For some reason, the US public and media seem to have an endless and deep fascination with the parasitic, good-for-nothing, British royal family. There seems to be something about all the pomp and pageantry associated with them that makes them go weak at the knees and completely lose their sense of reason, something that I wrote about in 2009 in a post titled God save us from the Queen on the occasion of the Obamas’ visit to England.
So I was glad to learn from Stephen Colbert that one prankster took advantage of this mindless obsession to pull a great gag on the media. Serves them right.
