Western tourists renewing vows unwittingly receive malediction in Maldives


A foreign couple who believed they were renewing their marriage vows in a quaint, local-style ceremony in the Maldives were in fact being verbally abused by locals for LOLs. Police in the Maldives are launching an investigation.

"Instead of words of blessing, the celebrant calls the couple 'swine' and 'infidels' in the local language," reports the BBC.

Boing Boing moderator Antinous offers to abuse anyone in Quenya or Klingon for half of whatever the Maldivean pranksters charged.
(thanks, Antinous)
