Sarkozy and Bruni Score Wedding Present from Ryanair


Newlyweds Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni scored a nice little wedding present from the French court, as they’re awarded 60,001 euros (or $87,914.92 with the abysmal state of the dollar) in a suit against budget airline Ryanair. The happy couple sued the company last week over an ad that featured the then-unmarried French pres and his Italian bride talking about their then-rumored impending nuptials. A thought bubble above a picture of the diplomatic duo had Bruni saying, “With Ryanair, my whole family can come to my wedding.” Ryanair has offered to make a matching donation of 60,000 euros to a charity of Sarkozy’s choice. Does a honeymoon count as a charity?
