"The Daily Show" guest host John Oliver mocked the media’s obsession with the new born son of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

“Finally we have a member of the royal family that actually has an excuse for being a toothless, petulant, useless human being,” said Oliver, who is British, noted Mediaite.com.

"This boy's entrance into the world came with so much pomp and circumstance. It's hard for it not to seem like a royal f*ck you to the other 370,000 babies born that day."

Oliver said of the town crier at Buckingham Palace who announced the birth: "I'm English and I have no idea what that man just shouted."

He also joked about reports that Queen Elizabeth II was "delighted" by the baby news.

"No, the Queen is not necessarily delighted by this because she is not delighted by anything. Her face will always look how it looks, a saggy mixture of boredom and contempt,” concluded Oliver.
