I think subby meant Welsh wedding...

Did Begbie finally come out of the closet? I figured he'd be the bride.

"Glassed?"

Nice verbing, BBC.

From TFA, it wasn't the bride who did the smashing of the glass. It was a bridesmaid who hit someone else.

The assailant says she had 6 drinks when the event occurred but wasn't drunk - on that, I believe her. Those fat British chicks drink more than that during breakfast.

Emma Meredith, 24, of Gorseinon, near Swansea, was still in her satin gown at the St Valentine's Day wedding party when she injured Emma Jayne Davies.

Emma gonna give you up.
Emma gonna let you down.

CATFIGHT !!!

smashed a beer glass into the face of one of the bridesmaids

England ? - well then that could only improve the looks of the bridesmaid...

Not to nit pick, but Welsh != British. For a Welsh wedding this is pretty tame.
 
2009-08-28 03:46:20 PM
It seems British have turned into Deep South American rednecks.
 
2009-08-28 03:46:54 PM
If someone did that kind of damage to me, I'd kill her right there with her own glass in self-defense.
 
2009-08-28 03:47:05 PM
I like the use of the sappy tag, subby.

Good job.

No, this is what they actually call it in the UK and Australia. Apparently this is a major problem in both places and there was a greenlight here a few days ago talking about how pubs may be forced by the government to use plastic cups instead of glasses. See what happens when you ban guns? People attack each other with glasses. And what kind of defense can you use for that? And what if they come at you with a pointy stick?

According to the TFA, subby, it was a bridesmaid smashing a beer glass into the face of another guest & there was no mention the bride being involved at all.

No, glassing is common enough to be a verb.

Pointed stick? Oh, oh, oh. We want to learn how to defend ourselves against pointed sticks, do we? Getting all high and mighty, eh? Fresh fruit not good enough for you eh? Well I'll tell you something my lad. When you're walking home tonight and some great homicidal maniac comes after you with a bunch of loganberries, don't come crying to me!

Then you send one of theirs to the morgue. Or something like that.

British, Welsh, Southern, Midwestern, Jedi, high-class or low, it's not a wedding til someone gets hit in the piehole with a beer. but i do agree that this is alcohol abuse and is never advised.

Sappy tag for the red stuff oozing out of the bridesmaid?

The fact the term "glassed" exists over there points to a larger problem.

It's just not a FARK headline without the subby mis-reading (or not reading) the entire article and misconstruing the entire thing.

Nobody move! That lassie got glassed, and no coont leaves here till we find out what coont did it!

miltonbabbitt: "She told police she had drunk four glasses of wine and two pints of lager but denied being drunk."

There's the problem, she forgot the legend;

"Beer before wine, you will feel fine.
Wine before beer, you will go batshiat insane at a Welsh wedding and end up with a nine month suspended prison sentence and 180 hours unpaid work."

So, let's do a recap here:

1. It wasn't a British wedding, it was Welsh.
2. It wasn't the bride doing the smashing, it was a bridesmaid.
3. It wasn't a bridesmaid what got glassed, but a guest.
4. Fark: link gets over 40 hits and is greenlit.

Grats, subby. Well-played.

If it was a Welsh wedding it was British wedding...unless you are some kind of weird batshiat insane Welsh nationalist in complete denial about the last few hundred years.

Wales being rather a key part of Britain and all that.

I think you must not know a lot of folks from Wales, or Scotland. There are a lot of people who feel just like the 15-year-old weird batshait insane Nationalist quoted on Yahoo Answers:

Are you Welsh or british or both ?

Do Welsh people consider their nationality to be Welsh or british, or both? One more than the other. Please state your age(ish) in answering as I'd like to see how your generation feels, thanks

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker

I am 15, I live in Wales I am Welsh and Welsh is my first language

I am Welsh and Welsh only through and through. I never class myself British Why have two nationalities? When you have a perfectly good one to start with? Plus being British and Britishness is basically English and Englishness enforced on others. Well no thank you I am Welsh and Welsh only
