The bride adjusted the crystal topknot of her veil. She stared at the the Windsor knot of her groom’s tie as the hypnotist tied their knot. The bride vowed Bill Knot was in love with Naomi (in his poems). The groom vowed Don Knotts was in love with Mary Lou (in Mayberry) and later Ladyfish (in The Incredible Mr. Limpet).
