Spoof of the royal wedding

Quoting The U.K. Telegraph:
“It is a worldwide internet hit which mercilessly lampoons the royal wedding, but it has neverthess won an unlikely fan in Prince Harry.

Mandrake hears that Prince William’s mischievous younger brother has been using his Facebook page to share with his pals a three-minute video which features lookalikes of the bride, groom and other members of the Royal family — not to mention himself — breaking into dance as they weave their way up the aisle in a church masquerading as Westminster Abbey.”
Here’s the spoof video:

I still love that clip!

The royal wedding really was inspirational. For a moment, I indulged the fantasy that all of human civilization is not actually headed for an inevitable fiscal collapse driven by entitlement fantasies. It was nice to see the polite side of British society (both the royals and their admirers). But, how much longer before we see violent and destructive entitlement punks once again tearing London apart? Not long. I’m sure of that.

On the surface, it appears as though William and Kate are decent and honorable people who are truly devoted to one another. There is -- at least for now -- every reason to believe that surface impression runs deep. That inspires hope for the future -- even if that hope is fleeting and soon to be shattered by economic reality.

It was nice to escape, even if just for one morning. Thank you, William. Thank you, Kate. All the best to both of you.

Lastly, thank you Harry (and T-Mobile) for spreading some good cheer.
