News, but not the serious kind
So you even rented the BRIDE?
We have this story today that says if you don’t know enough people to invite to your wedding, it turns out you can HIRE total strangers from this Japanese agency who will come and pretend to be your family and friends.
Surely this is another sign of that approaching Apocalypse. In addition to all the other runaway expenses of having a wedding, you can now add $200 a person so you don’t look quite as much like the total loser you really are?
And doesn’t it lead to recurring expenses when you have to bring these people back for Christmas and birthdays and stuff?
What happens if your bride’s REAL friends find out that yours are only temps? They’ll feel like chumps for attending for free, that’s what!
I see so much potential for disaster here…
“Honey, I want you to meet my folks. Well, yes, now that you mention it, I guess they DO look Japanese, don’t they? Gee, I could ask them, but I don’t really understand what they’re saying…..

The bra features a marriage countdown clock showing the marriage deadline set by the wearer and when an engagement ring is inserted between the cups the melody of “The Wedding March” is played to celebrate the engagement.
