A bad taste: Royal Wedding souvenir sick bags

According to the Daily Mail, graphic designer Lydia Leith has screen-printed souvenir sick bags that are selling for just £3. The first, limited edition, batch of 'Throne Up' bags - perhaps unsurprisingly - sold out almost immediately.

Lydia said, 'I'm a fan of Royal memorabilia myself and I just thought it would be a lighthearted addition to what's available to commemorate the day.'

IMO: Quite disgusting. The groom's father's first wife was well known as a compulsive vomiter, it is said, and that had to do with mental instability and health problems. Particularly as the bride in this case also seems to have weight problems, the whole idea of poking fun at a rather tragic situation is unsavoury.
