I've been dating a guy that I met while playing polo..." William would probably look at Kate and say, "Why did you insist on wearing all that pink while you were pregnant? Sigh."
Oh my. The world would never be the same.
I'll be taking the rest of the week off. I'll see you guys next Monday.
