If this doesn't make for the PERFECT METAPHOR, then nothing does: During a report on KIM KARDASHIAN and KANYE WEST'Sengagement, MSNBC accidentally cut to the wrong footage.
Instead of a video package on Kim and Kanye, they showed surveillance video of a guy accidentally walking off a subway platform and falling onto the tracks. The caption at the bottom read, "Kimye Engaged."
(Check it out here. It's pretty much a guarantee that either Kim or Kanye . . . or BOTH of them . . . are going to end up feeling like this guy when the relationship ends.)
