It's a nice day for a Taco Bell wedding

One of my college roommates set out to eat as many half-pound bean burritos from Taco Bell as he could one year.

Strapped for cash and nutritionally apathetic, the dollar menu offering was just the kind of fare he could sink his teeth into over and and over. It was entertaining to watch him add to his tally on a communal dry erase board. It was even more entertaining to watch him sign the wrapper of No. 100 and nail it to the wall in our living room.

To me, that was the behavior of someone who loved Taco Bell.

I was wrong.

People who truly love Taco Bell -- and each other -- get married there.

"Wedding bells meant Taco Bell for Paul and Caragh Brooks.

Customers inside the fast-food restaurant continued to order tacos and burritos as the couple sat Friday in a Taco Bell orange booth and exchanged vows.

"It's appropriate," groom Paul Brooks said. "It's an off-beat relationship."

Yes, certainly off-beat.

Plus, this story spawned this headline, which is certainly open to interpretation:
