Meghan and Harry’s Kids Get Royal Titles

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s two children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, now have royal titles despite the couple’s exit from the British royal family.  A rep for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex referred to Lilibet as a princess for the first time Wednesday while announcing the 21-month-old’s recent christening.  “I can confirm that Princess Lilibet was christened on Friday, March 3, by the Archbishop of Los Angeles, the Rev. John Taylor,” the spokesperson said.  The royal family’s official website also plans to update the siblings’ titles from Master Archie and Miss Lilibet to Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, according to People.  The magazine reported that the titles will be used in formal settings and not in everyday use.  Archie, 3, and Lilibet became a prince and a princess, respectively, when their grandfather King Charles III took over the throne upon Queen Elizabeth II’s death in September 2022, thanks to a rule established by King George V in 1917.
*********Lillibet was disappointed!! “I want to be a DISNEY princess!!!!”

You Can Get The Ted Lasso Experience

Ted Lasso fans can now stay in one of the show’s most beloved spots, thanks to Airbnb.  The travel company is revealing exclusively via PEOPLE an upcoming opportunity to stay at the show’s iconic Crown & Anchor Pub — known as The Prince’s Head, in real life — this October.  The establishment is located in Richmond, London, and is just a few steps from Ted’s (Jason Sudeikis) apartment on the equally adorable Paved Court. “The traditional English pub is a gathering place for football fans and locals alike, and the unofficial meeting place of AFC Richmond players and coaches on the show,” an official release states.  Annette Badland, who plays the Crown & Anchor’s no-nonsense landlady and head bartender Mae on the hit Apple TV+ series, is hosting the experience in partnership with Warner Bros.  She tells PEOPLE that the space in which guests will stay is “actually the pub” itself converted into a cozy and “extraordinary” themed sleeping area.  “If they feel like reenacting scenes or watching the television or playing darts or doing a bit of karaoke maybe they can, and [playing] the pinball machines,” adds Badland of how those staying “can be really immersed in” the experience of the show.  “They’re not separate in any way — they really are in the bar of the Crown & Anchor,” she continues, teasing, “And there might be biscuits.”
*********Just remember: In Britain, “biscuits” aren’t biscuits, they’re what we call “cookies!!!”
*******There’s nothing like the smell of cigarettes and stale beer in a real English pub!!!!

Hugh Grant Suffers Set Meltdown

Hugh Grant admitted to misdirecting his anger and flipping out at a “nice local woman” while filming “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.”  “I lost my temper with a woman in my eye line on day one,” he told Total Film magazine.  ”I assumed she was some executive from the studio who should have known better.”  Grant continued, “Then it turns out that she’s an extremely nice local woman who was the chaperone of the young girl.”  He called his temper tantrum “terrible” and explained that his episode ended with “a lot of groveling.”  “I did a Christian Bale,” Grant joked, referencing when the fellow actor was famously caught on tape aggressively yelling at a “Terminator: Salvation” crew member in 2009. Afterward, Bale apologized profusely and called his actions “inexcusable.”  Grant stars in “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves” alongside Chris Pine, Justice Smith, Michelle Rodriguez, Sophia Lillis and Regé-Jean Page.

Keanu Reeves Has His Own Fungicide

The Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology created a new, remarkably effective fungicide and told Phys on Monday that the chemicals “kill so efficiently that we named them after Keanu Reeves because he, too, is extremely deadly in his roles.”  When asked about these “keanumycins” in an “Ask Me Anything” thread on Reddit, which Reeves used to promote his latest entry in the “John Wick” film franchise, the soft-spoken movie star shared nothing but praise — and a cheeky suggestion of his own.  “They should’ve called it John Wick…but that’s pretty cool…and surreal for me,” said Reeves wrote in the thread. “But thanks, scientist people! Good luck, and thank you for helping us.”  Keanumycins, produced by soil bacteria, have been shown to kill fungal infections in humans while leaving healthy cells alone, according to a study in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. They’re harmless to plants, but lethal to fungi, and could have applications in the agriculture and health care industries.
********This fungicide could prevent a fungus apocalypse, as in “The Last of Us!!!”
********The original name of that show was “A Fungus Among Us!!!”
******We always thought Keanu was a fungi!!!

