A new gold standard may have been set for finding the perfect mate: a woman bought her geeky husband a USB wedding ring
. Of her own accord. As a surprise. For serious.
Ray Arifianto is a game developer for Microsoft
, and his bride wanted to show her support for his extreme nerdiness, so she had a ring custom made to look like a USB drive.
No, it doesn't work. (We know, we know.)
But, it does
inspire all sorts of "insert Tab A into Slot B jokes," which is like the whole point of being married, right? Engraved inside the ring are the words "for a lifetime of memories." Ha ha, USB; ha ha ha, memory.
The sweet gesture was well-received and will hopefully have greater longevity than the Zip disk cuff links of yesteryear. Remember Zip disks? Yeah, neither do we.
