I Don't Give a Damn About the Royal Family

Though his talk show lasted a relatively short period of time, Arsenio Hall left an imprint back in my college days, from "The People Who..." gag to "Things That Make You Go Hmmmm..."  to the Bill Clinton saxophone appearance.  Another gem was whenever news would break about the royal family, he would make a quick mention of it and then say, "I don't give a damn about the royal family." 

I couldn't agree with him more.  The news was all abuzz today that Prince William is engaged to his longtime girlfriend (or is it Prince Harry, I can never keep track of those two).

While I'm certainly happy for two people in love who have decided they want to spent the rest of their lives together, I have more important things to worry about.  I wish them the best.  But I don't give a damn about the royal family.


  1. Oh come on now, we all know that you know exactly which prince is getting married. but i agree, the whole thing doesn't do much for me.

  2. LOL ... it is mindless fodder. A small little diversion from the everyday. As long as they don't classify it as breaking news and interrupt my one guilty pleasure (Young and the Restless)it is all good.

  3. You can count on it interrupting at least one show... I do remember watching Charles and Dianna's wedding, not sure if I'd be inclined to watch more than a blip in the news about it... maybe about what we heard about the Clinton wedding, or less.
    I think alot is being made of it because he is the heir to the throne.
