Jesse Tyler Ferguson leads the charge to personalize same-sex weddings for the court's nine justices.

While Ireland just celebrated gay marriage last week, the United States Supreme Court is a little further behind. To humanize the case, and prevent SCOTUS from making a truly embarrassing decision, Jesse Tyler Ferguson of Modern Family came up with a brilliant idea. Together with his advocacy organization, Tie The Knot, Ferguson is encouraging gay Americans everywhere to send the Supreme Court invitations to their gay weddings. His dream is grounded in his long-held belief that people still open their mail.
For the project, Tie The Knot enjoins readers to submit details of their gay wedding to Knot’s site. Knot will then sum up those details and print them on beautiful paper invitations, to be later delivered to the Supreme Court. The more submissions they get, the more invitations they’ll make, the more annoyed Scalia will feel. Victory.
Ferguson made this hilarious video with Funny or Die celebrating the project (below). At this point, Tie The Knot isn’t asking any of the justices for a gift outside of their approval (although honestly some Crate and Barrel dishware would be great. Maybe a potholder?).
