A man in cheshire has married his carpet at a short service in the local registry office. The Rug, named Phyllis, was given away by a local weaver. When asked why he wished to marry a carpet the groom Michael Zwernanzwered, a Polish national didn’t understand the question and so did not answer it. Speaking on behalf of the carpet the weaver, known as Seth, said that this was an unprecedented opportunity for a piece of household furniture to live a normal human life and that we are in no position to judge either bride or groom. Phyllis was attended by four cashmere rugs and the Best Mat was
a Turkish parlour rug called Dennis.
