(Newser) – Rush Limbaugh got married over the weekend, and though Gawker wasn't invited to the Palm Beach nuptials, it decided to crash the party anyway. The site paid for a flying banner that read "Rush: Congrats On Your 4th Marriage XO Gawker" (click here to see it)—a subtly snarky reminder, for Rush and especially his new bride, of the radio host's frequent marriages and divorces, PopEater reports.

The message was the result of a contest Gawker held. Though it got even snarkier suggestions ("May this be the 4th happiest day of your life" and "Prescribing you many happy years together," for instance), it opted for the straightforward one because the pilot wanted to avoid anything too controversial, and because "we'll leave staging protests at weddings to the Westboro Baptist Church."
