Local News Metaphor of the Day
It comes to us courtesy of NBC4. In a routine story about that evergreen local news topic, fires during weddings, reporter Michael Flynn gets a little poetic:
"We have to marry this afternoon," he said. "This won't stop it. We have to marry."
And marry they did, hoping that from now on the only flames in their lives are feelings in their hearts. The couple said their vows a few hours after the fire.
Coincidentally, the exact same metaphor may be used in stories about STD scares and white guys on the "down low."
