Sweet Proposal Turns into Happy Meal

A woman's boyfriend put an engagement ring in her milkshake, but she swallowed it when her friends challenged her to a Frosty chugging contest.

Whipple’s gut reaction was disbelief, the story being harder to swallow than the ring.
Read the whole thing, and see how many puns you can find. There's a bunch.

Despite all the drama, here's to hoping they savor their marriage as much as she savored her engagement.
