Finally...some high-brow entertainment to read. When you consider all of the political arguments since yesterday, that can't be won...this is a refreshing story. Poor bride and groom though!

Ha! But Aaron, don’t you have any fear? You are sooo brave... For the record I love all WI people. (I’m afraid of my Wis friends) They are eye-poppin’ marvels that’s gotta be seen to be believed. That’s a compliment, Wis friends. So Kris J. is sending me off to Pulaski, Wis in a couple of weeks to report. At Pulaski Polka Days, "Polka is the Law". We should organize a bus from Woodbury to support Pulaski. Should be fun. I expect much of the same behavior as above…and MORE (I hope).

Who will tell Woodbury residents that since turkeys are not mammals they can't be pregnant?

Came across this story on a search. And Margaret, sorry missed the "Polka is the law" thing. Beth-Ann, then what do you call a bird that is "with egg"? Honestly, I don't know.
