You Dumb Bastards

3 years ago

I don't get out much. This is nothing new. The other day I was in a normal grocery store as opposed to the tiny hick market I usually frequent and I saw Star magazine. (The tiny hickmarket by our house doesn't have trash magazines next to the registers thus limiting my pop culture knowledge to zilch.)




When I saw the cover of Princess Kate and it said, "It's official! She's Pregnant" my first thought was, "You dumb bastards" to quote a favorite Kevin Smith movie, Mallrats. Then my second thought was, "Of course she's not pregnant, you don't believe these rags. How can it be trusted when the story next to it is about Jessica Simpson's weight or what Miley Cyrus did with her tongue now?"

Didn't the Royal Couple just have Prince George? Wasn't that hullabaloo only three months ago? My two monsters angels are close in age, but not THAT close! My next thought after calling the Prince and Princess of Cambridge dumb bastards was, "Ha ha! You will know my misery." A millisecond later it struck me that "They're royalty. They probably have nannies coming out the yin yang. And will never know my misery. So go on and have ten more!"

I already feel sorry for their alleged second born child though. Can you imagine following in these footsteps?


Any subsequent birth or baby would pale in comparison to this level of perfection.

As everyone knows you go all out for your first born -- brand new everything. Nothing but the absolute best! And in Prince George's case literal parades thrown in his honor, his birthday a national holiday.

So what does the second one get? Hand-me downs and an empty baby book or in this case a smaller crown with less gems and an older brother who can do no wrong in his mother's eyes...even if he declares war on the rest of the world.

That poor alleged second child!
