Royally Ridiculous: The Kate Middleton Jelly Bean

As if we all didn't know that the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton long ago jumped the shark into the land of ENOUGH ALREADY:

A guy in Somerset, England, says he has a jelly bean with an image of Kate on it.

And now (do we need to say it?) the curious bit of candy is reportedly going to go on eBay — with bids starting at $1,000.

Hang tough, everyone. the wedding's only two weeks away.

Update at 5:20 p.m. ET. And does the image look like her? Judge for yourself. We've added a comparison.
