Royal Wedding Tat Watch – The Sick BagFebruary 28, 2011
This made the news last week, but I thought it was worth commenting on anyway because I continue to find and be alerted to all kinds of nonsense tacked on to our impending royal communion between the heir-in-waiting, Prince William and ‘commoner’ Waity (no longer) Katie. From now on I will bring to you these fillers of landfill under the banner of Royal Wedding Tat Watch. If your gag reflex is getting plenty of exercise from the build up of this auspicious event and you don’t want to vomit in polite society, you need a sick bag – of course!
It’s going for the anti-royal wedding stance, but is tat nevertheless. Created by graphic designer Lydia Leith, the ‘Throne Up’ bag is in a pleasing retro style with an outline drawing of the couple in that engagement pose and comes in pillar-box red, or royal blue (natch). It’s doing good business right now at only £3 a pop, apparently. Fair play to the girl for seeing an opportunity and running with it. I’m sure it will continue to go well.
As a side note, there’s a beer called ‘Kiss Me Kate’ that will be ready for those thirsty royal watchers come April 29th.
Produced by Castle Rock Brewery in Nottingham, it’ll be elegant, tasteful and British to the core, according to their head brewer. Well, with that endorsement I’d better go and get a six-pack!
