The royal family as the mob


There's lots of blogging going on about why people (especially guys) in this country should get up to watch the royal wedding.

There have been accusations of chick TV and tea party (I refuse to capitalize it) members generally disavow the whole royal family thing.

But think about it for a minute.

We guys love "The Godfather," "Goodfellas" and "Casino" – big mob movies, full of murder and intrigue and mayhem.

Well, forget the mob. This Royal Family puts La Cosa Nostra into the low minor leagues.

In its heyday, the mob whacked other bad guys. In its heyday, the royal family has whacked entire countries.

The mob has bloodlines that can be traced back 200 years ago in Sicily. The royal family has bloodlines that can be traced back to 826 A.D. That's 826! A.D.

The sons of mob bosses follow in their father's footsteps to be a gang leader. The sons of the royal family follow in footsteps to become King of England.

Mob bosses have lieutenants who carry pistols and drive big cars. The royal family has thousands of soldiers who ride big horses and carry gleaming swords complete with chest armor.

The mob was headquartered in Italian social clubs and strip joints. The royal family is headquartered in palaces and castles.

People call mob leaders "boss." People call the leaders of the royal family "Your Highness."

The mob is worried about law enforcement. The royal family is exempt from law enforcement.

The mob has money buried under a tree. The royal family has The Crown Jewels in the Tower of London.

There you go, guys. Watch the mob at work 3 a.m. Friday morning.

As far as I know there has never been a Prince Guido. Hope you enjoy the happy event.
