Royal Wedding Not on My Tivo List
Allow me to preface this post with this tidbit of a factoid: I have never been married. ESPECIALLY to royalty. Nor do I actually possess a Tivo system.
That being said, it’s no big secret that I am not at all fascinated by the upcoming “royal wedding”. Nor are most other Americans.
I think that, for those who ARE fascinated by the event, it is because of the ‘romantic’ thought of actually being able to marry a prince. How many fairy tales/romance novels have touched on the subject? At last count: a gadozen bajillion.
And did you hear CJ and Deb this morning, talking about Prince Charles not having to squeeze his own toothpaste (insert your British/Bad Teeth joke here)? Even the Queen has been quoted as saying that his pampered lifestyle is ‘grotesque’.
What else is ‘grotesque’? ABC News giving you SEVEN Top Tech ways to follow the royal wedding. Really?
Here’s a company that is celebrating the wedding in a novel way: Scottish brewing company Brew Dog is celebrating the occasion by releasing a “Royal Virility Performance” ale, which, according to its website, is laced with herbal Viagra, chocolate, goat weed and “a healthy dose of sarcasm.”
It will take three bottles of “Royal Virility Performance” ale to give you the same jolt as one Viagra pill, and you can have this 7.5 percent alcohol elixir shipped to you for about $15 a bottle.
The ‘up’ side of this news is that 20 percent of the beer’s sales will go to Centrepoint, a charity favored by the royal family.
I wonder how much of the ‘elixir’ Prince Charles’ mistress(es) would have to drink to fog up her ‘beer goggles’??
