The Royal Circus

Filed under: The Grand Circus — Tags: — Raja @ 10:05 AM

You might be forgiven if you had muted the television while watching the circus, and thought, “a balding guy is kissing a pretty lady wrapped in a huge Persian rug, and a few thousand perverts are watching and cheering!” Actually, it was a British dude’s wedding. The tax payers had to bear most of the cost, so they want to see some ‘act’!

If the television is unmuted, the commentators’ politically correct words would make you feel that you have witnessed one of the greatest moments in human history, that Kate Middleton, and the dude she married, looked ‘stunning’ and ‘smart’ respectively, and that love was oozing out (the British queen might have slipped a couple of times on that!).

Soon, there will be the claims that four thirds (!) of the whole human population have watched the circus, making it the most watched event ‘ever’. (Yeah, I have watched 3 minutes of it. I WATCHED THE BRITISH ROYAL WEDDING LIVE TELECAST. HOW COOL AM I!).

Tweets from @Bhalomanush:

“Diane Sawyer shows kids in 3rd world countries saying nice things about British monarchy …….”

– “Absolutely unbelievable!”
– “That two people got married?”
– “Don’t be a cynic. It is a big day
– “Yes, of course. The suspense was killing me.”

  2. Wow! That was quick! I was still doing certain edits to the post.
    I don’t really hate these. I get amused by these. But may be this worship of the few by the many is the thing that holds societies together. May be.

      • No better here. 300+ people died a couple of days ago because of severe weather, and all the news channels are after the british circus!
        I checked NDTV. I feel sad to see that they apparently consider the brits to be our masters (“the Queen”, “the Prince”, “Her Majesty”, …….)
