Anybody going to watch the royal wedding? I think that royal weddings are always interesting affairs, so I'll watch it on delay. If you're in Great Britain, you'd better watch because those are your £18 at work!

So this is the place where I can say how much I don't care about the royal wedding?
I just don't get all the hoopla.

It's a distraction from the suckiness of the rest of the world I suppose. Also, Kate Middleton is pretty cute.

If that is the case, this thread is worthless without pics.

There's a thread for that.

Hey, wasn't there a thread with pictures of pizza or something? Where'd that go? This should become that.

great tweet in my twitter stream this morning from @gracedent: Middleton mother currently locked in bog alone, claws clutching sink, silently mouthing into mirror 'Good Girl, Carol we ****ing DID IT.'

I can honestly say I'm so far removed from this stuff I didn't even know it was happening this weekend. I remember hearing about the engagement months ago but that's about it.

A flight attendant last weekend told my wife she looked like Kate Middleton. I guess it's a complement?

I'd hope so, though I doubt she'd like you calling her "it".

After posting I knew something didn't look right, I went back in to edit to make sure spell check didn't come up and when it didn't show a problem, I went back to watching the episode of South Park that design posted.

I'm firmly in the "who gives a shit" category. Then again I have zero interest in the history of the royal family in general.

Kate Middleton - Lindsay Lohan = Sarah Palin

That said, I would watch Michelle Rodriguez wedding with more interest than the Commonwealth Monarchs', even if it was succeeded by a Manchester game and preceded by a Beatles reunion.

Not as suspicious as the massively bad NHS news the government released... at the exact moment Wills and Kate were taking their vows.

Timing is everything.
