Having a Queen Was Stupid; Having A King Is TOO Stupid

“I can’t stop laughing at the fact that we have a King now. ‘Hello I am the actual, literal King. Please bow to me and put a crown on my head.’ It gets funnier and funnier the more you think about it. Having a queen was really stupid; having a king is too stupid. People aren’t going to buy it, I don’t care how good your PR is. … Just stop having a royal family; it’s so dorky. This isn’t Lord of the Rings. They’re like fantasy LARPers running around with swords and scepters and crowns and junk, except fantasy LARP props aren’t normally encrusted with priceless jewels stolen from colonized territories. … For Americans who are having a hard time understanding what their friends across the pond are going through, imagine if Chicken McNuggets died.” (09/10/22)
