Apologies if you've seen this. Not only fun and therefore eligible for inclusion in this forum - but, IMHO, also well written.

Post Edit: Want More? The website is now up (http://www.weddingdressguy.com ). Lots of links to follow and, at the StarFM site, even audio of an interview. Looks like he will get his wish of a writing gig somewhere - and more no doubt!

I'm still laughing, Rog. Absolutely hilarious and, as you say, well written. I especially liked his reference to living near to IWasEducatedByGeorgeBush, Texas!

The buyer will probably get to be on The Today Show, too.

FYI - This is a two week old story ...AND it is the second time around at the bidding. People screwed him over the first time. Bids got up to and over $15,000 USD (no kidding) because of the media hype, but it was just a bunch of hoopla, and the high bidder reneged.

I feel sorry for 'The Today Show'.
