In Royal News

I learned from watching the BBC last night that one result of the Royal Wedding in the UK has been to focus attention on the younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge. The Duchess of Cambridge is, of course, Kate Middleton, now wife of Prince William. Her sister has the horrifying name of Pippa, short for Philippa. One assumes her parents wanted a boy.

If this were a post on MR, it would be titled "The Culture that is Britain".

Hat tip: British comedian Russell Howard, who is sort of a convex combination of Jon Stewart and Jimmy Kimmel with an accent.
