The Best Thing About The #RoyalBaby Is Twitter's Reaction

Kate Middleton has had her third child, a boy, and the world's press has gone into meltdown. The baby boy was born at 11.01am this morning in the Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, in central London, weighing 8lb 7oz, Kensington Palace announced on Twitter.
The as-yet-unnamed male child is the Queen's sixth great-grandchild and will be fifth in line to the throne. She is said to be "delighted" at the news, the Palace continued.
While traditional media organisations might be taking an earnest approach in their coverage, focussing on Middleton and the child's good health (all of which is, of course, wonderful news), thankfully the good people of Twitter are providing some much-needed entertainment with their dry British humour. Because, ultimately, woman have babies every day, as Private Eye famously reminded us the first time around.

Many people pondered what Kate and William might call him.
Others drew attention to all the people, namely, the government, who would be grateful for the timing of the baby's arrival.
Others were just bored of the whole thing.
