A THREESOME

By Neel Anil Panicker

‘So you say the bride is missing, right?’

“Yes, also the ventriloquist.”

‘So, if I understand you correctly the bride whose marriage was to have taken place today as well as this ventri guy is missing, right?’

“Sir, it’s ventriloquist. He is a mimicry artist. He makes these sounds. He is…”

‘Yeah, I know who’s a ventriloquist. So you say the bride is missing, right?’

“Yes, also the ventriloquist.”

‘So, if I understand you correctly the bride whose marriage was to have taken place today as well as this ventri…I mean mimicry guy is missing, right?’

“Ventriloquist, sir”

‘So, are you saying this guy is also missing?’

“Yes, that’s correct”.

‘All right, I get it. Now just tell me is he from the bride’s side, or the grooms’?

“Neither.”

‘What!’

“I mean we had invited him for entertaining our esteemed guests, relatives et al.”

‘Invited? Who sent the invitation___ groom’s or bride’s side?’

“I believe the groom’s side. I mean that’s what we think er… I mean the girl’s side has no knowledge of either such a guy or, such an invitation ever being sent.

‘All this is so very confusing. Anyways, what happened then?’

“Sir, it was around eleven, an hour still to go for lunch and two for the marriage ceremonies to kickstart. Suddenly, someone discovers that both are nowhere to be seen.”

‘By both you mean the bride and this ventriloquist guy, right?’

“Yes, Sir.”

‘Well, that’s quite a confusing state for sure. And by the way, who are you?’

“Sir, I am the Uncle.”

‘Whose__bride’s, groom’s, or the ventriloquist’s?’
