Sheer Marketing Genius

Roommate recently forwarded me this article about a couple who had their wedding at Wal-Mart.

Romantic, right?

Anyway, this is my thought: How could this not make the most awesome reality show ever? Think about it. Trap 10 engaged couples in a Super Wal-Mart for 48 hours. Give them a Wal-Mart appropriate budget, and tell them they have to host their wedding there, using only things they find in the store, in 48 hours. It has all the great elements of a good reality show: Sex! Drama! Crying! Cheap fried chicken!

Wal-Mart marketing department: Call me. I've got another hour of admin law and my creative juices are flowing.

How public—like a Frog—
To tell one's name—the livelong June—
To an admiring Bog!
