Hello,

I'd like to know what 'said deed' means in the context:

Here’s the story in a nutshell – man marries woman but before kissing his new wife, husband pull out his cellphone and updates his status on both his Facebook and Twitter accounts, then he goes on to kiss his wife.

Sounds fun? Well for the social networking geeks who just can’t live without a single moment in their life not posting tweets or updating their Facebook profile this could sound like fun. But what about the woman? When asked why he did the “said deed” right after they are wed, right there on the altar, the man, who goes by the name Dana Hanna by the way said that he’s got so much family and friends following his day-to-day updates on both Facebook and Twitter. In fact, those people found out about his engagement with his wife through Facebook.

Thanks in advance,

"said deed" means the action already mentioned above. It need not have been placed in quotation marks in my opinion.

In this case the said deed is the husband's use of his cell phone before kissing his wife during the marriage ceremony.

Lest you think "the said deed" is some kind of idiom, or that this usage of "said" necessarily refers to an action, I'll add that "said" as an adjective can modify almost any "previously mentioned" thing. It's often found in legal documents and police reports.

The said vehicle
The said perpetrator
The said sum of money
The said conflict of interest
The said altercation

It's something like saying, "The above items will be exempt from the new tax."
