Matt Johnson's in-law questionnaire: the answers
Questions for Matt Johnson:

Are you going to wear white?
some.

Is there an eccentric family member I can look forward to meeting?
many.

Are you saving it for the wedding night?
i'm actually saving "it" for the 10th anniversary. then i know it will be special, and that jackie isn't just trying to "get some".

I know you and Jackie have a non-denominational household, but seeing as you are marrying a Heeb, I need to feel a few things out.

I am going to do a bit of word association here, so bear with me and try to be honest. What comes to mind when I say the following words?

-bris
ouch
-kishke
hunh?
-ballabusta
pat
-knish
