All sorts of stuff has been popping up about the Royal Wedding. This has included the Guy’s Guide to the Royal Wedding on the Today Show. Geoff was totally unimpressed when I told him about it and wondered if such a guide would tell him why he should actually care about the Royal Wedding.
Anyway, I find I don’t particularly care about the whole thing too much. I am mildly interested in what the bride is wearing if only because I’m also getting married this year. If she’s following in her late MIL’s footsteps, it will be high fashion, woefully out of date, and laughably tacky in 10 years. I will also, in all likelihood, be totally horrified at how much it costs. I am rather proud of the fact that my dress cost $250.
I find the insane memorabilia craze surrounding the wedding absolutely hysterical. Some of the stuff that has popped up on Etsy and Regretsy is absolutely wild. I think my favorite piece of ridiculous memorabilia so far is this. Can you imagine waking up every morning and wandering into your kitchen to see that? Of course, you could sit in your kitchen and sip your morning coffee out of this as you wake up. Unless of course you like your memorabilia accurate and all…
Of course, I was browsing Boston.com tonight and I came across the following headline: BrewDog releases beer with Viagra. Naturally, morbid curiosity caused me to click. And, yes, folks, this would be THE weirdest Royal Wedding related thing I’ve run across so far. To wit, a quote from the article:
“With this beer we want to take the wheels off the royal wedding bandwagon being jumped on by dozens of breweries,” BrewDog says on its website. “The Royal Virility Performance is the perfect antidote to all the hype.”
Antidote to the hype? Hmm.
Alas, don’t go looking for this one at your local liquor store. It won’t likely make its way to our shores. BrewDog is selling Royal Virility Performance only in the United Kingdom and only via its website, BrewDog.com.
Um, wow. When you put it that way I think that’s about all there is to say. Needless to say, I’ll be asleep at 4:00am on Friday.
ETA: I stand corrected. It can get weirder.
