LONDON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Larry Page, Google's billionaire co-founder, is set to marry his girlfriend, Lucy Southworth, on a tiny Caribbean island this weekend, a source familiar with the wedding arrangements said on Wednesday.
The couple will hold the ceremony on an island enclave owned by Richard Branson, the billionaire owner of Virgin Group, who will act as best man to Larry, the source said.
Way to go, nerd. This probably gives plenty of hope to countless billionaires out there. There is someone for you (we bet Mark Cuban is ecstatic). How awesome would it be to go to an island enclave owned by Richard Branson? We bet there’s hovercrafts and flying casinos and robotic butlers as far as the eye can see.
The Reuters article goes on to say that the actual island for the wedding (Necker island) is not identified on GoogleEarth. Not surprising. All the rich people stuff is off-limits on Google. Try finding the countries Svenborgia and Grenyarnia on any map. Yeah, we know.
Speaking of getting screwed by rich people’s turf wars, MS Word does not recognize the word ‘Google’ (yes, we use Word at the Dish, see we’re pretty much just like you). We think it’s a little childish on Bill Gates’ part. Seriously, Google isn’t good enough to make the cut on Word’s spell check?
And finally, rumor has it that the Clintons will be attending this wedding. Good effort. Why hasn’t the nickname Billary caught on with those two? It’s way better than Brangelina. Maybe it’s because they’re rarely seen together, weird.
