Angry Guests Put Groom In Coalbin

Coal Train

Coal Train

I ran across this new item while searching and thought it was funny.

MIDLAND, La., April 28,–Walter Eaton, “best man,” and seven other “guests” today faced charges for disorderly conduct following a wedding “prank” last night. When all the guests were seated at the table, the bride’s mother announced that the wedding had occurred five months ago and that the couple had gone to the train for their belated honeymoon. The enraged guests overtook the couple at the depot. Clarence Weidner, the bridegroom, was imprisoned in a coalbin all night and his bride was ducked in a public trough.
