British billionaire and Virgin founder Richard Branson is going to be the best man in this weekend's wedding of Google cofounder Larry Page and his fiancée, Lucy Southworth, according to Reuters. Really? Richard Branson? The loudmouth entrepreneur who named his business empire after his sexual status? He and Larry are that tight? Branson over Larry's brother Carl, who is also a successful entrepreneur? Not Sergey Brin, Larry's cofounder, who reportedly had Larry do the honors at his wedding? Our cynical opinion: Branson's status in the wedding party was most likely a quid pro quo for hosting their nuptials on his privately owned Necker Island. (Photo by David Thomson/AFP)
