A Peculiar Institution

As we were channel-surfing last night (a glimpse into the wild abandon of our dissolute lives here at Cold Comfort Cottage), we came upon a rather odd program title: "My Big Redneck Wedding."

We glanced up at one another. "Oh, why not."

Our conclusion, one hour later:

Thank you, America, for setting the bar where you have. It puts our own relationship in a whole new perspective.

I've actually been to a country-and-western wedding...which I guess isn't quite the same as a redneck wedding...but still...

For those of you unacquainted with this show, I'll give you a run-down of the episode we watched: hog huntin' and butcherin' the evening of the wedding; a taxidermy theme at the reception hall; bride in a cammo veil; toothless mama yelling "Whee-hee!" throughout the week, sometimes apropos of nothing (I might have missed the part about a still out back); post-wedding mud-bogging and pig-wrestling. Something for everyone!

P.S. an after-thought said...

My son was in his friends wedding, supposedly. Well, they never conveyed the details to him. They talked about "camouflage" but he figured it was just a nickname for the TUX, which is sometimes called a monkey suit. He said, I can't afford to rent a tux. He didn't actually get to the wedding at the court house because of working 250 miles away, but he got to the reception. He was sort of dressed up for that and, ...
they gave him a camouflage shirt to put on. The groom is 23 and supporting 4 kids already, but only two are his.
