Here Is a Video of an Entire Wedding Party Falling Into a Lake


“Honey.”

“Doll.”

“I like you.”

“I like you!”

“No, really, I really like you.”

“I really really like you!”

“I love you, to be honest.”

“Well, I’m in love with you!”

“I want to marry you.”

“I want to marry you today!”

“I want to marry you right now!”

“We’re on a train. Do people get married on trains?”

“No, but this train is taking us to a plane. Do people get married on planes?”

“No, but that plane is taking us to a lake. Do people get married on—”

“DOCKS!”

“What?”

“Docks! Yes, people get married on docks. It’s true. Let’s get married today on the dock! At the lake! The old rickety dock!”

“Uhhh…what about, like, on the beach?”

“No, on the dock! It’s genius!”

“Wait, but—”

“…you don’t want to marry me on the dock?”

“No, I do.”

“I love you.”

“I love you, as I said, but, well, it’s rickety.”

“My grandfather built that dock.”

“Well—”

“I loved you…”

“…”

“…”

“Ok, yes, I’d love to marry you on the dock.”

“WE’RE GETTING MARRIED!”

“Oh my God.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
