TheJoe03: What kind of American actually cares about this whole thing? It reminds me of that Queen celebration a year or two ago that CNN was creaming themselves over, I just don't get it.


This.

Didn't we fight a couple of wars specifically so that we don't have to give a fark about English royalty?

kevinatilusa: #1 story on BBC home page at the moment: China Earthquake.

Below it's the Dubai rape case, then below that's the Royal baby.

#1 story on CNN home page at the moment: "Royal Baby on the Way".  The Earthquake's a single sentence link stuck on the left below "5 things to start your new day".


This is waaaaay more relevant to American media interests than UK. NPR did a hilarious bit, I think it was "On the Media" where they went to London to gauge excitement, and most English were like "meh"...then they played clips of all our dumb morning and News outlets that were flipping the fark out.

The birth of royalty is a far more momentous occasion than the death of peasants.

It's always been true.

See You Next Tuesday: For 9 months? Babies gestate for nine months. I think you're full of s*** is what I think.


Firstly, Slaxl pointed out that he didn't know about the labour, not the whole pregnancy.  Not really sure why you went off on that particular tangent.  You're wrong anyway.  I agree fully with Slaxl on this.  Hello! and OK! readers will know about it, but beyond the severe morning-sickness and the slip about the sex of the baby, this pregnancy simply hasn't generated as much public interest as you seem to want it to have.  I didn't know she was in labour until I got to my office this morning - in Glasgow.  I didn't see it on any TV screens in Gatwick (showing BBC Breakfast - although I didn't watch for long, it still torpedoes your contention that it's everywhere), didn't hear it on the radio in the taxi on the way to the airport.  The  hammering of Australia in the Ashes 2nd Test came up more often - and rightly so.

Although millions of people couldn't give the tiniest shait, I wish her and child well, and may their offspring be the last ever in the royal line of British monarchs.

Does anyone honestly give a shiat about the British royal family? Do they pay advertising time for the constant American media coverage? Why do I turn on the news and not a day goes by where one of the top "stories" isn't Prince William taking a shiat? These people aren't even important in Britain, let alone here.

mr lawson: AverageAmericanGuy: Oldiron_79: Jeebus I thought we fought 2 wars with those wankers to not have to give a shiat about thier royalty.

There's something ingrained deep down in our American psyche that makes us long for a king to rule over us.

It's why Bush was elected twice.

Kneel before me. I said...kneel! Is not this simpler? Is this not your natural state? It's the unspoken truth of humanity that you crave subjugation. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life's joy in a mad scramble for power. For identity. You were made to be ruled. In the end, you will always kneel.

Slaxl: I love how you all love to proclaim loudest how you don't care. If it wasn't for Fark I wouldn't know about this and I'm English. You guys have a fetish for the royals. Half of you love them, the other half love to hate them. Otherwise you wouldn't be here.


Bullshiat. We complain because every media outlet in the country preempts coverage of real news stories to ram coverage of the British royal family down our throats every single day. You literally cannot get through Good Morning America without at least some 30 second mention of them. It was "When is William going to propose?" then "When is the wedding?" then "When will Kate get pregnant?" and now "When is the baby coming." It NEVER. FARKING. ENDS. I do not give a F*CK about these people and the media makes it impossible to avoid hearing about them without shunning all news coverage of everything.

HLN just had a note at the bottom of the screen informing me that Prince Charles would be the grandfather. This is some hard hitting news.

I kinda am because since I got hired to work on this new project  where I have been researching the European royals and they have an interesting history. It's full of romance, intrigue, back stabbers and addicts. Queen Victoria the first had a fairy tale romance with Albert, then after Albert died she became a biatch to deal with. There was a prince who died of epilepsy and was isolated from the rest of the family as he got older.

This.

But you have to remember that those morning news shows are targeted at a specific demographic:  Housewives.  They are the only ones around to watch in the morning, because they don't have to go to work.  Housewives get drawn into that sort of thing because it plays to their childhood princess fantasies.  Same with the royal wedding.

They changed it to Windsor in the 30s I think, but it's some awfully long German name. It's house of Windsor now at least.

They can go with one of three:  Mountbatten-Windsor, Wales, or Cambridge for the baby.  Liz and Phil go by Mountbatten-Windsor.

4seasons85!: Am I the only one who thinks this woman should be aloud to have her baby in private without the public freaking out? They have been going on and on and on about her pregnancy for months now. I say let the poor woman give birth to her child in peace!


It's not like they have a camera up her cooter dear. In the old days people gathered around the bed and got invites to sit and watch a birth so they could be witnesses.

Yeah, I suppose this like Kim Kardashian, Snooki  and Beyonce delivering all at the same time for them or something.


To quote my Welsh friend: "It's not bloody united!"  My guess is that a lot of people in Wales, Scotland, and especially Northern Ireland don't care.

The other night I thought I'd check the CNN website to see if the royal birth had happened yet.  As it turned out the lead story was still about the poor woman who fell out of the roller coaster.  But for a microsecond my brain did a backflip as the first thing I saw was the big headline "SHE JUST FLEW OUT!".

Actually Northern Ireland cares a great deal.  The majority of them really, really, really don't want to be part of the non-royal Republic of Ireland.

As for the Welsh, seriously?  The last independent Welsh principality was conquered approximately 600 years ago.  Are they still butthurt over that?  You don't see any "Restore the Hanseatic League" protests in Hamburg and Bremen, do you?

See You Next Tuesday: For 9 months? Babies gestate for nine months. I think you're full of s*** is what I think.


Such anger. TheEnvoy is right, I only meant this particular "going into labour" thing, not the whole thing obviously. However for the last 9 months I have heard very little, less than I was expecting, to be honest. I was fearing what you've evidently had. 24/7 royal baby watch bollocks, but it never materialised, I am relieved. There'll inevitably be a circus for the birth and a few days after but then everything will be back to normal, it's no big deal.

Now you can resume flying off the handle and being inappropriately angry at innocuous comments on the internet. Appropriate handle, because you are a giant one.
