On the eve of Valentine's Day, I almost missed this fabulously romantic Odd Spot from Thursday's Age:

An Arab ambassador has called off his wedding after discovering his wife-to-be who wears a face-covering veil is bearded and cross-eyed. He sued for the contract to be annulled and also demanded compensation for clothes, jewelry and other gifts he had bought for her.

Not very diplomatic or politically correct in my view. After all, he could just as easily bought her a pair of dark glasses and a razor!

The end result of that was the marriage was annulled, but his gifts - I think totalling $125,000 - were not refunded or given back.

Tee hee
