AA Intervention Needed

Via MSNBC, I found this little gem:

PATNA, India - Villagers at a wedding in eastern India decided the groom had arrived too drunk to get married, and so the bride married the groom's more sober brother instead, police said Monday.
"The groom was drunk and had reportedly misbehaved with guests when the bride's family and local villagers chased him away," Madho Singh, a senior police officer told Reuters after Sunday's marriage in a village in Bihar state's Arwal district.
The younger brother readily agreed to take the groom's place beside the teenage bride at her family's invitation, witnesses said.
"The groom apologized for his behavior, but has been crying that word will spread and he will never get a bride again," Singh said by phone.

You know, Old Sarge has brothers. He even has an identical twin. I can honestly say that there is NO WAY IN HELL that something like this could ever happen.

Yeah, I'm with you. I can pretty well say this would NEVER happen with me.....but it is pretty damned funny.
