the royal wedding: a matter of opinion?


so I've been seeing a lot of stuff about the Royal Wedding flooding the mainstream media lately. I mean, the people in the media seem to be going apeshit about April 29th, which isn't really that far away. which I get: it's a big deal. and I'm kind of excited about it. but I mean, like in a passive way. like I feel about the Superbowl. like I feel about most elections.

I mean, I'll watch it on TV, you know? probably at a bar. probably wearing a tiara. probably holding a poodle and calling it "precious" and weeping about the fact that I will probably never ever find love. anyway!

my feeling is though most Americans DO NOT care.
my feeling is though most Brits (that are not me) DO NOT care.

I have a few British friends so I've asked them. and the one said he didn't care and the other said that Battle of Los Angeles was a bad movie. and I was like, no shit.

SO DO YOU CARE OR WHAT

  1. i am offended when americans go ga-ga over british royalty because the point of america is to abhor royalty, and that of the british varient in particular. i do kind of want to see the battle of los angeles tho

  2. I care, and I feel kind of guilty for caring because it seems like a shallow thing to care about. But Newsweek said it best: "In a world gone to hell--thank god, a wedding."

  4. the only reason why Americans care about the wedding is because a: all the kennedy's ie. your royals are dead or have gone insane, b: your celebrities and their marriages are just a bit shit.