Prince Andrew Angry About Coronation Outfit

Prince Andrew is “furious” over his brother’s decision to “disrespect” him by banning him from wearing the flowing ceremonial velvet robes of the chivalric Order of the Garter at the Coronation. The Mirror recalls the standoff between Andrew and the royals at the funeral of Prince Philip, when Andrew sought to wear his Vice Admiral uniform, even apparently going to the extent of getting a new one made by his London tailor. He remains a Vice Admiral because of his service in the Royal Navy.  Andrew was stripped of his royal roles as the Virginia Giuffre case unfolded, but retained some military associations, and so is, strictly speaking, entitled to wear the military uniform at official events.  During the queen’s funeral, Andrew also wore a black suit, while his siblings all wore military uniforms.  The latest row involves his position as a member of the Order of the Garter, an elite club of just 24 members, based on chivalric principles, nominated by the monarch. It comprises former prime ministers, senior royals, and other worthies.  Andrew, who paid a settlement to Giuffre but has denied remembering ever meeting her, was not expelled from the order by his mother. However, the royals have sought not to highlight his continued membership. His attendance at Garter events has been problematic ever since—just last year he was pulled from a public procession of members at the last minute.  Garter members get to wear extravagant headpieces topped with Ostrich feathers, ermine collars and flowing velvet robes at pantaloons on so-called “collar days”—important dates in the royal calendar (of which the Coronation is, of course, one.)  Now, The Mirror says, Charles is contemplating telling Andrew to just wear a dark suit on his big day.  Their source said he had been “left completely in the dark” over his role and required dress.
***********Since he’s in the Order of the Garter, why not make him wear garters.. and nothing else????

Beer Pulled For Having Too Much Alcohol

A popular Australian beer is being recalled by regulators for an unusual reason — it contains “excess alcohol.”  Food Standards Australia New Zealand said Watermelon Sour Beer from Your Mates Brewing Co. contains “excess alcohol” as a result of a secondary fermentation.  The agency said the beer, sold at stores across Queensland and online nationwide, could pose a risk of illness due to its alcohol content.  Secondary fermentation is the aging period following the initial fermentation and is sometimes used to remove excess yeast from the beverage. An unintentional second fermentation can produce more alcohol and carbonation intended by the brewer.  “We’ve only seen this occur in a handful of unrefrigerated cans so far, but we take the safety of our mates and quality of our beer very seriously, so we’ve jumped onto this with the authorities to execute our first-ever product recall,” Your Mates Brewing said in an Instagram post.
********Wait. There’s such a thing as “too much alcohol??” 

Pet Bird Found On Top Of Ferris Wheel

Employees inspecting a giant Ferris wheel in South Carolina ended up rescuing a lost cockatiel found perched on the ride about 100 feet above the ground.  SkyWheel Myrtle Beach said in a Facebook post that workers were completing their daily wheel check climb to inspect the ride when they spotted a cockatiel hopping around on the ride about 100 feet in the air.  A worker held out his arm, and the cockatiel came to him and allowed itself to be carried back down the ladder to the ground.  The cockatiel was passed off to another worker, whose mother was able to connect with some friends who remembered seeing a flyer for a lost bird.  It was identified as Joel, a bird missing for over a week. Joel was reunited with his owner, SkyWheel officials said.

Woman Has Great Time On Other’s Money!

A Florida woman — who authorities say chartered a private jet to fly her cross-country with some of the more than $1 million in federal coronavirus relief funds that she fraudulently obtained by using stolen identities — pleaded guilty Monday, federal prosecutors said.  Danielle Miller, 32, of Miami, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to wire fraud and aggravated identity theft, according to a statement from the U.S. attorney’s office in Boston.  Miller used the identities of more than 10 people and used fake business names to apply for and receive more than $1 million in Economic Injury Disaster Loan funds as well as Pandemic Unemployment Assistance and related unemployment benefits from July 2020 to May 2021, prosecutors said.  Miller possessed counterfeit driver’s licenses in the victims’ names but bearing her photograph. In one case, she accessed a victim’s online Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles records and used the personal identifying information to open a bank account in that person’s name, prosecutors said.  Miller used a counterfeit driver’s license in August 2020 to arrange a Gulfstream private jet charter flight from Florida to California, where she stayed at a luxury hotel under the same victim’s name, prosecutors said.

