Silly Sunday, Wedding Edition

Silly Sunday is hosted by Sandee, of Comedy Plus.

Silly Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs.  The rules are simple, just have fun.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process.

Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!

The wedding went off beautifully yesterday, in a most lovely church.

Very fancy.

It is official, Uncle P and Miss Eva are hitched.  Grandpa said he thought he'd never see the day.  Everyone is thrilled.

Boudreaux be talkin' to his son Tee, an' Tee done ax him, "Père, what you really t'ink 'bout marryin'?"

An' Boudreaux say, "Tee, dere be many a man say dat marryin' be a real expensive way to get you laundry done fo' free!"

Clothile, she done hear dat, an' she say, "Boudreaux, you allus be talkin' down marryin', you should be ashamed!  You jes' say all dem t'ings 'cause you don' like my relatives!"

An' Boudreaux say, "Mais, dat don' be true!  In fac' I like you mother-in-law better 'n I like mine!"
