Meme rings a bell

Sunday Times (Sri Lanka) - - NEWS -

Amidst the pre­vail­ing po­lit­i­cal grid­lock, sev­eral memes re­volv­ing around re­cent po­lit­i­cal events have been float­ing across many so­cial me­dia plat­forms.

One such meme was a mat­ri­mo­nial ad­ver­tise­ment in which the groom was in search of a bride. The ad­vert read as fol­lows: “A groom em­ployed at an Ex­ec­u­tive level is seek­ing for a hand in mar­riage. Di­vorced fol­low­ing the first mar­riage while the sec­ond mar­riage also re­sulted in fail­ure. En­tered into an il­le­gal mar­riage very re­cently and is ex­pect­ing an­other divorce since the ma­jor­ity of his fam­ily are not in agree­ment with the re­la­tion­ship. The bride must not con­verse in English and should al­ways be clad in na­tional at­tire while pro­vid­ing as­sur­ance that she will not chal­lenge him at any point. A dowry of 30 cab­i­nets and 45 cup­boards would be of­fered to the bride who wishes to marry him. The groom is will­ing to par­don those who had com­mit­ted mis­takes”

Based on the re­cent po­lit­i­cal events in the coun­try this ad­vert rings a bell, doesn’t it?
