now, if this isn't

creepy, i don't know what is.

"Marry Our Daughter is an introduction service assisting those following the Biblical tradition of arranging marriages for their daughters"

I'm a little grossed out right now...and reading some of the testimonials, like this one from Jack M.:

"At first we were worried that Janine was too young to get married, but then her new husband bought her a house and a car and jewelry and the money we got let us buy a house for ourselves. Getting out of the trailer park at our age was the best thing that ever happened to us, and it’s all thanks to Marry Our Daughter!"

...makes me even more so.


According to Wiki it's a hoax.

yeh...realized the hoaxness...with a lil help from tamara...

still creepy.

Actually, if you read the About Us part of the website they come right out and say what they are and why they did it.

Nice job and very provocative.

Do you all remember this horrible hoax.

Well, arranged marriages are a part of many cultures and plenty of people choose to marry for monetary reasons. Given the high percentage of marriages here which end in divorce and the advertising/media objectification of teenage girls as sexual means to a sale, I don't know if we have much reason to claim moral superiority.

When I first saw the name of the website, I thought it said MarryYourDaughter and that I thought qualified as creepy.

Hoax or no, I like that in order to find out more info you have to hit the "Propose" link.

well how do you think i got my wife? it's obviously not my good looks....

c-freak...we've met right? howdayathink I got my hot lil mama?

I did catch the About Us section, but if you'll look at the timestamp, you'll notice that it was a little early and I'm not all that "with it" until i've downed at least half my coffee.

that'll learn me...groggysleepyblogy is pretty close to drunkybloggy...

i'll do better next time, i promise.

uh, zra, you drugged me then dragged me off caveman-style thinking you were getting a bargain, remember? ;)
