The odd couple

Odd wedding announcement

I have no idea if this wedding announcement is real or not, but it was in the New Braunfels paper back in February and was just too weird not to post. Margaret Bornais and Robert Franklin Schneider don't look too odd (though someone should tell Robert goatees aren't very cool anymore), but if you read the announcement itself you'll see that both the bride and groom are well on their way to Crazy Town.

Lots of couples get married in Las Vegas (Christina and I even thought about it for a minute or two) so I'll let the interesting wedding chapel slide. However their choices of educational institutions is certainly a little off. Margaret attended the J. Grasso School of Thought and majored in art history with a minor in underwater basketweaving. Meanwhile, her new husband graduated from the Lewis Baker Institute of Wild Animal Art and is now a licensed taxidermist. They should be very happy living together in an Idaho commune.

Probably not real, but pretty funny that someone managed to get the paper to run it. Nice work by the editor as usual.

Correction: My mom called to let me know this wasn't in the New Braunfels paper but was actually in the Austin American-Statesman. That makes a lot more sense and also slightly increases the chance it might be real.

As a matter of fact it was posted in the Austin American-Statesman. True? That is only for the great creator of all mankind to decide. If not the violator will surely be punished for the sin of mockery of the holy wedlock.

This announcement was part of a Chevrolet advertisement. The names are those of real people (I know Margaret Bornais), but the details and the pictures are fictitious.
