Why You Shouldn't Get Married Outside in Arkansas

Bride, groom shot at outdoor wedding in Arkansas: "LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - An apparent stranger shot the bride, groom and two other people at an outdoor wedding in rural Arkansas, then was arrested after being chased by outraged guests, a sheriff's official said Sunday.

The wedding was just ending Saturday when the suspect approached with a 9 mm pistol and opened fire, Pope County sheriff's Lt. Aaron DuVall said. No one else was hurt.

About 50 people, including children, had attended the ceremony along Piney Creek north of Dover at a spot the lieutenant said was popular for picnicking and swimming. Dover is 64 miles northwest of Little Rock.

The suspect 'was not associated with the wedding at all,' DuVall said. 'No one knew him.'"

Sounds like the guy may be related to Ernest T. Bass.

The show where he married Barney is a classic.

Ok, guys. Leave us Arkies be. Every state has outdoor weddings, there have been many shootings at weddings, not just in Arkansas. And for your info, I do not believe Earnest T Bass was from Arkansas. Dingwad!

Bunnifoofoo is correct. Ernest T. Bass never lived in Arkansas. Maybe JTD was thinking about Ma and Pa Kettle.
