A Marital Harbinger?

I attended a wedding recently aboard a yacht. The ceremony and reception took place as we cruised the gentle waters of Newport Harbor.

My seat abutted the rail, so I could look over to see the water. During the vows, I glimpsed the ocean to see a dead fish floating. Then immediately thereafter, a drunken fisherman in a little dingy motoring next to the yacht serenaded the wedding party with his boom box and vocal chords bellowing Heart's "Crazy on You".

I doubt that's how the wedding planner drew it up.
