Photo of the Week: #TRAINwreck

So, this woman was getting married, and as some women tend to do, wanted to go all out for the ceremony, even going so far as to buy a Vera Wang wedding gown to wear.

Trouble was, she felt the dress was missing a little something and then it came to her: a baby!

Oh yes, Shona Carter-Brooks, of Tennessee dontcha know, altered her wedding dress so that her 1-month old daughter Aubrey could be attached to the bottom and dragged down the aisle.


Now, Mrs. Carter-Brooks wants y’all to know that little Aubrey was “awake and well secured on my train.” And when people went all, What the Hell on her ass, she took to Facebook to defend her position:
“Ripley TN we den went exclusive, we made the radio The Official KBLX Fan Page today! People questioning what we do, commenting all negative, and just doing the most. We good though we covered by the Blood which never loose its power. So to the media, radio, news, and whomever else wanting to talk about what WE do here you go: Media Media I see how it works regardless the situation or purpose people gone have something negative to say! The answer is we do what we want when we want long as Jesus on our side everything worked out fine and gone continue to be fine. Our 1 month old was awake and well secured on my train. Most important while yall got ya feelings in us we had our hearts in Christ which covers all!! So keep ya mouths running for it was just that Exclusive and Epic enough we made top blog way from small town Ripley, TN and the social media doing what they do, TALK!!!! Who paid yall for yall comments, none so watch us as we do us! Too bless for mess!! Thank God we aint no celebrities oops got fans, guess we is! Sign off Mr & Mrs Brooks!!
I am trying to figure out which is worse; that this idiot had her child attached to the train of her wedding gown and then dragged her down the aisle, or that she’ll be raising said child in a House of Illiteracy because that statement needs a spell check, a grammar check, a punctuation check and a translation. And quickly.

And I'm not even going to go into the idea that same-sex couples cannot marry in Tennessee, and there are some places where same-sex couples cannot adopt children, but these two fools can marry, and can have children, that they will use as an accessory on a dress!

Oy. My head.

h/t to Pink Is The New Blog for the story.

Bob, I copyedit for a living and one line in I knew there was no understanding what was being said. I just sat back and read the words. As Bugs Bunny often says, "What a maroon!"
