Maybe he was like, "HEY! YOU TEARS! I AM GOING TO MESS YOU UP!"

Groomy: So do you have my answer schnookums?

Bridey: Honey, I put my answer on the marquee.

Groomy: All you can eat $9.99 Prime Rib buffet, with entertainment by transvestite performing artist Liza MANelli! Oh dearest I love you.

Bridey: The other side of the marquee you insufferable twit.

Groomy: Scuse me while I bust a tear.

i busted a couple of tears.

yes, very manly of you. on no account must she know you feel.
 
2005-10-20 10:39:22 AM  
Sounds like Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Corolla need to be there to give the bride away.

Some 15 minutes into the congratulations and cheers, Taylor reminded her she still hadn't answered him.

"I said yes, yes, I'll marry you." He said thanks and left, promising he'd pick her up later.


So the whole marquee thing was pointless - she already answered him when he proposed. Great story.

Marines....not all that sharp.

brap, well played.

All right! Second local story this morning. Many fond memories (or lack thereof) ofthe Havelock Holiday Inn.

BTW, guys, the Doll Store nearby actually sells dolls; it's not a strip club.

2005-10-20 10:43:08 AM  
Man, she's gonna expect above & beyond from him for the rest of her life. He farked up.
 
2005-10-20 10:43:22 AM  
""I said yes, yes, I'll marry you." He said thanks and left, promising he'd pick her up later."

Is "thanks" the customary response when someone says "yes, I'll marry you"?
 
2005-10-20 10:45:05 AM  
wait, did we read a different article?

It said he asked
she said yes
then he left and said I'll pick you up later
then she put it on the sign

But she already TOLD him she said YES!

If she is really rich then yes, yes it is.

Longest. Headline. Ever. ?.
 
2005-10-20 10:51:23 AM  
I wonder how she's going to tell him she's leaving him in 2 years after he's been deployed and she gets bored and meets some other jarhead at the Jacksonville Mall.

(I hate Jacksonville, NC...and their airport that's more like a bus stop for planes)
 
2005-10-20 10:51:33 AM  
In LEVEL 2's world:

He first looked up at the sign and read it aloud, "The McRib Sandwich is Back!"

"No, the other sign."

-Time Passes-

Man marries McRib Sandwich

Headso

No, he was just being an Officer and a Gentleman......

He had to pick her up later cause he had to go do some pushups and fight his drill instructor.
 
2005-10-20 10:56:59 AM  
OK, WTF? Headline lies.
Some 15 minutes into the congratulations and cheers, Taylor reminded her she still hadn't answered him.

"I busted a couple of tears"

WTF does that mean? I'm going to start using that everyday now.
"I had to go to the bathroom so I busted a shiat"
 
2005-10-20 11:06:47 AM  
I'm guessing whoever greenlighted this never read the article. This was quite possibly the most worthless article I've read.
 
2005-10-20 11:09:46 AM  
Damn hippies with their psychobabble self-help books and appearances on Oprah's show. Now we've got battle-hardened leathernecks, the ones charged with defending us from all enemies, foreign & domestic, boo-hooing over hotel signs. There's no hope.

Ever since the crying-tough-man became a hot commodity, we haven't been to the moon one single time, the divorce rate bounced up to 99% and has stayed there, and nothing's been invented besides video games except Spongebob Squarepants pajamas. We are so doomed. We're either going to bring back the tough man who made his own clothes out of bear skin and pushed the wolves, buffalo, indians and rattlesnakes into the Pacific Ocean, or else we're gonna die. End times comin'.

Their marriage and reception is set for Nov. 12 - at the Havelock Holiday Inn.

Fark Party, November 12th at the Havelock Holiday Inn!

I just checked Drew's profile. His approved links went up a notch. That would explain this madness.

/have another beer for me, drew
 
2005-10-20 11:19:45 AM  
He was too busy checking the rack on her coworker.
 
2005-10-20 11:20:47 AM  
Dumb. Waste of time. She'd already said yes. Big deal.
 
2005-10-20 11:21:08 AM  
Someone decode that headline for me.
 
2005-10-20 11:21:50 AM  
That's as sweet as a packet of Sweet'N Low! It's saccharin-tastic.

" I busted a tear"

Dude, after about six months of marriage. more than a tear is gonna be/feel busted.... I hope you have combat experience 'cause your gonna need it...

Back in the day when I was a wingnut, and in training at Keesler AFB, we had a fair number of Army and Marine folk on base for training too, and it was the standing joke at the theatre that when the screen came up with the slide saying not to talk during the show etc. someone would shout "Leave it up a little longer, there's Marines in the audience."

I always thought that was just a joke. Until now.

/I keed

2005-10-20 11:38:34 AM  
Proposal October 6
Acceptance October 6, twice
Marriage November 12

Be sure to bring your shotgun.

He'll regret it, when "Jody" comes around.

/RTFA ... regret losing that time
 
2005-10-20 12:23:51 PM  
Very misleading headline.

before RTFA, I figured the guy went insane on his girfriend cause she didn't answer and broke up with her or something...
