Tiger photobombs wedding pic

'All of a sudden, it came bounding over and right into the shot.'

Andrew and Karma Madgwicks were staring into each other's eyes for a wedding photo when someone else decided to butt in. Banda the Sumatran tiger apparently wanted to see what all the fuss was as the couple posed for their photographer before their reception at England's Paignton Zoo.

Although Banda is (luckily) on the other side of the glass, the photo makes it look like she's cozying right up to the happy couple.

The groom looks like a bum! He could not even shave for his wedding day? Looks like he is dirty with that crap on his face! I bet his mother had to choke back some vomit in her mouth.

I'd be thrilled to have a wedding photo like this one.  Photoshopped or not - who cares.  It's just so cool.
