It's really simple. When you are in attendance for a couple's wedding... act accordingly, you know, like NOT an idiot. Just because there is an open bar doesn't mean you have to drink it dry. And if you're having issue with the couple and the nuptials in general ask yourself... "Why the hell am I even here?!" This isn't General Hospital. That speak now or forever hold your peace bit is just part of tradition. Nobody takes it seriously, at least nobody is suppose to. It's meant to be a joyful event. keep it that way!


Redditor mortimerza wanted to let everyone know a few proper points of etiquette when at a wedding, so they asked others to admit... What is the worst thing you can do at someones wedding?

Vet your people...

The girlfriend to one of my groomsmen showed up super late to the reception while wearing a white crop top and hitting on my older bro who was also a groomsmen. Not super trashy but definitely a solid amount of trash. Great wedding though.

Where is your I don't see your name on the list...

Showing up without RSVPing, showing up in jeans when the invite says formal, showing up 15 minutes late in the middle of the ceremony, letting toddlers run around during the reception and stick their fingers in the cake.

During the ceremony of my brother's wedding, a drunk uncle on the bride's side thought it was okay to make sexual jokes to the pastor throughout the entire thing. Our side of the family had a melt down when he interrupted the vows with an oral sex/divorce joke.

Who??

At my sister's wedding the best man kept referring to my sister as the groom's ex-wife. That was pretty terrible.

Some one was secretly in love with the wife to be.

Hello. Rude.

Giphy

Steal their thunder by proposing to your SO.

BeholdMyAnoos

Even when they have permission, it still seems rude as hell. It's THEIR day.

This isn't your moment!

Basically call attention to yourself in any way shape or form. If you go to a wedding and no one remembers you mission accomplished.

We're all flammable.

Set an 8 year old boy on fire.

The story: At my cousin's wedding. Reception is outdoor, under a tent. The Emcee announces that the famous chef Duffy will be presenting his famous "Flaming Chicken" and everyone should give him a big round of applause. Chef Duffy comes running out carrying a sheet pan with brandy soused chicken set on fire. He slips on the dance floor and the chicken flambe falls under the folding chair of a child and rapidly turns into a ball of flame. Bystanders quickly jump into action and put the fire out, and there is no harm to the child. The videographer stayed with the shot and to this day when my cousin and his wife are feeling down, they pop in the wedding tape. Always good for a laugh.

Drink to much and throw up especially if it is an open bar. That and do not hit on the bride.

You're still paying for that meal...

RSVP that you will be attending and then don't show up. The couple will still have to pay for you as if you did come, and they probably would have invited someone else if they knew that you were unable to attend.

At my cousins wedding I was stood at a table which was next to the cake table talking to my Nan when a drunk man stumbled past and knocked over the cake (which hadn't been cut at this stage). He disappeared as quick as he could leaving me and my Nan (in her 80's) to try and rescue the cake. Everyone thought it was one of us that knocked it over and it was terrible, so yeah don't get drunk too early and do not go near the cake especially if it has not been cut.

Be in the moment!

Recently attended a wedding that had three very talented photographers but everybody had their phones up and out taking videos and pictures. Not the worst thing, but just annoying and inconsiderate. It was a beautiful, emotional wedding - look up from your screens and share the moment with the couple damn it!

I used to work at a place that did weddings so have a couple of stories...

We once had the father of the bride come to the bar mid-ceremony for a pint. I had to turn him down as we aren't allowed to serve alcohol during the ceremony.

There was the time (a different) father of the bride got drunk, managed to cover both himself and a toilet cubicle in copious amounts of shit, then blame every other bloke for it.

Seen the odd bit of domestic violence and had to call the police.

We had some reception guests turn up uninvited for the main event. They had super picky dietary requirements - two gluten free vegans, and they got very upset and started complaining that we didn't have enough suitable food for them. We cater for who we are told will be present and guests have to let people know their dietaries beforehand, but we do always keep a bit of extra veggie/vegan stuff on hand for the inevitable. They moaned at least 4 separate members of staff when we were clearly all already running around busy and took up so much time. The manager went over and had a quiet word with the bride who let us know they weren't even supposed to be there, and she threw them out. They left and still came back for the evening reception, despite all of this.

First - let me say I make awful jokes when I'm feeling emotional tension.

My brother got married last weekend and it was very stressful because his dog was dying. She was in the wedding ceremony but the vet said she would need to be put down right after.

He was being married at a campsite and we were helping my mom (who is grumpy and has COPD) up a hill and it was a struggle. It was also so sad for us because she isn't doing so well either.

I looked at him and said "I bet you thought we'd have to put her down before the dog."

This was not funny. No one laughed. What the fuck is wrong with me?

Cue the music...

Bribe the organist to play a funeral march as the wedding procession comes down the aisle.

Rearrange the seating chart that was worked on for a long time because you weren't happy with it.

5th time is the charm...

If it's their second marriage, saying to one side of the family "Welcome back!"

Third wedding: "Let's hope third time's a charm, right, hahaha, oh who are we kidding?"

Fourth wedding: "Wow, not sure why you even bothered at this point."

pinupgal

DUCK!!

Object by throwing a shoe at the bride.

  1. Ask the bride if she broke wind
  2. Send back the chicken for being undercooked, when it was actually fish
  3. Declare them as a couple before the groom says "I do"
  4. Get mad and curse when you're supposed to push the wheelchair of the bride's father, but he starts to walk
  5. Give a speech when you are only employer of the bride
  6. In the speech, define wedding as the fusing of two metals with a hot torch

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?
