Cartoon text

Ssomeone is trying to translate cartoon captions into English. Here is the cartoon and 2 versions of text. The translation should be moderately stupid (as cartoon captions go), possibly with a hint of being funny. Could you verify that is the case (or not)?





------VERSION 1------ (very close to the original non-English text)

PIC 1
А: Hey, when's the wedding?
B: I don't know. We haven't kissed yet

PIC 2
A: How come?!
B: To be honest, the girl's a bit out of my reach.


-------VERSION 2------(a bit different idea)

PICTURE ONE:
A (the smart alec monkey): "Bet you haven't kissed that girl yet" -
B (the timid monkey with flowers): "No, not yet."

PICTURE TWO:
B (the timid one): "But how did you know?"
A (the smart alec monkey): "She's out of your reach"
