Overheard on the way to office:
“This must be the shortest marriage in history.
“The two got married during the day. In the evening, during the reception, as the two were standing on stage, the girl ribbed him with a ‘Your father did not have even 300 bucks to pay for your shoes my cousin sisters had hidden in the afternoon!’ Enraged, the boy gave the girl one tight slap, right in front of all the guests!
“Seeing this, the girl’s brothers jumped on the stage and started beating up her husband.
“Then the boys relatives started beating up her brothers.
“Suddenly there was a free-for-all. In the midst of the melee, the boy’s father shouted, ‘We don’t want this girl. My son is divorcing her!’
“Then the girl’s father – not to be outdone – marched into a nearby police station and registered a dowry complaint against the boy’s family.
“The end result?
“The boy did not get to enjoy his suhaag raat. Instead, he, his father and two other male relatives cooled their heels in the police lock-up that night!”
