And in an unrelated story, a family of five suffered bloating, drowziness, and lingering flatulence after Thanksgiving dinner at their cousin's house in Eau Claire.

In Wisconsin, only one thing need be served at any wedding reception,
BEER. Yeah, you might get sick from it but not because it was prepared incorrectly.
Nuff said.

They were all 3 days into a 5 day bender. the CDC blamed it on too much ice in the Stab n Kill. Excuse me, the Cabin Still.

Can you say steak tartar?(Raw ground beef with onions) I grew up in Milwaukee, have seen this served at many weddings, and wondered why people eat beef like this when the chances of getting sick are high.

I bet the caterer who supplied the food gets a drop in business after this unless the health department finds that the illness didn't come from the food.

I wish the commentors wouldn't make sport of this type of thing, as these 20 people are probably having a very difficult time, and right here at the Holidays even. This happened to me a few years back, and believe you me, dehydration and excess, ummm, "output" are no laughing matter. Godspeed to those who set out to celebrate a beautiful occasion and were unexpectedly beset by this dread malady.

and I think it's sad that THIS is the only thing that will be remembered about this couple's wedding. I think the whole wedding industry is ridiculous, but what should be a day of happy memories will be lost. Not the most horrible thing in the world, but kinda sad.
