    Boring weds Bland

    INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) Single life was Boring, and married life will be Bland for this new bride.
    Katie Boring wed Nathan Bland June 12.

    And the Boring-Bland affair was anything but, said the groom.

    "It was great," said groom Nathan Bland. "We had family and a bunch of college and high school friends there, and our reception was at a winery. We all had a great time."

    After the announcement of their engagement was published last winter, the impending "Boring-Bland" merger was mentioned on NBC's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, in a segment where the comedian calls attention to unusual name combinations.

    "It caught us by surprise," Nathan said. "We each got, like, 10 phone calls from friends that night."

    improvement

    It would appear that going from Boring to Bland is an improvement. Now, if they choose to hyphenate their names that would be a big mistake.
    This is my opinion, and change is good.
