An unprecedented event occurred at the Comfort Inn Parklands at Calliope last night, where a wedding reception was taking place. Like most receptions, the menu consisted of an alternate drop meal – chicken and seafood. And like all alternate drop meals the waiters were prepared for complaints and the ritualised swapping off plates. That was until one couple didn’t swap, didn’t complain, and simply proceeded to eat their meals.
“I couldn’t believe my own eyes. This is rarer than the planets aligning!” said waiter, Payne Mawaythroughuni (22). “Usually the plates get passed around the table like frisbees. There’s always people who don’t like seafood, and a few that don’t like meat full stop, but to find a couple who just tuck right into their meal is unheard of.”
Racing to find the wedding photographer to capture this rare event on camera, Payne looked high and low with no luck before going out the back to grab his phone. Sadly, by the time he was able to get his shit sorted the couple had finished their meal and he was unable to provide evidence of this hard to believe historical event.
For now, it is and will remain an urban legend but we will endeavour to eventually find proof.
