Is hockey commentator Don Cherry heading to the royal wedding?

No, but it was a funny April Fool’s joke by the news aggregator website National Newswatch.

First thing I thought when I read that – what horrible jacket and/or tie will he wear?

The Daily Mail was in on the action too – reporting Kate Middleton was spotted buying baby clothes. They even took photos of a Middleton lookalike checking out a onesie.

    It was such an effective April fools joke because it is precisely something that Harper would do.

    I nearly fell off my chair when I read the NationalNewswatch blurb. My reaction was that this would make the Canadian government and Canadians look like country bumpkins and reinforce the British people’s view of Canadians as colonials.

    Harper still just might do something really silly on this matter!
