Gives a whole new meaning to the term "my husband is a snake..."

Apparently, a woman actually married a cobra in a Hindu ceremony in India today.

The new bride seems very happy, despite the fact that the groom was too shy to attend the ceremony. They used a bronze statue to stand in for him.

The bride described their courtship in this way, "Whenever I put milk near the ant hill where the cobra lives, it always comes out to drink."

Apparently, she and the snake do have some connection: "Bimbala Das [the bride] was ill," Bhoi [the bride's mother] told the local TV channel. "We had no money to treat her. Then she started offering milk to the snake ... she was cured. That made her fall in love."

I'm just wondering about grandchildren.

Just. Wondering.
