    Wedding wrong? Must be the secret anti-marriage agenda of BoingBoing.

    I found my wedding wrong, too, when it was held on a carrot.

    Honeydew you love me?  Do you carrot all?
    I’m sorry, pumpkin, but I cantaloupe tonight.

    I think I remember this as the setup to a carrot/carat pun in an old Bugs Bunny cartoon.

    Always remember, Frodo, the Ring is trying to get back to its master. It WANTS to be found.

    I’m remembering a scene from The Simpsons…

    At school, the other kids tease Lisa about her vegetarianism.

    Sherri and Terri: “Look, it’s Mrs. Potato Head! She has a head made out of lettuce!” 
    Ralph: “I can’t believe I used to go out with you.” 
    Janey: “Are you going to marry a carrot, Lisa?” 
    Lisa: [sarcastically] “Yes, I’m going to marry a carrot.” 
    Sherri and Terri: “Ooh! She admitted it. She’s going to marry a carrot!”

    It isn’t. The reason being, the country’s full of babies, and they all look the same. But I don’t reckon there’s many crowns. They have this way of being found, anyway. They kind of call out to people’s minds. If you bunged it under a stone here, it’d get itself discovered by accident. You mark my words.

    It’s true, that. How many time have you thrown a magic ring into the deepest depths of the ocean and then, when you get home and have a nice bit of turbot for your tea, there it is.

  9. I found my first wedding wrong, but only in hindsight. I found my second wedding quite delightful.

    The provenance of this article notwithstanding, do I detect an early April Fool’s joke here?  “Ola and Lena”?  Really?  If you’ve never heard of ‘Ole and Lena’, google it.  A carrot on a ring?  Really?

      Interesting point — although if those names are actually common ones (I don’t know that they are or are not) then maybe suspicion based on that alone is premature.

      I thought there might be a hoax/joke in here just because the carrot doesn’t look like it grew into the ring. If it had, I would expect the carrot to grow “around” the ring to some extent, but the ring is appreciably larger in diameter than the carrot… of course, I’m suspicious of everything.

    For my wedding, I needed a carrot AND a stick.

    And now they can control ALL THE CARROTS!!

    it seemed romantic until the part where it passed through a sheep.

    One carrot ring.  Pretty nice, for a farmer.

     Carrots! Foiled in their attempt to destroy traditional marriage!
