Today we can expect the Kim and the Kanye to nuzzle up on their honeymoon in a country known for producing the saddest of sad poets, a lot of sheep, and high instance of liver disease. They've specifically chosen County Cork, which according to an actual Irish person, houses a bunch of surly people who share Yeezy's bravado. Sounds like a perfect type to handle a paparazzi swarm. This should go smoothly.
Not to belittle the country or the county, but we're wondering how much say Kim had in the planning stages. As an LA princess with a history of partying in Miami and occasionally Cabo, she basically runs on solar power. Vitamin D is her drug of choice. Do you know what the weather is like in Cork right now? It's raining. Girl's going to go into withdrawal.
They're supposedly staying at Castlemartyr resort, which (A) is insanely beautiful and (B) pretty secluded from Cork proper, so hopefully they won't make the locals completely irate. But still. It's like Ye said, "Fuck it, we'll go to Cork." And a new motto for the tourism industry was born. You're welcome, Ireland.
