Let’s say you found yourself at Wal-Mart one day, and at the end of one of the aisles, you spotted Kate Gosselin. What would you do? Would you run speedily in the other direction? Would you throw a can of soup at her and then duck behind a paper towel display?
Or would you run over to her and trail her for the next seven days because you just wanted to be around her that badly?
Obviously, you would throw the soup. But some marketing genius is banking on the fact that instead, you’d want to attach yourself to her hip for a week: Royal Caribbean cruise lines has come up with the Kate Gosselin Cruise Boat, upon which cruisegoers get to meet, greet and mingle with the horrific mother of eight for a solid seven days.
According to the cruise’s website, the week-long entrapment with Gosselin includes the opportunity to brunch with Kate, go to a charity dinner with Kate, and (surprise!) buy a copy of Kate’s book, which you can then read on the cruise.
The ship sails from Ft. Lauderdale on August 12, ladies, so get your tickets while you still can.
