The 10 Most WTF Gifts Given To Prince George Last Year

Sometimes, at the end of the day, I look at the enormous mess my kids have made of their toys and I feel a profound sense of despair. But then I read things like the Telegraph‘s list of the most memorable gifts given to Prince George over the past year (out of the 706 gifts he received total!) and I have to stop and thank my lucky stars that I’m not the poor peasant servant tasked with looking after all this loot.

Prince George Will Be Baptized In Some BS Replica Gown, Not The Gown That Every Other Royal Baby Has Worn

Prince George, or “Georgie” as he is now being called, is slated to be baptized which means (aside from Eve Vawter and I prepping snacks for the hopefully televised ceremony) that George will don his first dress! Baptismal gowns are all the rage among royal folk, or rather one gown in particular that royal babies have been wearing for 167 years. Too bad Prince George won’t be permitted to wear that one. More »
