I was half expecting to read something about a lawsuit in there somewhere.
 
2005-02-10 08:25:01 PM  
Classic.

Stupidest proposal EVAR!
 
2005-02-10 08:30:52 PM  
I agree! That proposal sucked!

It would have been much better if the boyfriend was a cop and pulled over the girlfriend to propose.
 
2005-02-10 08:32:23 PM  
I was thinking the cop pulled her over and then she offered oral as a way of getting out of the ticket, then they fell in love and the cop proposed to her, breaking the boyfriend's heart.

So I was a little disappointed when I RTFA.
 
2005-02-10 08:32:33 PM  
yeah, high-stress situations are always best for catching someone off-guard and making them make a stupid mistake

that said, i wish them well
 
2005-02-10 09:32:55 PM  
If I had arranged something like this, the cops would probably do it and then bust me on an outstanding warrant I didn't know I had.
 
2005-02-10 10:13:28 PM  
We had a stripper that pretended to be a cop once. That was much more entertaining.
 
2005-02-10 11:46:57 PM  
I think that was the oddest use of a cliche headline i've ever read!

"I have a fear of getting in trouble. It was pretty nerve-racking," she said with a laugh. "It was very Ryan. ... He likes to be funny."

Isn't there a word to describe somebody like that? Jackass, asshole, cockinass, something along those lines?

Toleraen: "It was very Ryan. ... He likes to be funny."

Yep, just as "funny" as sleeping with his secretary. What an ass.

This reminds me of those stories about guys that dress up like cops and make their cars look like patrol cars. Then they stop female drivers and frisk/grope them.
 
2005-02-11 04:59:10 AM  
Gunboat:

Hehe, there was a story on Fark awhile back about a guy that dressed up as a cop and threatened hookers he'd arrest them unless they blew him.

Anyhow, this would have been cooler if she was taken to a crime scene and the boyfriend is digging around in some corpse and pulls out a ring. (And then she blows everybody)
 
2005-02-11 06:39:13 AM  
Awwww.
That article made me feel all warm and sociopathic inside.
 
2005-02-11 07:21:05 AM  
I guess that if she had said 'no,' he could have had her tasered right there. Wonder if they will receive some handcuffs as a wedding gift?

Ummm...wasn't something VERY similar done on an episode of "Everybody Loves Raymond"?

It beats overused red roses, chocolate, or the ever popular ring-in-a-chamagne-glass.

/doesn't like red roses, chocolate OR diamonds.
//Does like champagne though.
 
2005-02-11 08:09:03 AM  
I chose a much more pedestrian way to propose to my wife.
 
2005-02-11 08:09:17 AM  
My dads friend was seriously considering sending his friend who was a sherriff in Charleston to fake an arrest on my wife and I for prostitution (and soliciting of) at our hotel room on our wedding night. My dad had to talk him out of it. I'd have loved it, my wife was furious at the idea when she heard about it later.

Almost as good as the woman who ran away when her boyfriend proposed at that basketball game.
 
2005-02-11 08:14:58 AM  
I would have liked a high speed chase and perhaps a Thelma & Lousie ending.

Ryan: "Why aren't you pulling over?"
Kristina: "This car is stolen and in the trunk there is a dead hooker covered in Cocaine."
 
2005-02-11 08:15:14 AM  
Damn, and here I proposed by reserving the same table at a restaurant that were were at on our first date. I had 'em bring out the ring with dessert. *sigh* I feel so outclassed now.
 
2005-02-11 08:19:28 AM  
It would have been funny if she started to speed off and went into a high speed chase ending in a shoot out with the AK-47 wielding men within the card vs the police with thier pistols.

pwn.
 
2005-02-11 08:20:39 AM  
Brown said he chose last Friday to ask the question because "it was a good day to do it."

You justcan't argue with cold, hard, logical reasoning like that.
 
2005-02-11 08:21:06 AM  
They could have beat her into submission of the proposal, like a forced confession.
 
2005-02-11 08:21:07 AM  
Best proposal I've ever seen was a guy who arranged a deal W a small theatre(it was a "dinner theatre" you sat at a little table and ate while watching a movie that was already out of the main theatres). During the previews a grainy film started panning across a dresser filled W photographs W sappy music playing and I heard a "What the hell?" behind me. Then the scene switched to a torso shot of a guy and he gave a little speech about how much he loved this girl and he held up a ring box and opened it and said "Will you be my wife" By then everyone in the theatre was turned to the couple and their group. The girl jumped on his lap crying and a friend (they had quite a few people W them) asked "Well is it yes or no?" and she replied "Of course yes!"
 
