Forget CNN or the BBC. Here is my favorite coverage of the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton:
"Oh no. Do you know what?"
"I'm thinking about the fact that one in five public sector workers in Britain are about to lose their jobs."
"Yes, that is very sad, actually."
"Isn't it terrible?"
Yeah, dude. It's horrible! Though, I do like those gnomes. Funny hats.
Victoria Mather, friend of the British royal family, has a different take on the situation:
"I think the British taxpayer is being very mean about moaning about paying for this wedding. I mean, it's a privilege, isn't it?"
Thank goodness it's not my privilege. My taxes are going to better things, like three illegal wars on foreign soil.
"I'd prefer to be paying for the royal wedding and cleaning the streets afterwards and for all the security than to be paying for illegal immigrants to claim benefits and live in sinker states."
"Oh! Why not make it a race issue?"
Did Mr. Oliver say that the royal wedding will cost taxpayers 20 million pounds (at 2:38)? Based on current exchange rates, that's about 33 jillion dollars! You know how many British weddings I could throw for £20 million? About 20. Wedding planners don't come cheap.
