The Law of Unintended Consequences

Michael Christian and Mel GreigJust when the Kate Middleton affair was starting to get a bit funny, the law of unintended consequences raised it ugly head.

What should have been much ado about nothing has turned into a tragedy, just like a play from William Shakespeare.

The States has a long history of considering Prank Telephone calls to be funny. These gag phone calls have been shown in movies, on television, and even in cartoons. Originally, the recordings of the prank phone call made to Kate Middleton from a pair of Australian shock jocks in Sydney came off as being very amusing.

However, it now appears that one of the nurses at King Edward VII’s Hospital in London committed suicide over the public embarrassment. Even that fact remains uncertain, as the world awaits the results of an autopsy.

Perhaps, it is finally time to put an end to these shock jocks who pull pranks on the unsuspecting public for cheap laughs? After all, you never know how people will react. What you think is funny today, just might end up costing you your job, and even your career, tomorrow.

    Two Australian shock jocks posing as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles called Kate Middleton’s hospital and tricked a nurse into revealing private details about the ailing Duchess of Cambridge’s condition — including that Kate hadn’t been ‘retching’ through the night, the hospital admitted.
