Twitter user, Dan White, parodied weddings being held during the pandemic by sharing an invitation from a couple named Erica Fartlander and Dustin Ween, who in the card has insisted on “keeping our date.” The invitation reads, “F*** COVID-19, We’re keeping our date!” The rules include, “No masks allowed!” Because the couple wants “to see everyone’s beautiful mouths.” Sounds like a party?

I find, “we want to see all your beautiful mouths,” and “taking lots of pictures with grandparents in case something happens,” equally disturbing in different ways pic.twitter.com/pl5Y58zzfv

This is the most selfish announcement I've seen all day. Her last name is embarassing for sure. In the end they will be having mass funeral after that infested wedding. It can & should wait. #covidwedding #Fartlander

If you carefully look at the names on the card, Erica Fartlander and Dustin Ween, were not a dead giveaway, there are other explicit clues too at the invitation card. Media reports pointed out that the couple pictured on the invitation is the first clue that the card is fake. The image is a stock photo from Mixbook, a design company that sells wedding invitations, calendars, and other creations. Commentators on social media had a lot of fun with the names on the fake invitation.
People Had Quite A Fun With the Names
Imagine the years of torment having the surname of Fartlander. Wishing the years away to find the man of your dreams, to one day marry him and take on a new identity. Only for that identity to be Mrs Ween 😂 #Fartlander #Ween pic.twitter.com/ImxyIvN9Lj
