American royalty? Only if royal family consists entirely of cats.

July 23, 2013

Ezra Klein thinks that monarchy is awesome, and that the U.S. should have one. I say: Ok, provided the Royal Family consists entirely of cats. The same royal attitude, the same morals, the same level of intelligence, all the entertainment value and symbolism but lower cost. You could even pick the Royals from some expensive unhealthy purebred variety, and then inbreed them further. Though the level of inbreeding royalty subjects itself to would be a cruel thing to inflict upon blameless cats. Still, the servants of the royal family could occasionally let an alley cat into the royal compound. That would provide a nice scandal for the press. and keep the bloodline comparatively healthy.

 Please note, this joke was stolen from Mark Twain’s A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court. It was also brought to mind by Fatihah (@Hijabinist) who reinvented it independently.
