MAYBE THIS IS WHY I’VE BEEN FEELING SO CHEERFUL LATELY:

If there’s one thing that mitigates the annoyance of having to witness the antics of the current wave of hair-shirt prophets, it’s the hours of harmless fun that their hypocrisy never fails to provide. Only recently, we’ve had Gore’s house to condemn, Feinstein’s jets to gawp at, and now, delightfully, we have Prince Charles’ pies to savor:

Via the London Evening Standard, we learn that the prince who would ban McDonald’s has a few guilty secrets of his own. It turns out that a Big Mac “contains fewer calories, fats and salt than some products in [Charles'] own organic Duchy Originals food range”. The horror!

Mmm. Pie. More on Prince Charles here.
