The Muppets welcome the royal baby far better than I ever could

I think the whole British royal thing is awesome.

Have no idea why. Makes no sense. Doesn't affect me in the least. I'm not British or English or United Kingdomish or whatever the right word is. But – as one who was raised on fairy tales – it's nice to know kings and queens, princes and princesses still exist, even if only in a TMZ sort of way.

So, for whatever reason, I was happy that Prince William and Princess Kate has a baby. But rather than write 600 words or so about the little tyke, it's far easier on my lunch break to rely on The Muppets to congratulate the royal couple for me in the above video.

They can do it far better or more succinctly in any case. Enjoy.
