Unlike most of us who have lives, some people actually cared that socialite Kim Kardashian married her third ex-husband, Kanye West, in Italy this weekend. The world media whipped themselves into a frenzy over every detail of the manufactured-for-TV wedding. But one national publication — the NY Post — covered the wedding with the cynicism and snarky humor that it deserved.
“Two jackasses got married in Italy Saturday,” the NY Post noted in an urgent alert in the print edition on Monday. The report continued: “Sex-tape star Kim Kardashian, 33, wed egotist Kanye West, 36, in a wedding opulent enough for Florence’s Medici dynasty and tacky enough for reality TV.”
A Twitter user Tweeted a photo of the newspaper blurb, which prompted another user to call the blurb “the best article ever published.”
Thanks to loyal reader Felicia Y. for the tip.
