A colleague of mine is going to be best woman at a wedding next week. She's getting pretty stressed about the speech. Although she knows the guy fairly well (obviously) and can talk lots about what a great guy & good friend he is etc she doesn't have any funny stories about him. He just isn't that sort of guy, but does have a good sense of humour. She is looking for generic stories / jokes she could adapt to him but is too maxed out to start looking. I said I'd ask you lot for help (and just hope the bride-to-be isn't a MNetter!) It is second marriage and children from both sides will be there so not too risque. Anyone any ideas?
I'm sure there are websites, she's just too stressed with work and home stuff to start looking, hence trying to take the easy option (MN!) to help her. I'll have a search later if I get the chance. Just trying to help her chill about it all!
Yes, I'll marry you, my dear, And here's the reason why; So I can push you out of bed When the baby starts to cry, And if we hear a knocking And it's creepy and it's late, I hand you the torch you see, And you investigate.
Yes, I'll marry you, my dear, You may not apprehend it, But when the tumble-drier goes It's you that has to mend it, You have to face the neighbour Should our labrador attack him, And if a drunkard fondles me It's you that has to whack him.
Yes, I'll marry you, You're virile and you're lean, My house is like a pigsty You can help to keep it clean. That sexy little dinner Which you served by candlelight, As I do chipolatas, You can cook it every night!
It's you who has to work the drill and put up curtain track, And when I've got PMT it's you who gets the flak, I do see great advantages, But none of them for you, And so before you see the light, I do, I do, I do!
I know it is a reading but if she couldicorporate it into her speech and if the bride and groom have a sense of humour, then it is very funny! But it kind of has to fit the couple. This might help:
