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:

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?

Nic: Absolutely.

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!
