Prince of Quacks

You knew he was a freakishly inbred tax burden, but I'll bet you didn't know the full extent of Prince Charles' drain on British society. Using public funds from a £900,000 grant, the Prince of Wales has published Complementary Health Care: A Guide for Patients, which espouses the benefits of all manner of quackery including homeopathy and reflexology. Despite all scientific evidence to the contrary, the guidebook also claims that chiropractic can be used to treat asthma, digestive disorders, and migraine headaches. Prince Chuck has been a practitioner of pseudoscientific bullshit like this for years, though no one is certain whether that explains the purple hue of his ears or the abstract expressionism of his teeth. Fortunately, reputable doctors in Great Britain are rallying against the book. I'd say this should be the final straw before Britons go away with the royal family for good, but what do I know? We Americans kicked those nincompoops out of our lives after a few tea taxes, and we don't even drink that crap anymore! More details here.
