Ricky Gervais Rips on the Royal Wedding Festivities...and David Beckham, Too

Wondering why Ricky Gervais wasn't invited to Duke William and Duchess Kate's nuptials? Wonder no more.

Never one to shy away from a barbed comment, the outspoken comedian couldn't help but to offer up a few jokes regarding the big day via his blog.

"I sent Prince Harry a text today offering to gag up his best man speech. (True.), " Gervais wrote. "He said he was fine. Hmmm? If I hear he's done any holocaust or famine s--t I will sue obviously. I also reminded him it wasn't fancy dress."

And that was just the beginning...

"On a serious note; I really like Harry," Gervais went on. "I like William too and really wish the happy couple all the best, as I would anyone on their wedding day. But...really. Enough already. Who are these f--king mongs from all over the world camping out for f--king days to get a 30 second glimpse of two people from 30 yards away? Christ. Still, mustn't grumble. I suppose everyone gets a day off."

And then it was time to take a crack at David Beckham (well, sort of).

"Everybody was saying that David Beckham has started to look like me," Gervais said. "I was flattered until I realized that my name was somehow being used as an insult. (F--k it. I'm still taking it as a compliment.)"

Gervais then posted a photo of himself with the caption, "Here he is looking great."

Perhaps the Hollywood Foreign Press Association should give this funnyman another shot.
