This is the way Meg Ryan announced she’s engaged to John Mellencamp. Earlier today, The Daily Mail posted pictures of Meg out and about in NYC with a set of wedding-looking rings on her ring finger.

Naturally, some people assumed that Meg and John got married. Meg cleared up that rumor by posting the little illustration above to her Instagram account with the caption: “ENGAGED.” Meg and John have been together off and on since 2011, with a Christie Brinkley break in there somewhere. This will be Meg’s second marriage (her first husband was Dennis Quaid), whereas this will be John’s third.
About that picture, I don’t look forward to sleeping tonight, because I know that thing is going to have a starring role in my nightmares. It looks like it was drawn with the chewed-down nub of a golf pencil on gas station restroom paper towel. What pictures were used for reference? Because I’m seeing less Meg and more Johnny Depp as Edward Scissorhands after a botched hand transplant surgery. And John looks like Thomas Markle with his mouth stitched shut. I’m sure that’s something that’s been doodled on Kensington Palace stationary hundreds of times.
