Japanese Man Seeks to Wed Cartoon Character

Posted on October 31st, 2008 by Kori Ellis in Funny No Comments

Everyone knows that comic books (manga) and anime are very popular in Japan with some of the characters becoming celebrity icons. Sailor Moon AnimeNow a Japanese Man wants to take things to the next level. Taichi Takashita has launched an online petition trying to get one million signatures to present to the government in order to get a law passed on marriages betwen people and cartoon characters.

In the first week, he has gathered just over a thousand signatures.

“”I am no longer interested in three dimensions – I would even like to become a resident of the two-dimensional world,” he wrote.

“However, that seems impossible with present-day technology. Therefore, at the very least, would it be possible to legally authorise marriage with a two-dimensional character?”

Call me crazy, but I think marriage should be left to the humans.

Britney Breaks Out Her Old Wedding Dress

Posted on January 14th, 2008 by Courtney in Funny, News 1 Comment

Britney SpearsIn case you’ve been so incredibly busy planning your wedding that you haven’t had time to think about anything else (and trust us, we know it happens), we’ve got some wedding related info on your favorite pop tart, Britney Spears.

No, I don’t mean she’s getting married again (at least not just yet). Actually, she just felt like dusting off her old wedding duds. This either means she thought they deserved to be worn more than once, or she’s trying to get Adnan Ghalib to start thinking of marriage.

The pop princess was spotted with her new beau at a Mercedes dealership this past Friday showing off her old wedding dress while purchasing a brand new car. Rumor has it the car is for Ghalib, who has been ‘the only one there’ for Britney since her very public breakdown last week.

Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think wearing your old wedding dress while buying a brand new (very expensive) car for a guy you barely know is all that level-headed. Britney isn’t really known for being that composed lately, though. Just think about her newest relationship: gossip magazines are reporting that Britney and Adnan are already talking marriage!

Not to be mean, but I really hope we don’t see wedding number three for Brit for a little while. Is it safe to say it’s better not to have married and divorced than to have never married at all? In this case, I think it just might.

Heigl’s Honeymoon on Hold

Posted on January 9th, 2008 by Courtney in Celebrity Weddings, Funny 1 Comment

Honeymoon in MexicoYou’re all probably sick to death of hearing about Katherine Heigl’s wedding. (I know I’m getting close!) But it certainly seems like they’ve got some new news every week or so. Their PR people must be working overtime!

First it was the date and their plans, then it was how gorgeous the even was and what gown she was wearing (since she wouldn’t say before the big day). Well, now it’s all about her and her new husband Josh Kelley’s honeymoon.

I know! I’m sorry. I just couldn’t help posting about this!

Anyway, Extra TV reports that after Heigl and Kelley had their wintery Utah wedding she forgot her passport and he lost his ring! Talk about bad luck!

Less than 24 hours after their wedding, Kelley realized he didn’t have his wedding band anymore. (How does that happen?!) As it turns out, though, Heigl’s brother happened to find someone with a metal detector and they were able to find the band in the snow. Phew! I guess metal detectors really are a worthwhile investment.

As if that wasn’t enough, though, the morning before the newlyweds were set to leave on their honeymoon in Mexico, Kelley asked his new wife if she had her passport. All Heigl could say was “no,” and they had to return to L.A. before they could leave! Don’t worry, they still got to go, just a little later than they planned.

At least now we know those things happen to the stars too! Let this serve as a lesson to you all: keep your wedding ring close and your passport closer! Oh, and I guess it’s okay to keep your new spouse closest.

Toilet Paper Wedding Gown (Anyone Need a Tissue?)

Posted on December 24th, 2007 by Courtney in Funny, Wedding Attire, Wedding Fun 1 Comment

Toilet Paper WeddingHere comes the bride, all dressed in white…toilet paper that is.

Jennifer Cannon, of Lexington, Kentucky, didn’t just don her stylish two-ply extra-soft wedding duds, her wedding actually took place in a restroom in Times Square. Granted, the Charmin restroom was only temporary, and it was actually put up for the promotional event, but still.

Though Cannon wore the dress, it was Hannah Kim, winner of the 2007 Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest sponsored by Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com, who designed the dress.

