Love is a many-splendored thing. A weird, weird, many-splendored thing.
We've covered geek proposals and wedding announcements here in the past, but this one -- this one is the most elaborate and strange of them all.
The setting: a bar in Changchun, China
The unsuspecting girlfriend: Zhu Wenjing
The guy in the full-on Predator suit: Zhao Ming
OK. So here's what went down. Zhu Wenjing gets to the bar and is unexpectedly surrounded by the following -- seven people dressed as Star Wars characters, Bumblebee from Transformers, a StarCraft Marine and a Protoss High Templar.
Did she run screaming into the night? I would have! But, no. Instead, that's when the Predator rolls up with flowers in hand.
The Predator takes off his mask and reveals that he's not a horrible-looking alien but, rather, Zhu's boyfriend of four years, Zhao. Which was probably quite a relief, because so far this whole thing sounds like nightmare fuel.
That's when Zhao pulls out an engagement ring and proposes. Miraculously, Zhu says yes.
And thus ends the weirdest engagement in human history. So far, anyway.
