Looks like a shotgun wedding to me-there's definitely a "bump" isn't there!! I think the guy was being forced to smile because there's a sniper rifle trained on him from 200 yards away!! What I really want to know, though, is who's the guy with the long face over the bride's left shoulder? He looks like he's been hit in the mush by a skateboard!!lol.

I am also a little concerned about the billowing at the back of the man's trousers. Has she sh*t himself-or is it just a humungus fart? I think it's got to be a fart-cos you smile when you've farted, don't you!!

Maybe it's just that he bought his suit from Hyman Jacobs, though.
Just after this photo was taken, a gust of wind caught the groom's lapels-and they both sailed off into the sunset-him keeping his firm grip on her arm. They landed in Barbados three days later-which really pissed them off cos they were supposed to be honeymooning in Frinton-on-Sea and only had 2 10s and 6d between them.

Yes Bert it sounds strange but there are loads on E-Bay
Family Photo Albums for sale on E-Bay & Single Photo's on E-BAy

These searches are UK based if you include the USA there's loads more

I think there mainly from House clearances can't really see Families selling there old treasured photo's!!!
