For every bride who has ever thought that their mothers went a teensy bit crazy during their wedding planning process – has your mama ever called in a bomb threat to stop your wedding?
Not even kidding.
According to CNN.com, a Russian woman’s daughter had recently met and fallen in love with a Moroccan citizen, and intended to fly to her fiance’s home country to be married. That didn’t sit very well with Mama Russia – who both apparently didn’t approve of the groom, nor the idea of her daughter permanently residing in another country – who decided her only option was to call the airlines and claim her daughter had bombs to blow up the plane, and should therefore not be allowed through security. I wish I could come up with something fabulous and witty to say here, but I just can’t get past the image of a real-life babushka doll going cuh-razy!
Naturally the mother was found out, admitted to everything, and briefly detained. After her daughter was cleared through questioning… she flew to Morocco. Presumably to never come home after her mother’s stint! A little advice to all you future mothers of the bride? Try chatting with your spontaneous daughter, first.
