Here comes the bride / Here fat and wide!
Here comes the groom / Skinny as a broom!
2002-10-17 03:40:03 AM  
I'd always heard "Big, fat, and wide"
2002-10-17 03:42:02 AM  
I thought it was "All fat and wide"

Always the ring tone musician, never the bride.

Little known fact: Samuel Clemens actually originally wrote the music known today as "Here Comes the Bride". As such, Samuel Clemens (you might know him as Mark Twain) subsequently went on to create the mobile phone, in which he personally programmed the tune of Here Comes the Bride specifically for potentially embarassing situations where the organist doesn't show up and the audience member takes his place.

that and a bucket of kfc and a krispy kreme wedding cake would make the perfect white trash wedding.

Wow. What a special memory to have.
*rolls eyes*

Spince, Samuel Clemens? Where did that come from?

If you'd claimed it was Benjamin Franklin, I would have understood, but...

Benjamin Franklins real name is Samuel Clemens (latest FARK cliche).

I'm so out of touch with Fark cliches. Mental note: get up to date on the newest and hippest fark cliches.

"The fingers you have used to play this ring tone are too fat. To obtain a special dialing wand, please mash the mobile phone with your palm now."

Doesn't matter, I was very surprised when it happened (and I got the credits for it).

After yesterdays rant about cell phones in college lectures, theaters, classes, and church. This "shining example" of cellular technology saving the day will be held upon high as the reason everyone should have one and they should NEVER be silenced or turned off.

*goes to slam head against office wall.

Lately every time I dial the phone, I have the urge to play the touchtone intro to "Funkytown"
2002-10-17 08:22:36 AM

Bah. That's nothing. I was providing the PA system and music at one wedding(you'd be surprised at how many people forget the music!). A guy shows up at rehearsal demanding to play the music - on a rinky-dink $30 Casio synthesizer. Turns out he's a friend of the bride. I connect it to the system. He gets mad and storms out(why I'll never know). Minister says, "it's OK, bring your music"(he was cool). Same loser shows up the next day just before the wedding and lectures about how it's the bride's day, not mine, and how the bride is calling the shots, so STFU. Yep, he played. He didn't even get half the notes right.

Whatever. He was a half-wit anyway.
