Frogs get married India


You've heard the song, but two frogs really did go a courtin' in eastern India.

The amphibians were married this week in the city of Nagpur as part of a traditional ritual to please the rain gods and ensure a good harvest, Reuters reported.

The unusual bride and groom seemed more than a bit oblivious, but still dressed up for the special occasion, donning colorful flowers over their slippery bodies.

Paint was then dabbed gently onto each frog's head.

The ceremony even ended with a wet kiss following their "I do's."

No word on where the couple plans to reside.
