There's also a huge crowd outside City Hall, cheering each newly wedded couple, handing them flowers and throwing rice as they walk down the steps. It's so beautiful to watch. I love my blue state.

I don't think the girl dancing behind the couple and their son knows she's on camera.

Hahaha one of the new couples with three kids, the older sister pointed at the younger brother and said he likes Twilight. Way to sell out your brother!

I ought to be down there cheering them on, but instead I'm in my warm robe, drinking coffee, with a pug asleep on my lap. But I'm there with them in spirit.

WooT! ^__^

Good times are good!

This is what moral evolution looks like, kids. Glad someone brought a camera.

That all cheerfully noted, I still really don't get the rice thing.

Why rice, why throw? What this is, I don't even...

This has always confused me but somehow never enough to ever bother googling for an answer.

Anyone? Some animistic thing? Paganistic throwback perhaps?

Thanks, That makes more sense to me. As in "some".

/Still filing 'rice throwing' under "people are weird".

Rincewind53: Dan Savage's family is adorable


Totes. Thanks for sharing that. Dan's 'Savage Love' column is still the first thing I hit up when I pick up a Georgia Straight newspaper and I'm very happy for him, his family and all the other families like him on this most auspicious and long sought day.

Not sure which is making me happier at this moment the thought of all these newly married couples plighting their troths en masse with such obvious love or the thought of Frothy Santorum somewhere in his basement curled up into a fetal ball sobbing uncontrollably.

Their both so good it's hard to choose.

The Santorum bit has me cackling like a witch.  :-D

I love the juxtapositioning of the one of the two brides in two white dresses beside the one w/ two brides in snazzy suits.

Military couple are cute too. That hat is way stylin'.

To be fair, Seattle City Hall is a beautiful new building

which can be dusty, I understand

Pathetic. A celebration of moral depravity with the full support of government in direct violation of the First Amendment. We're shredding the Constitution and dancing while this once great country burns.

Pick up your guns, boys and girls. The Democrats are just getting warmed up.

Yes, it's a lovely new building. I was going to make a reference to clogged HVAC filters, but decided to go for the dusty old building meme. Tried and true.

I hope they fully undress before consummating. It is wicked hard to get a seed-stain out of a tuxedo jacket...I've heard!

The first two women married were hitched by Judge Mary Yu. No, it's not a Fark joke.

And the Seahawks are up 38-0 at halftime at home against the Cardinals. It's a wunnerful week to be in Seattle.

No, but it makes you bad if you want prevent them from getting married. I think the thought of eating pussy makes a lot of gay men gag.

I don't understand why same sex marriage is even discussed. The arguments don't make sense.
