A Follow-Up Now...

Oh I just love it when something comes along that's so spectacularly awesome that I couldn't improve upon it comedically if I tried.

Turns out the crafty 16 year old Michigan girl who managed to fly all the way to the Middle-East to meet a guy she'd connected with on, was in fact flying there to marry him. So says -- are you ready for this -- the distraught family-members of the would-be groom, all of whom SHOWED UP AT THE AIRPORT TO MEET THE KID.

In an interview, the groom's heartbroken mother said, "She was going to sign a marriage contract as soon as she got here... She wanted to convert to Islam and wear the head covering and live with us and adopt our culture."

These kids. Last year she wanted to go on tour with Fall Out Boy -- this year she wants to live in a war-zone and swear eternal subservience to Allah and her husband.

I just can't get the image out of my head of the family, waiting there at the end of the airport concourse, holding a little sign that says "Infidel."

Maybe they loved her more than her real parents did. Maybe they offered her candy. Or meth. yeah, that's it.
