US city Norlgat Carpetsalsa is voting tonight on legalising same socks marriage despite fervent opposition from some quarters.
It's the thin end of the wedge, said Senator Barking Fruitilli. If we allow people to marry wearing the same socks, what next? They'll want matching cardigans; sweatshirts where the text is only readable when they stand close together; shell suits of the same colour.
But others say it is about time same socks marriage was celebrated.
So what if a couple wants to get married wearing the same socks? asked Rev Fatswallah P Dinglebutt. It means they have to stand very close together: that's romantic. I can't see what the objection is.
