Valentine’s day engagements are common, but for one couple, it was extra sweet…’n sour.
Kristian Helton proposed to girlfriend Karsyn Long by tucking the ring inside a nugget and that nugget inside a box that read, “Will you McMarry Me??”
Since Karsyn’s favorite food is McDonald’s chicken nuggets, Kristian said it seemed like the best choice to incorporate them into the proposal. Because nothing says “I want to be with you forever” quite like mystery meat.
“I know this sounds bad,” said Karsyn. “I go to McDonald’s a lot and I always get chicken nuggets. I won’t get anything else.”
“Her love for chicken nuggets, I’m sure, is more than she loves me,” said Kristian. “She has devoted her life to chicken nuggets, so that had to be part of the engagement.”
“I put the ring in the chicken nugget box, and I used the chicken nugget box as a ring box,” explained Kristian. “Then wrote, ‘Will you McMarry me?’ in it and she was excited…I think more about the chicken nuggets.”
According to NBC, the two plan to get married next Valentine’s Day. McDonald’s has even said they will cater the event.
Our hope for them is that their marriage stays as meticulously preserved as their McDonald’s food and lasts forever.
