Self-absorbed culture

Life sized wedding cake statue

Photos like this one from a CNN.com slideshow reveal the depths of craziness that our society has sunk to in pursuing our own glory. As you can see, this woman had a life-sized statue of herself made as her wedding cake.

The artistry is good, but the fact that it was done is appalling. I hope they haven't made plans for their 10th annivesary yet. Somehow I kind of doubt that this level of self-adulation will contribute to a lasting marriage.

Narcissus didn't even come close to us.
