The newlyweds went on a cruise for their honeymoon and found themselves shipwrecked on an island where a tribe of cannibals lived. Nevertheless, the inhabitants were very welcoming. In fact, when they found out the couple had just been married, the cannibals threw a party. They toasted the bride, then barbecued the groom.
