Throughout history, marriage has held a special place in human society. It is one of the unique links that unites not just the different peoples of the world, but also every strata of society within individual cultures. The rich marry, and so do the poor. Matrimony is enjoyed by the intelligent, and by the very stupid, too.
Although the institution of marriage or some form of monogamy is nearly universal, there are vast gulfs in the way different cultures and subcultures perceive marriage. In the West, by far the most interesting relationships are between the very dumb. Virtually every aspect of these dimwitted relationships–the laughter, the crying, the acrimonious arguments at 2:00 AM on the front stoop–is fodder for a voyeuristic public.
A Florida couple, just starting out on love’s meth-addled journey, have provided fresh swill for the trough. The unidentified man and his intended found a way to share with the whole town the good news of their retarded union.
Wanting to declare his love in writing, but rather than employ a method so prosaic as a note, the retarded Romeo spray-painted his proposal on the garage door of a Lehigh Acres home: ‘WILL YOU MARRY ME ALISON?’ The home was not his own. Alison responded with a spray-painted affirmative.
“The choice of location is appropriate,” says Dr. Emil Haagerdäddi, chairman Emeritus of the University of Kentucky’s Department of Real American Studies and author of Crackers, Rednecks and Hicks: White Trash Culture in These United States. “I surmise that the young man’s home–most likely his grandmother’s trailer–is in some way an unsuitable canvas for his purposes.”
Unions between idiots are generally encouraged by society, as it keeps feeble genes within certain communities, and limits their introduction among the normals. Haagerdäddi claims that these fears are overblown, since “These mouth-breathers often lack a chromosome or two, rendering them incapable of reproduction. They’re essentially mules with opposable thumbs.”
The Doctor cautions, however, that “When they are able to breed, they breed like rabbits.”
