Bad news dispatch: get your own Divorce Newspaper

First, there was the Divorce Hotel. Now Rikonshiki, a Japanese company that already takes care of divorce ceremonies, are offering a new product in the form of the Divorce Newspaper. Customised with all the deets of the divorce, you can choose to distribute the printable PDF to your loved ones so they stay informed. It will cost about US$140 (JPY11,220) for a one-sided newspaper or US$200 (JPY15,490) for a two-sided one, which makes it sound like a bulletin. Still, got to love that the header ostensibly reads ‘Happy Divorce’.
