A Very Brief Q&A With The Man Who’s Dressing As A Ninja Turtle For His Wedding
Nic Vargus, a writer for Apple, won the bet of a lifetime yesterday. His fiancée told him that if he could get 100,000 retweets, he’d get to dress up as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle for their wedding:
My girlfriend says if this tweet gets 100k RTs, she’ll let me dress up as a ninja turtle on our wedding day.

As you can see, the tweet has gathered far more retweets than she expected it to. Moral of the story: If your betrothed wants to dress up as an ’80s cartoon character on your wedding day, set the retweet bar higher than 100,000, because the internet is a radical place.
I asked Nic a few brief questions and he gave me a few brief answers:
RVB: Is this seriously going to happen?
Who loves Ninja Turtles more, you or your fiancée?
Me, by a very, very wide margin.
Can I come to your wedding if I dress up as Shredder?
That would be amazing! I have a feeling that our reception might be filled with some crazy characters.
So to speak, bah-dum-pah! Congratulations to you and your fiancée – we hope you have a totally tubular wedding!
