When I first saw this photo, I actually thought he was getting married to the cow. Then I realized he was only trying to be romantic in his own “milky way”. A lot of people would do anything to have just the unique engagement photoshoot. From parachuting down onto a rooftop to burying the ring inside a cooked fish, someone is always thinking outside the box. What no one has done, however, is to let the ring sit on a cow’s teat.
This couple from Singapore has been making the rounds on social media following their bizarre engagement shoot . No one’s sure how the whole thing happened, but we’re certain he didn’t go down on one knee, neither did he slip the ring onto HER finger.
The photo was picked up by a closed group on Facebook called, “That’s it, I’m ring shaming”. They don’t make fun of the partners involved or their income. Everyone just tries to get savage and shame all kinds of rings, even the great ones.
They’ll get upset over everything from a too-thin gold band to a long strip of black silky, hair wound around on a lady’s finger (the creepiest thing I’ve seen this year).
The ring itself wasn’t bad. It was a simple silver stone on a gold band. The problem was where it was placed. Apparently, the guy makes his living grooming cows on his dairy farm and he’s not ashamed of his hustle. The cows are a part of his everyday life, so he probably wanted to bring them into the next chapter. What better way than letting a cow be a part of the engagement?
People are not taking this lightly
The members of the Facebook group dished it out in bucketfuls to this farmer. Most of them didn’t realize it was a teat at first. They were thinking of something entirely different, and who can blame them?
“I scrolled by too fast and had to look back at the picture because I legit thought someone posted a picture of a ring on a d**k,” one member opened up.
“My brain did not register this as an udder at first…” another said.
Others found the whole thing distasteful, disgusting, or just plain tacky.
“Shaming the ring and the whole photoshoot,” one member blew hot. “The person is a farmer. Still doesn’t excuse his bad taste. And is this considered a nipple ring?” Yes. That can work.
“This is udderly terrible. Sorry had to go for it. But really this is gross. The ring is a mess of clusters and the band is too thick. Like the person thought ‘how can I make this ring bigger without spending any more money?’” someone wrote.
Other people thought the whole set up was wrong and cruel to the animal. It could have been in pain.
“F***ing gross. This animal does not deserve being abused in this fashion.”
“He probably just shoved it on the poor cow’s udder. It may be a tight fit and the poor thing may be in some pain.” The ring does look kind of tight-fitting.
“He’s really trying to milk the proposal,” another person wrote. This was the most hilarious comment for me.
Whatever the case may be, every couple is weird in their own way, and as long as they love each other, they are good to go. We wish them a happy wedding (preferably cow-themed) and a long-lasting union.
