Just when you thought that this otter eating sour watermelon was going to be the greatest image of 2013 along comes this masterpiece. The picture of three newly engaged friends surrounded by eight companions who are excited for them and one girl (bottom left) who simply does not give a damn popped up on Reddit over the weekend. 

Even if (which seems to happen on a weekly basis now) this pic turns out to be another Reddit hoax I like to think the lone dissenter captures the very spirit of so many of us when we lose friends in to a bizarre bridal vortex.

According to HuffPo the multiple engagements in the picture are all the result of 'engagement season'. Some weird new jig Americans have cooked up to describe the period between Thanksgiving and Valentines Day when a significant portion of lucky (depending on how you view the institution) ladies get propositioned with marriage. 

On the plus side it must be interesting for our friends in the US to have a season they dread more than a long, dark winter. I say we all commit now to not letting this become a thing here.

Because the thought of that makes me want to do this...