The Rudest Things You Could Say To A Stay-At-Home Dad



  1. “So what’s your real job?”

There are a couple of issues here: One is the assumption that a man must work outside of the home. And two is that the question devalues the tireless job of being a primary caregiver.  Stay-at-home dad Kevin Laferriere, comedian and co-creator of @thedumbdads, said he got this question a lot when he would take his kid to story time or a class at the YMCA.  “Sure, I’d get it mostly from an older generation who maybe assumed I was between conference calls or had to stay home today because I need to change the alternator,” Laferriere said. “Don’t make assumptions of dads with that ‘you must be lost’ to be here attitude. Normalize stay-at-home dads. Also, I have no idea what an alternator is.”  Other similar questions: “Are you looking for a job?” or “When do you plan on getting a real job?” This assumes a man wouldn’t choose to be a SAHD and must just be biding his time until he’s formally employed again.  “The idea that I’m somehow stuck in this position or I didn’t choose to be a stay-at-home dad is an incredibly unfair assumption,” comedian Evan Berger, who co-hosts the “Dumb Dad Podcast” with Laferriere, told HuffPost. “I cherish and adore getting to spend this valuable time with my children that I would have otherwise missed. Sure, my co-workers put stickers on me and leave toys and food all over my work-space, but I get along with them really well and I can take as long of a lunch break as I want.”  When SAHD David Bacque, the man behind the Instagram account @life_with_benjamin, gets questions like these, he responds: “No, I’m not looking for a job. Being home with my kids is the most rewarding job I’ve ever had,” he told HuffPost.

  1. “Dad’s babysitting today?”

News flash: A dad who is spending time with his own children isn’t “babysitting” — he’s simply being a parent.  “It blows my mind that this is a thing that ever gets said. And in my experience, it has usually come from older women,” stay-at-home dad Matt Beauchamp, blogger at Dashing Dad, told HuffPost. “Dads don’t babysit, they parent and need to be treated as an equally contributing parent.”

Laferriere said he’s gotten this question a handful of times himself.  “First, it implies the baby isn’t even really mine in the sense of caretaking. That if something were to go wrong, I’d need to ‘ask mom’ about it,” he said.  “Besides, babysitters get paid,” he continued. “If you’re going to pay me, then yes, call me the babysitter and let’s discuss rates — and vacation days!”  Similar phrases like “daddy daycare” are not only “annoying and trite,” said stay-at-home dad Jay Deitcher, but can also be hurtful.  “Because no matter how much someone sees you caring for your kid, they still view you as a secondary caretaker,” he told HuffPost. “They also view you as fairly inept, even with proof right before their eyes.”

  1. “What do you do all day?”

Sure, a question like this could be coming from a place of genuine curiosity about what a SAHD’s daily life looks like. But the subtext is that being home with the kids is easy and/or dads are lazy. Martin said he gets asked this question “far more than [he] expected” since transitioning to being home full-time with his daughter.  “The implication seems to be I sit around and watch TV all day while my daughter plays in the corner. Sure, I get a 60-90 minute break while she naps in the afternoon, but I find plenty of days where I work harder now than I did in my previous life as a journalist,” he said.  Even when the question is well-intentioned, it can “lead to insecurity and self-doubt,” Martin said.  “I find it easier to deal with now and usually just ignore it, but the first few months led to some soul-searching. As a white man, I’m not going to pretend I’ve faced much discrimination in my life. But seeing a dad as the primary caretaker is difficult for some people to absorb and accept.”  Another variation on this: “Must be nice to play video games all day!” As Berger said, the bar is “so incredibly low for dads these days,” that this is what people assume is happening when a father is the one at home.  “Not only do I spend time helping and playing with my children, I feed them, nap them, change their diapers, and focus on keeping the house in order. I shop for groceries, take them to doctor appointments etc.,” he said. “And when everyone is asleep at the end of the night I’ll put on a show and fall asleep on the couch 10 minutes later.”

