My Father’s Father’s Father’s Car Was A Jaguar Who Danced With The Prince Of Wales

Ya, so I was going to write something yesterday about the rank stupidity of these news pieces about how Barack Obama’s ancestor was a wigmaker or whatever, and I was going to say that for a republic, the US sure takes a mighty interest in the blood lineage of its statesmen. And then I was going to add, but hang on: aren’t these news stories just PR-generated fluff on behalf of companies looking to attract people with with more money than sense? And then I thought, nyeh, I won’t bother. Then I come across this, in The Daily Mail. Apparently Victoria Beckham’s great-great-great grandfather was a close friend of Karl Marx. ‘Out of Your Mind’ can now be added to a very long list of heinous things for which Marx is partly responsible, including the Khmer Rouge and the Stalinist terror.
