As if we all didn't know that the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton long ago jumped the shark into the land of ENOUGH ALREADY:

A guy in Somerset, England, says he has a jelly bean with an image of Kate on it.

And now (do we need to say it?) the curious bit of candy is reportedly going to go on eBay — with bids starting at $1,000.

Hang tough, everyone. the wedding's only two weeks away.

Update at 5:20 p.m. ET. And does the image look like her? Judge for yourself. We've added a comparison.
