TEHRAN (Reuters) - An Iranian bridegroom bit off more than he could chew when, according to custom, he licked honey from his bride''s finger during their marriage ceremony and choked to death on one of her false nails.

The Jam-e Jam newspaper said on Wednesday the 28-year-old groom died on the spot in the northwestern city of Qazvin while the bride was rushed to hospital after fainting from shock.

Iranian couples lick honey from each other's fingers when they get married so that their life together starts sweetly.
