(Thanks to Hee Haw; the TV show, for all you youngsters.)
February 24, 1876
A marriage was consummated in the Mayor’s court room, a day or two since, which was the affaire of the season. The following is a sample of the answers made by the loving couple: Clergyman, “do you take this woman whom you hold by the hand, to be your lawful wedded wife?” Groom, “Kinder think I do.” “And do you,” addressing the bride,” take this man to be your lawful husband?” Bride, “You bet.” When he had gone through the form, the divine told the happy man that he might salute the bride, to which the groom replied “You can if you like, but I be damned if I want to.”
