I attended a Chinese wedding feast on the weekend. The meal consisted of 11

Except one – an apple is tied by a string to a long pole and dangled between the couple who
have to work together to bite the apple together. Just as they about to bite it is pulled away
much to the general amusement of the crowd. Eventually they succeed – to great cheers from
