Via Qwerty: Two Nice Jewish Boys Post Pic Of Their Unicorn Wedding Entrance, Internet Goes Wild

As far as wedding themes go, unicorns have to rank somewhere at the top of the list after drag and before Sir Ian McKellen officiating.

For one gay Jewish couple, the choice was obvious — ride in on a unicorn, blow everyone’s minds. So that’s what they did (which might be a Modern Family reference), and this photo surfaced shortly thereafter:


Just look at that woman’s face on the right. Pure joy. Like all her girlhood dreams all just came true.

But as is almost always the case, the internet took the photo and ran (galloped?), and we’d be remiss if we didn’t give some top-notch captions a proper shoutout.
Here are our favorites:
  • Looks like they have a… stable relationship.
  • In the least derogatory way possible, that is as gay as it gets.
  • Now I want to see a gay Hindu wedding where they ride in on an elephant dressed like a wooly mammoth.
  • “Tonight, we ride.”
  • Did no one else get the Friends reference here? The old lady’s gone! She’s no longer haunting Phobe! She’s seen it all!
  • … so unicorn is kosher?
  • Jewnicorn… anyone? Ok I’ll go…
  • Those are some good looking Jews.
  • Hmm. Kinda thought they would ride bareback….
  • How brokeback mountain should of ended.
  • 50 shades of neigh
  • FAKE! Everyone knows unicorns aren’t Jewish!
  • Is that unicorn horn circumcised?

Did you know that Baha'u'llah uses a "subject of boys" metaphor to describe himself?

The “beloved” (q.v.) in Persian lyrics is, as a rule, not a female, but a young male, often a pubescent or adolescent youth, or a young boy. // (Encyclopaedia Iranica)

\\ For whereas in days past every lover besought and searched after his Beloved, it is the Beloved Himself Who now is calling His lovers and is inviting them to attain His presence. //

“O nosso trabalho transita entre a esfera da ativação da consciência maior e a esfera da purificação dos porões do inconsciente. A ativação da consciência maior é quando você tem acesso à lembrança de quem é você; é quando você de alguma maneira entra em contato com expressões do Real, e experimenta fragrâncias da bem aventurança (amor, paz e liberdade). Mas essa experiência só é possível quando você já purificou em algum grau as marcas do passado do seu sistema, pois é justamente isso que te impede de sustentar o êxtase. Esse é o trabalho de cura e transformação do eu inferior, que tenho chamado de “ABC da Espiritualidade”. Essas duas esferas de trabalho precisam ser contempladas simultaneamente.”

“Nuestro trabajo se mueve entre la esfera de la activación de la conciencia mayor y la esfera de la purificación de los sótanos del inconsciente. La activación de la conciencia mayor es cuando tienes acceso a la memoria de quién eres; es cuando de alguna manera entras en contacto con expresiones de lo Real, y experimentas fragancias de la bienaventuranza (amor, paz y libertad). Pero esta experiencia sólo es posible cuando ya purificaste en algún grado las marcas del pasado de tu sistema, porque eso es precisamente lo que te impide sustentar el éxtasis. Este es el trabajo de cura y transformación del yo inferior, que vengo llamando "ABC de la Espiritualidad". Estas dos esferas de trabajo precisan ser contempladas simultáneamente.”

"Our work transitions between the spheres of activating our higher consciousness and purifying the dungeons of the unconscious. When you activate your higher consciousness, you can access the remembrance of who you are. When, in some way, you come into contact with the expressions of what is real, it allows you to experience the bliss of the fragrance of love, peace and freedom. But this experience is only possible when you have purified the marks of the past in your system to some degree, because that is precisely what prevents you from sustaining ecstasy. This is the work of healing and transforming the lower self, which I call the ‘ABC of Spirituality.’ These two spheres of work need to be addressed simultaneously."

Our goal is to make the mind light, to make our life light. After all, we are seeking to attain en-light-enment, aren’t we?
