Great place for a wedding!

A couple in America have had an unusual start to married life - choosing to get hitched in a public toilet.

Lovebirds Jennifer Cannon and Doy Nichols from Lexington, Kentucky got married in a New York restroom as part of a publicity stunt for Charmin toilet tissue.

The company hosted the event in their "Charmin Restrooms", the Big Apple's only free luxury public bathroom facility.

Jennifer wore a gown fashioned from glue, tape and Charmin Ultra Soft and Ultra Strong toilet tissue.

"I'll probably get a lot of jokes for the rest of my life," she said.

"Had a lot of people saying if you start crying you know where to find the toilet paper."

The pair, who had never been to Manhattan, entered the contest after deciding an all-expenses paid trip and wedding was worth the ordeal.

Groom Doy Nichols was sold on the idea once he saw the toilet paper dress.

"I seen a picture of it on the internet, of what the dress could look like and I thought it was very, very beautiful," said Mr Nichols.

The Nichols plan to renew their vows in a more formal ceremony next year.

I'd like to see her offer to hand that dress down to her daughters...

"come on, you can alter it with a couple of Post Its and some kitchen roll..."

Let's just hope they don't end up a couple of loo-sers, sorry - just couldn't resist it!

No problem ripping her dress off when they got to the honeymoon suite then and a good job it didn't rain

Indeed, with all those tiny elephants she would have had a stampede on her hands!

(or have I got the wrong advert...)

Marriage should be (and, indeed, used to be) treated with some degree of seriousness. Now it seems to can get married one day, divorced the next ready to marry again in a few days time. I used to think this was the prerogative of "celebrities" but, no longer.

The state of matrimony is being yet further degraded by things such as this.

I hope the toilet paper had already been used so as to match the contempt they seem to be exhibiting in this vulgar display.

One sees more than a few of similar "News" items these days. Is this what people want to know about? More like the News of the World than the BBC I know and love.
