A Scottish couple said they spent $1.56 on their wedding, which involved a volunteer minister and a pot luck reception. Georgina and Sid said the buck-and-a-half they spent on the bride’s second-hand dress was the only money they spent on their recent wedding. They held the wedding on their property with a volunteer minister and guests were asked to bring food for a picnic reception in the barn behind their home. Georgina’s aunt baked the three-tier wedding cake free of charge and her father, Harry, entertained the guests with his saxophone.

Clive Saleman received a letter at his home in Oakura, New Zealand. It was addressed to “the occupier” of a nearby streetlight. The letter threatened that power could be shut off, which at first worried Saleman — till he realized the letter wasn’t sent to him and it was from a different power company. The company that provides power to the streetlight later admitted it was an “automated administrative” error. Yeah, the letter was supposed to be sent to the nearby ‘Yield’ sign.
