Divorce-O-Grams: The New Spam?
Salon has an interesting story about the rising prevalence of “divorce announcements” coming from average couples seeking to make their entire address book aware of their impending split. How Hollywood! Seriously, it used to be that only glamorous movie stars headed to divorce court let “the public” know about the sad end to their perfect marriage. Remember how heartbreaking it was the day Tom Cruise split from Nicole Kidman? Weren’t you glad to know ? We were, on account of they’re famous and glamorous. But as for marriage updates from Sorority Sister Sue and Cubicle Mate Cathy, that just seems a little TMI, thanks. After the jump, see what you might be getting in the mail if we don’t nip this trend in the bud NOW.
