back to article E-commerce pros tie the knot in Amazon-themed wedding

Weddings already suck, and the tasteful wedding is becoming ever rarer. If the ceremony is not at a Victorian folly that costs more to book than a normal person's annual salary, you could well be in for a different kind of statement.

    Daft !

    I did suggest the registry office/pub route to the father of my my bride-to-be and he was quite receptive to the idea. Unhappily I made this proposal in the presence of his wife and two daughters and we were vetoed within 10 seconds. So with a chorus of 'Yes dear; certainly dear; whatever you say dear' we shut up and did as we were told.

    The bit that constantly amazes me is that some 40 years later we are still married, we even talk to each other now and again !

    "C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell

    They furnished off an apartment with a two room Amazon sale

    The coolerator was crammed with TV dinners and ginger ale

    But when Pierre found work, the little money comin' worked out well

    "C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell

    They had a hi-fi phono, boy, did they let it blast

    Seven hundred little records, all rock, rhythm and jazz

    But when the sun went down, the rapid tempo of the music fell

    "C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell

    They bought a souped-up jitney, 'twas a cherry red '53

    They drove it down to Orleans to celebrate the Amazon anniversary

    It was there that Pierre was married to the lovely mademoiselle

    "C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell

    At least it wasn't a Facebook wedding

    with photos from the wedding night being made public because of a random change of default settings policy.
