See What Happens When You Take Things Out of Context

No. I mean, for reals! Watch this shit.

Via Jezebel

If you hadn't heard, there's a slightly enormous kerfuffle unfolding across the pond, after two-time Booker Prize winner Hilary Mantel called Duchess Kate Middleton a "shop-window mannequin" with a "perfect plastic smile" and no personality. That rumbling you hear is one million royal-obsessed biddies spit-taking their PG Tips all over the divan. Horrors! But she's so...nice! Only a monster would think critically about something NICE. Mantel's comments, of course, were actually just a small part of a much, much longer, extremely nuanced and measured speech about Anne Boleyn and the Queen and the weight and the weirdness of monarchy. But no matter. SHE'S OBVIOUSLY A JEALOUS BITCH.

Yet another reason to support the abolition of all monarchies. They're a useless anachronism, and result in television stations like E! trying to convince the world that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West should be considered American royalty. If this is the best we can do, I recommend a revolution as soon as possible.

Tamayn, you can't get rid of the British Royals. Without them, who'd by Hello magazine?
