London, England In a strongly anticipated move, the entire British Commonwealth voted to bypass Prince Charles in favor of his son, Prince William.
"Charles is just so stodgy, he will have the whole British Empire asleep before he is even half-way through his bloody coronation," spoke a random subject.
"It wasn't so bad when Princess Di was around. But now that she's gone, may God rest her soul, nobody wants Charles. And to top it all off, like he's rubbing our noses in it, he marries Camilla!" said another subject.
Upon hearing the vote, the usually silent-on-such-matters Buckingham Palace sent out a press release:
"The Queen agrees that it would be in the best interests of the country to skip Charles as King and just go straight to William and that she would do her best to outlive Charles just to be on the safe side."
