The new royal baby should be named "Heir Bud: Marma-Duke of Cambridge" in honor of his grandfather's favorite film series.
When he is a teenager and gets caught drinking underaged, the tabloid will read "Heir Bud in the Club Gettin' Tipsy"
A few weeks ago, I was listening to an episode of This American Life that was exploring coincidences. There was someone talking about how their friend would find coins in their shower that must have fallen off the skin of the bather. The friend had never heard of this happening. But on the next day, he was astonished to find that it had happened in his own shower. And then, Ira was trying trying to find other people who have this same experience and couldn't.
Not only does this happen to me frequently, but apparently there was a dude in New Zealand in the early 20th century who was arrested for vagrancy and when they cleaned him off, found coins in his beard that fell into the tub. The coincidence here -- he had the same first and last name as me, both of which are not that common. This American Life should have called in the experts.
Furthermore, I listen to Garrison Keillor almost every Saturday night while trying to figure out where my place is in a world where Mark McGrath is a cruise ship captain. Highbrow + Lowbrow = Unibrow I guess?
