The traditional matrimony industry isn't always as mutable as you'd like. That's where two broads from East Point, GA (it's in SW Atlanta*) decided to make a difference. Kristen and Maria Palladino had one devil of a time getting everything lined up for their nuptials and decided that others may also need a point in the right direction. To that end, they created Equally Wed, a web-zine dedicated to the gay marriage niche.
A professional competitive eater named Hall Hunt decided that you cannot stop being who you are even on your wedding day. He married a 25-year-old named Emily Wright and, in a tip of the cap to his part-time vocation, they had a wedding cake eat-off. And for extra strange love, the two invited competitive eating champion Joey Chestnut to enter the fray.
In some places, it is customary for the bride and groom to exchange wedding and/or engagement gifts. But all these guys with their monogrammed letter openers, Waterford salad bowls, and coupons for snuggles and car detailing got nothing on this fellow from the Show Me state. In Missouri, a man gave his bride a winning lotto ticket.
By now, anyone remotely interested in hearing the Mel Gibson cuckoo bird taped phone conversations has gotten an earful of a crazy, abusive rant (if, indeed, we're hearing what we think we're hearing, sorry for the CYA moment). The details, I'll spare you, but many people find it shocking (I saw a severed finger once, so not a lot shocks me). And, irrespective if the punching in the face part is true, this kind of thing could land a guy in jail in France. The Parliament has outlawed mental violence.

A woman from New Jersey picked up a man in her car and began performing a sex act on him (you have exactly one guess which one) and they crashed into something or other. The car was then set afire and she decided to tell Johnny Law that her ride was taken from her at gunpoint. But police are good at figuring out obvious lies and busted her. She should have followed this guide to car sex.
Everyone has sent a text message, perhaps amorous in nature, and re-read it after it made its way into the electronic communication soup. Did you fat-finger a word or two? Did T9 predictively text mangle your words? Once, I ended a text to a platonic friend with "I love you," which is way more embarrassing than saying it as you hang up the phone. I had to write back immediately that I was on a very powerful cough medication. But inadvertently sending a spicy little note to someone... can you imagine the embarrassment?
Lots of people out there find their mothers quite meddlesome when it comes to dating. If stand-up comedy is to be believed, many of these people belong to a particular ethno-socio-religious group. Maybe a group that refers to smoked salmon as Lox. Sure, other cultures do this but outside of Russell Peters they don't have much in the way of a stand-up comedy voice. At any rate, it looks like a mom has decided to drag her son, grinning and bearing, into the world of Web 2.0 dating. PLUS Genetic Sexual Attraction in the Aimee Sword case.
As you likely know, men eat steak and women eat cucumber sandwiches. Dudes and chicks have a hankering for different foods, many studies explore why. Part of the problem is the work of Hollywood's ad wizards and the other part is the disintegration of the family. But food preferences appear to be different in other parts of the world. Why?
As you're probably aware, a number of kooky couples have recently thrown their weddings in retail locations or restaurant chains. Wal-Mart held a contest. A couple did it themselves in a Home Depot. And Taco Bell and TJ Maxx also made the list. But there are worse (and in some ways even awesomer) places to get hitched.
