First U.K. queer couple walks down aisle; society still intact

by Jeremy Hooper

A lesbian couple, Grainne Close and Shannon Sickels, have become the first queer duo to get quasi-hitched under Britain's new law allowing for same-sex sorta marriages. The civil partnership law went into effect today in Northern Ireland, will be implemented tomorrow in Scotland, takes hold in England on the 21st, and will be the way of the land in America when porcine mammals take to unexpected flight.

According to the AP, invited guests attending the affair were greeted by uninvited Christian evangelists shouting such sentiments as, "You need to turn yourself away from your sinful lifestyle. You're an abomination before God." As for God himself, we hear he couldn't make it to the soiree, though he did send a divine Espresso machine in his absence. Suck on that, Evangelicals.