2005-02-11 08:23:41 AM  
My boyfriend's proposal was really cool. He floated a message in a wine bottle in the lake where he knew I would find it. Thank God he didn't put the ring in there, too!

What is so wrogn with the good old fashioned Rocky Balboa proposal?

Take her to see the tigers at the Philly zoo, and ask if she wouldn't mind marrying you too much.


/Proposalarity? Seriously, this device has gone too far.
 
2005-02-11 08:29:54 AM  
Seems a little white trash, if the guy who proposed had no shirt on and a mullet it would be perfect and I'd demand to see a video of it.

Meanwhile a crack addict is proposing to get high on crack with nobody to stop him.
 
2005-02-11 08:31:15 AM  
Bah, that's nothing.

A friend of mine hired a famous (famous in Denmark anyway) movie director as a consultant on his proposal, which eventually incorporated a helicopter and huge letters laid out on a beach.

Now we all hate him because he set the bar to high for the rest of us.
 
2005-02-11 08:32:40 AM  
Even better: Have the cop put her in cuffs and when he sticks her in the back of the cruiser...there you are!

She'll either be so relieved that she says yes before even thinking it over. Or she kicks your ass and dumps you for scaring the shiat out of her.
Either way it would be a great story (especially the latter scenario).

Jim Carey did it better in Me, Myself, and Irene.

LEVEL 2: Meanwhile a crack addict is proposing to get high on crack with nobody to stop him.


Actually, in Dekalb, there isn't that much crack.

But if you want to score some coke, go to the mens room at Molly's......

the best (and only) proposal i've ever seen was at Seaworld. in the main auditorium with the huge TV, they were getting shots of people in the audience and putting funny bubbles next to their head and displaying it on the TV. well, it zoomed in on a couple and "will you marry me?" was in the little bubble from the man to the woman. she said yes, then about 2 minutes later, they zoomed in on the ring.

What is so wrong with the good old fashioned Rocky Balboa proposal? Take her to see the tigers at the Philly zoo, and ask if she wouldn't mind marrying you too much.

Nothing at all, if your lady has seen Rocky and liked it. Me, I did things the old-fashioned way. As soon as my lady came out of the Air Singapore gate when she came from Australia to be with me, I handed her a dozen white roses, kissed her, knelt, and asked her to marry me.

This guy has more class than the fellow that decided that Golden Corral was the right place to propose...



He stood up, and in a VERY loud voice said something along the lines of "Since this is your favorite place to eat, I thought it would put you in the right mood to answer my question.. Will you marry me?"

At that point, the lady he was with tried to climb under the table and, failing that, got up and left.

I really felt sorry for the guy, but I was more worried that he was about 6'4" 250# and a bunch of people were laughing at him.

All I could see was him going postal and killing us all with that danged skillet.

 
2005-02-11 08:42:17 AM  
Yeah, but how long until she is farking a 14 year old student???
 
2005-02-11 08:43:06 AM  
This story needed an armed standoff.
 
2005-02-11 08:46:10 AM  
Proposalarity? I offer her my most enthusiastic contrafibularities.

 
2005-02-11 08:47:21 AM  
knobee: what a great story, that's beautiful. I find those public proposals distracting, I've never heard of anyone saying no on the spot.

And what is the Golden Corral? A place you go to eat in the middle of the night when drunk? Who the heck proposes at a buffet anyway?

Oh nooo! Quick, someone stop him from enjoying himself!
 
2005-02-11 08:52:10 AM  
I saw a few cool proposals at Fenway Park where they put the guy up on the big screen while he proposed.

Pretty damn cool I think.
 
2005-02-11 08:52:25 AM  
If the guy REALLY had a sense of humour, he would have slipped her a mickey, had the whole police dept gangbang her, THEN he'd propose to her.

Think of the stories then!

Well, the usual is to say yes in a public spot and then discuss later to avoid humiliating the fella. But then you shouldn't propose unless the odds are weighted in your favor.

It's the element of surprise that's key, not the extravagence of it all. Of course, I say that with my one (and hopefully only) proposal tally.
 
2005-02-11 08:58:34 AM  
I would have said no. That would have pissed me off so much that I probably would have broken up with him on the spot.

If he thought that creating stress like that in his gf's fear was "funny", what else is up his sleeve in the next 40-50 years?
 
2005-02-11 08:59:10 AM  
I agree "MysticSavage" gunplay would def had made this story for me..
