ROYAL WEDDING: Honor the blood of American workers

God bless our founding fathers, who risked their lives to free us from the need to venerate royals and fawn over their $40 million weddings. The blood of American workers is as good as the blood of kings.

    When I came into the office on Friday, one of my coworkers was glued to the TV watching the replays of the wedding. Then an intern walked up to her, shut off the TV and said, “You know we fought a war just so we wouldn’t have to give a sh*t about that family anymore, right?”

    Says he with a French name ! Jealousy ?

    Up the meds.

  4. Pimp,
    The intern had no right to shut off the TV.

    BTW. George III was of the House of Hanover. The current Royal Family is the House of Windsor.

    Yer right….the boss should have done it right before firing the “worker” for not doing any work.

  6. APimpNamedSlickback says:

    Considering that I am the boss, and not only did I not want the royal wedding on, but that the TV is not for watching while on the clock, the intern was absolutely right to shut it off.

    As for the royal family, the crown passed through several siblings along the way, but the blood line is direct. George III’s son, Prince Edward, was the father of Queen Victoria. Victoria was the mother of Edward VII. He was the father of George V, who fathered George VI, who in turn fathered Elizabeth II. Elizabeth II is George III’s great, great, great, great granddaughter. Hence, family.

    But then, why should I know that? As my intern correctly stated, “we fought a war just so that we wouldn’t have to give a sh*t about that family anymore.”

    That would be one fired intern.

  8. madmike272 says:

    Well, you are definitely not a company I would want to do business with.

  9. APimpNamedSlickback says:

    We’re a government service non-profit. Like it or not, you already do business with us, you just didn’t know it.

    And why would I fire the intern?.. for complying with the written company policy, despite the fact that someone from another department came into his department and violated it?
