The groom's response
Mary Elizabeth Allison Gallup and Dr. John Michael Yanni Garber were married at First Methodist Church on September 16 in an evening ceremony. The Bride said the Groom looks in the dark.
The Groom is Dr. John Y. Garber; street name, Hunk-of-Burning-Love. His mother and sons prefer not to have their names published. His dog is Fluffy. The Groom’s other relatives are Adam and Eve, and the Bride’s relatives go back even further. In college the Groom graduated in the top 99% of his class. He is a professional humorist, taxidermist, astrologer, Palin advisor and liar. He has accomplished nothing in the first half of his life, plans to double that in the second half, and triple it in the third half. His name is mentioned by Neil Shusterman in EVERFOUND, by Joseph R. Garber in WHIRLWIND, and by his pastor in frustration. He denies all rumors of movie offers, positive paternity tests, or having participated in the Ada lynching.