  1. “I’d feel like less of a man if I didn’t work.”

Toxic masculinity strikes again. It’s high time we stop measuring manhood by the size of the paycheck Dad brings home.  “The value of a man isn’t established by the job he does, and you’re not ‘less of a man,’ for raising your kids,” Beauchamp said. “It’s the hardest and most important job you can do.”  Stay-at-home dad Mostafa Hassan, the creator behind @arabbabathatsme, said he’s had to contend with comments like: “You aren’t a man if you aren’t providing for your family.”  “Would you rather my wife give up a successful career and my children and family go without because I have to end up making less than her?” he told HuffPost. “Or better yet, shall I just let my small children fend for themselves alone while I go off to work to appease a societal idea?”

  1. “So, who takes care of the kids?”

Stay-at-home dad John Marshall was at the grocery store with all four of his kids in tow when a person sarcastically asked him if he was “giving mom a break?”  Marshall replied, “No, I stay at home with them.” Then the person said back: “So, who takes care of the kids?”  Is it that hard to believe that a man is more than capable of caring for his own children?  “The only thing I could think of at the time was to squint at them in bewilderment until they felt uncomfortable and left,” Marshall said.

  1. “Wow, looks like Daddy dressed you today!”

These kinds of comments may seem harmless, but they only perpetuate the inept dad stereotype.  “The implication here is that either Dad has no idea what he’s doing or that it’s a minor miracle the kids are dressed at all,” Beauchamp said. “The trope of clueless dads needs to be retired.”

  1. “When’s a good time to reach Mom?”

Stay-at-home dad Hank Pabley encountered this question while trying to schedule an appointment for his son.  “Our doctor’s office called me last week, and the nurse said they tried calling my wife but couldn’t get through, so they wanted to know when is a good time to reach her to schedule an appointment,” he told HuffPost.  “I told them I am a stay-at-home dad and she can schedule the appointment with me. And after scheduling it, they said they’ll send the appointment confirmation to my wife’s email and phone number. Really?? I literally told you I’ll be scheduling and taking him to the appointment.”  “I think there can be a perception that men don’t do enough with their kids. And maybe every household is different, but I do all the cooking, cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, meal planning, etc. while also taking care of my son and working 20 hours a week remote. I am capable of scheduling an appointment,” Pabley added.

  1. “The dads are over there watching sports.”

Some women may assume men just aren’t that interested in talking about parenting stuff. As a result, moms may unintentionally exclude stay-at-home dads (and working dads, for that matter) from conversations these men would genuinely like to be a part of.

“Probably the most hurtful thing is when there is a conversation about parenting going on, and me and my wife are in the circle, but when people talk, they only make eye contact with my wife because they see her as the main caretaker,” Deitcher said. “At one party I was at, there were a bunch of moms having a conversation about parenting that I was interested in, and one of them looked at me, like I was lost, and told me that the dads were on the other side of the room talking about sports.”  SAHDs may also be left out of playdates, mommy-and-me classes and other fun kid events.  “Playgroups can be cliquey for everyone, but there are certain people who just won’t see men as part of the crew,” Deitcher said. “They will share all the coolest events in the community with each other while you listen in, knowing you have nothing planned for the weekend and are gonna be bored out of your mind with a kvetchy kid. I’m sure this happens to people who aren’t dads, too, but it always feels crappy.”

  1. “I bet your family’s finances took a hit.”

This comes from the outdated sexist belief that a man will always outearn a woman when, in many cases, that’s just not so. (And why is another family’s financial situation your business, anyway?)  “We both have master’s degrees, but my wife easily doubles my salary,” Marshall said. “But when she was the stay-at-home parent, we weren’t financially great, but we made it work because staying at home with the baby was important to us. I told my wife after the first one was born if we have another, I’d like to be the stay-at-home parent, and we made it happen. We couldn’t be happier with this setup, the kids are doing great, I love being home with them, and my wife cannot cook or clean to save her life anyway.”
