I proposed my Russian girlfriend and she said Yes!

For the wedding, my whole family and friends flew over to her home in Moscow. It was a beautiful ceremony, however I did find some things really strange. For instance, the priest never said, “You may now kiss the bride”, but I just assumed it was purely an American thing and didn’t mind. Later during the reception, we were both starving and decided to head over to the buffet to get food. On the way we passed the drink table, where about six people were waiting to get a fruity drink from a bowl. As we passed, they all said in unison, “You may now kiss the bride!” My wife got giddy and gave me a big kiss, which I of course returned. As we walked away I asked, “Why did *they* tell us to kiss and not the priest?” My wife answered, “In Soviet Russia, the punchline tells you!”

Perfect groan material right here. But I love puns and Soviet mix-ups so up you go!
