Two very different milestones in life: weddings and funerals.

They don't intersect much... and you don't want to confuse one for the other.


u/Abre724 asked:

What's something you can say at a wedding but not at a funeral?

Here were some of those answers.

It Does Happen

Let's do a silly photo this time

Irish funerals. Sombre ceremony, calm for the most part, completely silent except for the responses during mass and some crying. Then off to the pub. Massive piss up, celebration of the persons life. Many silly pictures can and probably will be taken.

No One Mourns The Wicked

Finally! I know this is the happy ending we all wanted.

seriously_funn

Doesn't she look lovely in that dress?

Wink

That's going to be you one day.

Chaz_wazzers

I feel like you can absolutely say that someday you will die, at a funeral.

spacemantrip

Like when you are single at a wedding and your aunts and uncles say: You're next

At funerals I look at them and say: You're next, with a wink.

An Open Season

"This is the happiest day of my life."

Glittering-Inside

While you may be joking, that is one of the requests I've made too my wife for my funeral. Open bar, open ice cream bar, and as they lower me into the ground I want the sound of you going down the pipes in the original Super Mario bro's.

It Moved On

"I'm proud to say that I'm the one who's responsible for us being here today."

Underrated comment

Oops

My mom once said "Congratulations" at a funeral because she didn't fully understand the language yet.

rossols

I feel like if someone says something inappropriate but obviously is struggling with the language they should get a pass and a quiet explanation later on.

Over And Over

"Maybe this time it'll work out."

I'm imagining this being said at someone's second funeral. They were supposed to be dead at the first one, but so who came back to life for a while.

I Object

If anyone objects to this union speak now or forever hold your peace.

alk_adio_ost

"I object!"

corpse comes to life

Over And Over

Till death do us apart was going to be my answer, but i could see a "grieving" widow maniacally mutter that phrases as they realize they have been freed from the iron chains of matrimony.

Mainly I would in that situation. Strip iff my clothes running into the sunset, on a quest to find the moon so I can howl at it.

Just Giving It Back To You Dude

i remember being at my distant cousin's wedding and an old man walked up to me and said "that'll be you one day". a couple months later one of my aunts sadly passed away, and at her funeral i saw that same old man. i walked up to him and said the same thing. apparently that's not a good thing to do?

Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?

You're not alone.

Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.

Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.

AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"

Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.

Nutritious

"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015

"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo

"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz

"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades

Take Your Pick

"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100

"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer

"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er

Peak Efficiency

"Lembas" -- Roxwords

"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister

Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.

The One and Only

"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox

"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits

"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo

Cheeeeeeeeese

"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified

"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85

"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy

Get a Big Old Chunk

"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."

-- Ozwaldo

Slurp, Slurp, Slurp

"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox

"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM

"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun

Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.

That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.

What's In It??

"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes

"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth

Slice of the Future

"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91

"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros

As Sweet As They Had

"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon

"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes

"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade



Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.

When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"

Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.

Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).

I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.

Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
