Quote of the week

Which really should be the quote of last week, since it was in the issue of Entertainment Weekly that was mailed to subscribers last week, and which I didn’t read until today for reasons you’ve already heard enough about.

The topic is the Royal Baby, and due to magazine lead times, they didn’t have the name just yet. Jessica Shaw proclaimed:

At 4:24 p.m. local time on July 22, the Duchess of Cambridge, 22, gave birth to His Royal Highness Prince Something or Other of Cambridge, weighing in at a regal 8 pounds and 6 ounces. (There was no name as of press time, but it’s got to be better than North West. I’m a let you finish, Kanye, but Kate Middleton just gave birth to one of the best babies of all time.)

Best riff on that quote I’ve seen in some time. (And it’s Prince George, as we already know.)

    There are times when the only answer is indifference.

    George is an awful name for a child, even a royal on the dole.

    Then again, as Johnny Cash (quoting Shel Silverstein) used to say: “Bill, George, anything but Sue!”
