        That 'come hither' look.

In Sandıklı district of Afyonkarahisar province, there is a tradition
that has lasted for many years.  The latest victim of this tradition was
Niyazi Sivrikaya the evening before last.  After his wedding ceremony,
Sivrikaya's friends came to the newlywed couple's house at midnight.

The groom's eggs-istential moment.

The friends forced Sivrikaya to come out of the house, put a scarf
on his head and made him wear a skirt.  Sivrikaya was made to sweep
the ground and eggs were cracked on his head.  He then cooked the
eggs for his friends to eat.  Next, Sivrikaya had to dance to the music
of a 'darbuka'(sort of like a bongo drum).  After eating spicy baklava,
the new groom was beaten with fists on his back and sent home.
