The wedding date was set and the groom's three pals - a carpenter, an electrician and a dentist were deciding what pranks to play on the couple on their wedding night.
The carpenter figured sawing the slats of their bed would give them a chuckle or two.
The electrician decided to wire the bed - with alternating current, of course.
The dentist wouldn't commit himself, but wore a sly grin and promised it would be memorable.
The nuptials went as planned and a few days later, each of the grooms buddies received the following note:
WE DIDN'T MIND THE BED SLATS
THE ELECTRIC SHOCKWAS ONLY A MINOR SETBACK. BUT BYGOD, I'M GOING TO KILL THE GUY WHOPUT NOVACAINE IN THE VASELINE!
