(Newser) – It's safe to say the New York Post is not a fan of America's favorite newlyweds. The paper gave Kim Kardashian and Kanye West what Mashable calls the "world's worst wedding announcement" in its print edition. The piece, which is attributed only to "Post Wire Services," begins thusly:

  • "Two jackasses got married in Italy Saturday. 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."

After another brief paragraph, it concludes, "The republic still stands." But the snarky, disaffected tone belies just how exhaustive the Post's coverage of the wedding has been. A quick search of the paper's site reveals at least 17 pieces related to the wedding, including a look inside the rehearsal, the bachelorette party, and the ceremony itself—along with an equally snarky "toast" to the couple.
