Well done.  You’ve cast a dark cloud of doom over the future King George VII.  Is it really that difficult to stick to the registry?

We’ve all witnessed toddlers react poorly to gifts that displease them, whether it’s Christmas or their birthday.

Today, Prince George of Cambridge celebrates his third birthday, although this one is a far more toned-down affair than 2013, when the whole damn world invited itself to the party (present company included).

And here we are, wishing the heir well as he rings in year three with a tea party at Anmer Hall, according to People‘s Simon Perry.

Since making his world debut, Prince George has received several gifts ranging from luxurious to downright odd.

How did His Royal Highness react?

  1. “A horse? Thanks…I guess.  What happened to that plane I wanted?”

British Prime Minister David Cameron seems like a decent guy.

Today, Cameron confirmed in a press conference outside 10 Downing Street that as of Wednesday evening, he will no longer be Prime Minister.  Continue reading
