Wedding Photos
A couple of weeks ago Stephen sent me a set of pictures showing an 'Arkansas Wedding' (the two pictures on the left). At the time I thought the pictures were funny, but obviously just a joke, so I forwarded them to a couple of friends and forgot about them. But now I see that Snopes has created an entry about them, which made me feel like I should have posted them when I first got them. So anyway, here they are. Better late than never. Snopes identifies the photo of the hillbilly couple as an entry in a Worth1000 contest ('If rednecks ruled the world') and the picture of the 'wedding cake' comes from the Twinkies website.

However, I believe I have Snopes scooped with this fake photo (on the far right) of the newly engaged Charles and Camilla. I know it's fake because that's obviously Charles's head photoshopped onto someone else's body.

I don't care if the photo's aren't real. They're bloody hilarious!
He he he. I'm going to laugh all day now.

Quite right. Enjoyed the chuckle.

I thought they would be fake, thanks for posting them. I thought the pictures were a little too perfect to be real. But they did entertain me for about most of the day!!!

The spud with the mullet looks just like Alfred E. Neuman... What, me inbred?

I have to admit, that's possibly the most flattering picture yet that I've seen of Camilla.

The Arkansas pic is just another rehash of a really old and somewhat racist (in that it promotes anti-hillbilly prejudices) joke.
The Charles and Camilla protrait, though, tasteless as it is, made me laugh so hard I almost strangled myself.

I like the wedding cake. Now I have a hankering for some sweet stuff.

My friend's husband doesn't like dessert-type sweets. His groom's cake was a stacked pile of Krispy Kreme donuts.

Feh, I've seen stranger. To wit: there's one country in northern Europe where the wedding cake is a gigantic deep-fried cookie shaped like a tree!
