Royal Wedding Mug Mixup: Idiotic Error Or Savvy Prank

This royal wedding souvenir mug from Guandong Enterprises Ltd. could be either of two things. It could be a Chinese company hoping to capitalize on global royal wedding mania and sell a few overpriced, unauthorized souvenir mugs without doing enough research beforehand. Or it could be something even more interesting: a cynical prank mocking outsourced manufacturing, cultural ignorance, and the globalized economy.

Either way, that’s the wrong prince, and it’s pretty funny.
