Increasingly tedious wedding becoming too bloated to ignore

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with giant, bloated heads
John Shafthauer

Most people aren’t bothered about Harry and Meghan’s wedding. The royals possess more wealth, entitlement, and castles than the rest of us combined. As such, every day is a special occasion for them. And they don’t need super special occasions to remind us how good they already have it.

And yet, as details of the wedding become increasingly tedious, they also become harder to ignore. Which is why nobody can get away from the fucking thing.

Bloated spectacle

Despite the fact that actual news is ongoing, the British media has dedicated itself to regurgitating every minuscule detail the royal spectacle throws up. A selection of this weeks headlines include:

No escape 

In the coming days, 24-hour coverage won’t be enough. There’ll still be stragglers who manage to avoid the news entirely. And that’s why squadrons of crack commando town criers are being dispersed up and down the country.

As such, you won’t be able to take a shit without some bloated pomp-bag jamming his bell through your window and announcing that Prince Harry is getting his nails trimmed.

God fucking save us.
