Totally lost it at “Thundercats Ho”. Hilarious, Adam!
Glad to hear it. Was originally gonna go with something more broad like “oogedy-bogedy.”
“Alright, we’re doing the short-short version! Do you?!”
“Good, you’re married, kiss her!”
Mel Brooks. Comedy genius!
That sounds like Robin Hood: Men In Tights
I always figured long, excruciating ceremonies were symbolic of marriage itself.
Second panel made me LOL… My classmates think Im insane now… Its heading in the right direction.
This strip goes directly to my top ten!
Every single panel made me laugh… You should see the look in my coworkers faces
“In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Snarf.”
Funny, I always thought weddings were really short. My mom was a church organist, and most (Lutheran) church weddings are only 15 minutes. Ya can’t wait 15 minutes?
Of course, Lutheran guilt is not finishing a book before you give it back to the library, so take what I say with a grain of salt, doncha know.
My mother was Lutheran, and when I was about four, my uncle married a Ukranian Catholic woman. Poor mom had to keep us three toddlers quiet for an hour and a half during that ceremony. Afterwards she told us that we’d better grow up to get married in a Lutheran church, because we’d “be in and out of there in ten minutes.”
Ours was under 15 minutes. One of our friends had to take her granddaughter to the bathroom right before the ceremony, and got back just in time for “you may kiss the bride”.
Hey, now. The “words” portion of the program only lasts 20-30 minutes. What eats up the time is the music, or if you’re Catholic, communion.
Here’s some fun for ya.
Is that Godbug in panel one?
My wedding was the full hour-long deal, but the priest kept the congregation laughing, so I don’t think anyone minded.
It really does depend on the religion and personal preference these days. My wedding ceremony was probably 30 minutes, maybe less. My cousin’s wasn’t more than 15 (thank God because it was outside and HOT AS HELL) but Catholic weddings are well known for running over an hour and some other religions and cultures can have weddings that run across multiple days.
Most Americans just want a short ceremony so they can get to the reception these days. Nothing wrong with that!
You’d have appreciated my wedding, Adam, we skipped having a ceremony and went straight to the reception.
For some odd reason, it reminds me of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SbUC-UaAxE
Or that I’ve been listening to it too much.
it is now my goal to have the priest at my wetting knight me with a sword of omens and yell thundercats ho mid ceremony!
My uncle’s recent wedding actually WAS done at the reception. In a night club! The priest did her thing and then the curtains behind her opened and we all went to go mill about as the chairs were cleaned out from under us. Shortest wedding I’ve ever been to. Also the least boring.
When my sister got married, one of our cousins was planning her own wedding for later that year. She said multiple times that she was taking notes. Here’s what happened:
Location: Mountaintop chapel
Reception: Open bar, DJ
Married for: 11 years so far
Location: Outdoors… at a golf course… Across the street from a REFINERY!
Reception: Cash bar, boom box
Married for: 7 months
I think weddings are traditionally longer to prevent the priest or pastor from sneak-marrying anyone.
I mean think about it. If we didn’t have extensive ceremonies, those conniving clergymen could just hide out in any random bush and wait for a couple of people to walk by, then leap out, arms raised and screaming “INOWPRONOUNCEYOUMANANDWIFEYOUMAYKISSTHEBRIDE!” and *blamo,* you’re married! Who wants that? Yes, boredom is just the price we must pay to live in a society free of ambush marriages.
