Bao Xishun, 56, a 2.36-metre (7-ft, 9-inch) herdsman from China's vast Inner Mongolia region, was carried to his wedding on the back of a mobile yurt pulled by camels at the Genghis Khan holiday resort on the grasslands near Erdos city.
Hundreds of people, some travelling for hours, turned up to see Bao wed saleswoman Xia Shujuan, a mere 1.68 metres (5 ft 6 inches) tall and just 29 years old.
Now, he does realize that he's doomed to a life of freakish Honey-Do Lists, right?
"Honey, that ceiling fan needs to be replaced. Can you reach up there and do it without getting up from your chair?"
"Honey, that cat is stuck on the roof again. Can you reach up there and grab him without fully extending your arms?"
"Honey, while you're up there, can you bend down and clean out the gutters?"
"Honey, can you change that lightbulb in the hall? With your teeth?"
Besides basketball and changing lightbulbs, at what can a man of his stature succeed? Can you help me translate?
