This September 11th-Themed Wedding With A Twin Towers Wedding Cake And Engraved Box Cutters Will Piss People Off



Are you familiar with the ’70s rock band Devo, the new wave electropunk band behind the synthpop classic “Whip it”? On Friday, September 11th, the band’s co-founder Jerry Casale — an infamous wine snob — got married at the age of 67 in Santa Monica. Rather than having a white arbor and a DJ playing the Cha-Cha slide, TMZ reports Casale and his bride threw an EXTREMELY distasteful September 11th attacks-themed wedding on the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks that took almost 3,000 America lives in Lower Manhattan, Virginia, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

The wedding — at Michael’s Restaurant in Santa Monica, according to TMZ — featured a Twin Towers cake with the bride and groom and box cutters as party favors.  Table seating cards included “Gerald & Krista” engraved in a box cutter. How romantic!

TMZ also adds this:

“We’re told Jerry and Krista’s friends weren’t the least bit fazed because they both have a dark and strange sense of humor.

As one guest put it … Jerry has “real heart as an artist, and is a super sweet guy.”

“Gerald & Krista” engraved box cutter. Ah yes — Having a “dark and strange” sense of humor makes a 9/11-themed wedding less offensive.

Congrats to the happy couple? I wonder if their honeymoon includes a trip to the 9/11 Memorial.

Now whip it good…
