I'm sure most people on JB know these Mastercard e-mails that circulate, but this one, supposidly being true, really made me laugh.

You gotta love this guy! This is a true story about a recent Greek
wedding that took place in Astoria, NY. It was in the local newspaper and even Jay Leno mentioned it. It was a large wedding with about 600 guests...

At the reception after the wedding, the groom got up on stage with a microphone to talk to the crowd. He said he wanted to thank everyone for coming, many from Greece, to support them at their wedding. He especially wanted to thank the bride's and his family and to thank his
new father-in-law for providing such a lavish reception.

As a token of his deep appreciation he said he wanted to give everyone a special gift just from him. So taped to the bottom of everyone's chair, including the wedding party, was an envelope. He said this was his gift to everyone, and asked them to open their envelope. Inside each manila envelope was an 8x10 glossy of his new bride having sex with the best man.

The groom had gotten suspicious of them weeks earlier and had hired a private detective to tail them. After just standing there, just watching the guests' reactions for a couple of minutes, he turned to the dumbfounded crowd and said, "I'm outta here. You people could stay here and celebrate with that PUTANA."

He had the marriage annulled first thing in the morning. While most people would have canceled the wedding immediately after finding out about the affair, this guy goes through with the charade, as if nothing were wrong.

His revenge: Making the bride's parents pay over $92,000 for a 600 guest wedding and reception, and best of all, trashing the bride's and best man's reputations in front of 600 friends and family members. This guy has balls the size of church bells.

Do you think we might get a MasterCard "priceless" Commercial out of this ?
Let's give it a try...

---Elegant wedding reception for 600 family members and
---Wedding photographs commemorating the occasion.....$4,000.
---Deluxe two week honeymoon accommodations on Mykonos
---The look on everyone's face when they see the 8x10 glossy of the bride and the best man having sex..........Priceless!

There are some things money can't buy, for everything else there's MASTERCARD.

Anybody know of any other good scenario's that could be considered a Mastercard Moment to rival this one?

He had the marriage annulled first thing in the morning.

On what grounds?

According to Google:

The grounds for annulment in New York State include any of the following:

Failure to consummate the marriage
Failure to live together
Marriage less than 1 year
Mutual consent
Already married

and three of those six seem dodgy to me.

I hope I can get a temporary call in NY to pursue that SOB and I hope Dad retains me.

Whats the greek word for whore? Putana is the portuguese word to the best of my knowledge, or are they similar?

Reminds me of the punch line to the Australian wedding reception joke,
"Its OK folks, weve got more beer, weve got more food....and the guy who f*cked the bride has apologised......"

The father of a friend of mine went to a wedding in the UK where the same thing happened. In his speech, the groom thanked the best man for having his wife and said he could now keep her. He was then seen to leave with his mother and, as the marriage hadn't been consummated, it was annulled. The guests were told to take their presents home with them, but my friends father was too embarrassed to pick his up.

This too sounds less than genuine:
" .... as the marriage hadn't been consummated, it was annulled."

Who refused to consummate the marriage: he or she? From what you tell us it was he. How could he use refusal to consummate when it was he who did the refusing? Furthermore he had gone through the ceremony in full knowledge of her alleged conduct, and must be taken to have waived any objection he might have had.

Actually, in Portuguese it is "Puta" ; "Putana" is used by the Italians. The Greek word for prostitute is "Porne", derived from the verb pernemi (to sell), with the evident modern evolution.
