Scorpion Queen finds King

Thailand's "Scorpion Queen" and "Centipede King" will tie the knot on Valentine's Day and then consummate their nuptials in a coffin, organisers of the wedding said.
Kanjana Kaetkeow, 36, who entered the Guinness Book of World Records in 2002 for spending 32 days in a glass cube with 3,400 scorpions, has agreed to marry Montri Siangwong, 29, a 2003 Guinness record holder for spending 28 days with 1,000 centipedes, said Somporn Naksuetrong, general manager of Ripley's World of Entertainment in Pattaya.
"The couple met and fell in love when they were touring together after winning their Guinness records," Somporn said.
The couple will marry in Pattaya, 90km east of Bangkok, on February 14. Eight other "special couples" have been selected to participate in the necronuptials, pursuing the theme Till Death Do Us Part.
Kanajan and Montri, at least, have spent creepier nights with less attractive bed partners, organisers noted.
