:Now, I always give my brides white carnations, but I’m out just now an I’ll have to give you one of these pretty red roses.” So saying he pinned the flower on the bride.
But the husband insisted that something was lacking. Stepping to the telephone, he asked a florist to “send over two tulips right away.” Then he sat down to wait. When the tulips came, the Indian Pinned on on his bride and the other on himself and demanded a rose for himself from the justice.

tell.” -- Phoenix
