Buck Wolf’s Weird News Central: It’s A Nice Day For A Weird Wedding

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Exchanging vows in front of a fertility statue may leave one couple with their hands full.

Tomorrow (Feb. 6), Buck Wolf – of About.com’s Weird News Central – and his bride will be the first couple to tie the knot at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Fertility Stone in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

The Fertility Stone is an ancient West African artifact that helps women conceive after touching it.

So far, 2,000 women have gotten knocked up after grazing it and now Ripley’s museum is letting couples get married at the stone’s fertile foot.

For $399, lovebirds can get a full wedding package, including music, a justice of peace, and a two-night hotel stay.

Although Wolf is looking forward to his unique marriage ceremony, he’s nervous about the statue’s pregnancy powers.

He says, “If the stone makes my wife too fertile and we end up with octuplets, that’ll be no laughing matter. Don’t get me wrong, one baby would be great, but more than five and my wife and I would have to live at Ripley’s permanently as one of the attractions.”
