Nuptial Oxmanteau

It was time for the royal wedding—and what should an ox do but be merry? PETA decided to present Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with a unique gift: Merry the Indian bull, whose name is a portmanteau of the names of the happy couple. Unfortunately, we didn’t see him mooing merrily from a gallery as the royals did that patented hand-wave to their adoring public; only a framed photograph is being sent to the couple, who expressed a wish for the day to be celebrated with charitable works. The bull was adopted by the animal rights body after a long ‘career’ pulling carts. As PETA India’s statement says, “Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, known animal lovers, will now have a one-ton bull to call their own.”  Well, quite. It’ll go nicely with the dukedom of Sussex that Harry’s getting from grandmamma.
