Sometimes I have a hard time explaining things to my Falloonian
elders. Perhaps the most difficult is why American homo sapiens
a figure like the one Big Dope calls “The Galilean,” but then vote for this
Donald Trump to be president of an important country.
I’ve quit trying on that one.
There’s another. It involves American homo sapiens
well. Notice I said, American homo sapiens
. I may need to ask your help,
It involves this group of what I can only use the American term
“deadbeats” to describe. They are known as the “British Royal Family.”
They don’t work.
They don't earn.
They don’t, apparently, think before they act.
Well, that last problem may not be confined to British gentry.
Anyway, now one couple among them claims they are going to “step
back” from British royalty.
“Say what?” Oh, excuse me, I sometimes slip into American
idioms. Don’t know why I did just then.
Anyway. What do they mean by “step back”?
The husband is not going to give up his taxpayer-funded allowance.
He’s not going to get a job.
He’s not going to change his name.
He’s not going to put them into a witness-protection type program.
Sounds like all they intend to do is move somewhere away
from parental guidance.
I might can see why the British put up with the antics. It’s
an old habit on their part. Of course they are free, as I understand it, to chop off a few heads if things get out of hand.
I can even see why some American homo sapiens
a bit interesting. It sorta reminds one of cute kitten posts on social media.
What I can’t understand is the obsessive news coverage of their
goings and comings, this and the other siblings in this family.
I'm talking about day-to-day coverage, sometimes minute-to-minute coverage.
In American newspapers.
Aren’t there any cute kitten stories to write about?
