I didn't get round to posting this for Valentines Day. Will try to bump it for next year's.

From Emma Blair's first novel "Where No Man Cries". Glasgow around 1922:

Rosemary stared at the long ribbon flowing across the floor and said men must have far bigger bladders than women to be able to pass as much water as Angus had just done.

The streaming pee reminded Angus of an old Scots custom which he now told her about. He felt he had to say something this was the first thing that came to mind.

According to tradition if a couple were to join hands, jump over a stream and on landing proclaim themselves man and wife then this was as binding the eyes of God and the community as if they'd been legally married in church.

Hearing this, Rosemary came straight to his side and took one of his hands in hers. Nodding towards the still flowing pee she said that if that didn't constitute a stream she didn't know what did and would he marry her here and now please?

They had to run to catch up with the pee. Jumping over it they declared they took one another for spouse.

I doubt Blair made all of that up.

And specially for this year's V-Day:

How about a disposable penis?
