If you have to clearly explain that a proposition posted inside your business is not prostitution, it may be time to rethink your strategy. But this is the case for Michael Newton and Johanna Hickey of Beny’s Delice in Fort Greene, who The Local reports today are offering to marry any customer who puts up $25,000. “We’re not doing this for the wrong reasons, it’s not prostitution,” Hickey told The Local. “We’re offering our social strengths as a life companion.” So no sex, but you can eat tons of cake, which is probably the problem with lots of American marriages. See their picture at The Local.
We’re not quite sure what to make of this hot mess of a story, other than it would be amazing to see someone actually put up the $25,000 to call their bluff. Kickstarter anyone?
