He's Only Writing What You're Thinking

Veiled Conceit, "A glimpse into that haven of superficial, pretentious, pseudo-aristocratic vanity: The NY Times' Wedding & Celebrations Announcements."

This is, hands down, the nastiest, most mean-spirited web site I've ever come across. It's also hilarious and I'm adding it to my regular reads. The site's creator essentially gives voice to what is probably a weekly ritual among the Times' many readers. As he writes:

This blog was started as nothing more than an outlet for the petulant umbrage that most people feel when they read the NY Times Weddings and Celebration Announcements.

Like him, the Weddings and Celebrations sections is one of my guilty pleasures, and I've shared my mixed feelings about the pages before. I'm only glad that so far it seems as if Veiled Conceit missed our announcement in August.
