Tie The Knot

Hang On, We'll Import A Bride For You

Government officials are importing 250,000 brides for frustrated lovelorn bachelors in Serbia.
Social services chiefs are already in talks with neighbours like the Ukraine, Moldova and Russia and with some Far Eastern countries. Zeljko Vasiljevic, secretary of state for social policy, said: "There are 250,000 unmarried young men in Serbian villages who would like to get married but have no women to marry."

FOOTNOTE: Here comes the, er, import.

I am not quite sure what to say here ... I would be worried about the safety and mental state of all parties involved.

I would be interested to see how this all plays out. Sounds like a plot for a reality TV show. Enjoy your Yukon trip - and please don't feed the bears!

Hmmm...250,000 brides for 250,000 brothers...doesn't have quite the ring of 7 brides for 7 brothers, does it?
