6/7/2005: Hindu toad wedding



What we have here is a wedding of toads! Turns out it's a traditional Hindu ceremony which they hope will please the rain gods and end drought. She's marking the toad with vermillion.

Whatever works.

Where do they go on their honeymoon?

that one got a healthy chuckle, nicely executed


Troubleshooter  Tuesday Jun 7 02:05 PM

No sillier than many other rituals out there.

At least their cow thing makes sense.



Promenea  Tuesday Jun 7 02:49 PM

Well toads often appear after a rain so making a few happily married toads just might lead to more toads and well - you get the connection with more toads and rain right?



Troubleshooter  Tuesday Jun 7 04:08 PM

Well, it makes as much since as saying God created the world since we know there's a world.



capnhowdy  Tuesday Jun 7 04:26 PM

They all look stoned to me. Maybe that explains it.



Sweets  Tuesday Jun 7 05:58 PM

And when they are wed, the guy in the black shirt with the red collar yells out... DY NO MITE!



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Jun 7 09:04 PM

She learned that technique at the University of Pennsylvania.

Wait for it.

Wart-on school.

Thank you and don't forget to tip your servers.

To france maybe ?


Heatseeker  Wednesday Jun 8 06:58 AM

They went to France and got legless.



dkb218  Wednesday Jun 8 12:45 PM

Please the Rain God? End Drought? How I wonder does the marriage of fricken toads accomplish that?



wolf  Wednesday Jun 8 01:50 PM

Same way that the rain goes away when you dance and sing the song.

Oh, and if the toads do actually frick, I think you get extra prosperity.



Happy Monkey  Wednesday Jun 8 02:10 PM

You just have to dance long enough, or find exactly the right pair of toads to marry. Keep trying; it will work eventually!



LCanal  Wednesday Jun 8 09:12 PM

According to my Hindu colleagues here it is not a Hindu ceremony but just one of many local beliefs turned to when someone is in trouble or something is wrong such as a drought. It could just as easily been two donkeys they say.

Toads are probably cheaper than donkeys.


Sun_Sparkz  Thursday Jun 9 02:13 AM

my home is in serious drought at the moment.. maybe i should invest in some toads?

i wonder if marrying Fly's or stick insects would have the same effect??

--Or just offer UT and Jacq. a free venue for a down under wedding

Maybe. You already sent your Rain Man, Howard, there, albeit two years too late and he couldn't fix it. SAVE WATER SHOWER WITH A FRIEND. Oops that's the other thread and you said it doesn't work for you!

Something for your bali thread.

Here in the US all you have to do is wash your car.

Or leave your convertible top down or sunroof open when you go inside for a couple of hours.

Works every time.

Unless you're conscious of the effect. Somehow the gods know that.

Kind of like not doing your homework because snow is predicted. Best way to chase a major french toast conspiracy storm away from the entire region.


BrianR  Friday Jun 10 09:51 AM

in MY neck of the woods, all I have to do is mow the lawn.

Yesterday, I had an appt with my blood-sucker...ah, I mean, lawyer, and I forgot. That should not surprise anyone who knows me. However, the Gods wanted me to make that appt for reasons of their own. So, at ten minutes prior to the appt, they rained on me enough to make me put away my implements of destruction, notice the time and make my appt. Five minutes after I get in the office, it stops raining and out came the sun, just like in Florida!

And yes, washing my car will do it too.

Is this what you were referring back to? Not sure I see the resemblance, but it was nice to have an excuse to find that somewhere.


xoxoxoBruce  Friday Jun 10 10:37 PM

No...This.



kerosene  Saturday Jun 11 10:26 AM

Are you still dry? They might take you up on it now.


footfootfoot  Tuesday Jun 20 10:29 AM

Sure make jokes. I thought the bride looked absolutlely radiant.



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Jun 20 06:03 PM

She looks radiant because she's pregnant....it's a shotgun wedding but instead of a shotgun.......Dyn-0-mite.



rkzenrage  Thursday Jun 22 02:10 AM

This whole thing is freaking me out!
Imagine being snatched-up by giant alien beasts & being forced to marry some pregnant stranger in some freakish ceremony miles off the ground on huge leaves while being marked by weird items.... it just goes on, and on, and one..... I wanna' DIE!!!!