According to the official rules, entrants in the contest were only allowed to use toilet paper, glue, and tape in the construction of their wedding dresses. Submissions were due in by July 31, 2007 and were judged on creativity, originality, and beauty.

Hannah Kim isn’t all that new to the toilet paper designing world of wedding dresses, though. She actually competed in the same contest just last year and came in second! Well, I guess second best wasn’t quite good enough, and with her first place prize this year, Kim will get to see her design turned into an actual wedding gown. Not an easy feat considering Kim’s intricate detailing!

Oh yeah, and as the overall winner, Kim also received $500 for her efforts. Not bad considering her only expenses were seven rolls of toilet paper! If you want to see pictures of Kim’s wedding gown designs, you can check them out at the Cheap-Chic-Weddings winners’ pages.

And if you want to enter, I’m sure they’ll be having another contest next year. (This year marked the third annual contest.) Why not get an early start?

A wedding dress made from toilet paper?! Who would have thought… I, for one, will be seeing toilet paper in a whole new light from now on!

Marriage Advice Clock

Posted on December 17th, 2007 by Kori Ellis in Funny, Wedding Fun, Wedding Registry 5 Comments

Marriage Advice ClockI came across the cutest clock the other day, so I thought I should share it with you. It would make an adorable wedding or anniversary gift.

The Marriage Advice Clock looks like a postcard. It has a “stamp” in the corner and is covered with witty and wise words of wisdom for the bride and groom. It would make a great wedding or anniversary gift.

It can be hung on the wall or sit on the nightstand or table. If you are interested, you can buy it at TheHandsWork.com, where you can find a bunch of other clocks and other home decor.

Speaking of marriage advice, what’s the best marriage advice that you have ever heard?

Here’s some oldies but goodies:

  • Don’t ever go to bed mad.
  • Count to 10 before you speak.
  • Call if you are going to be late.
  • Look your spouse in the eyes when talking to him/her.
  • Say thank you and please.
  • Try to always eat dinner together.
  • Hold hands in public.

Oh … and buy your wife diamonds for every occasion you can afford them.

Just kidding! (I think!)

A Wedding De-Stress Moment

Posted on December 14th, 2007 by Courtney in Funny 1 Comment

RobotWith all the stress you feel as a bride spending every waking moment planning your wedding, it’s a good idea to take a break every now and then. No, going to work doesn’t count!

In honor of today being Friday, and tomorrow being the start of the weekend, I thought I’d give you something to laugh about. Time to de-stress you beautiful bride-to-be! Your wedding is still going to be amazing!

So, without further ado, here’s today’s joke:

Dear Tech Support,

Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slow down in overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.

In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5 and then installed undesirable programs such as NFL 5.0, NBA 3.0, and Golf Clubs 4.1 . Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. I’ve tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but it is no longer available.

What can I do?

Signed,

Desperate

___________________________________________________________________________________

Dear Desperate,

First keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while husband 1.0 is an Operating System. Please enter the command “http: I Thought You Loved Me.html” and try to download Tears 6.2 and don’t forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update.

If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5. But remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0 or Beer 6.1. Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Snoring Loudly Beta.

Whatever you do, DO NOT install Mother-in-law 1.0 (it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources). Also, do not attempt to reinstall the Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0. In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend Food 3.0 and Hot Lingerie 7.7.

Good Luck,

Tech Support

Wedding Ring Saves Man’s Life

Posted on December 3rd, 2007 by Kori Ellis in Funny, News, Wedding Rings 2 Comments

Wedding BandI know some men don’t always like to wear their wedding bands. But a man in Jackson, Mississippi proved why they always should.

Donnie Register has a big reason to be thankful he’s married right now. His wedding band deflected a bullet during a robbery and possibly saved his life.

Two men walked into Register’s antique store and asked to see a coin collection. When Register went to get the collection, one of the men pulled out a gun and demanded money. During the robbery, shots were fired and Register raised his left hand.

The police say that his wedding band deflected the bullet, probably saving his life.

“The bullet managed to go through two of his fingers without severing the bone. A part of the bullet broke off and is in his middle finger. The other part is in his neck, lodged in the muscle tissue. But it’s not life-threatening,” said his wife, Darlene Register.

I bet next time Darlene tells her husband to wear his ring, he will!

(Hi)Story Book Weddings: President Cleveland

Posted on November 30th, 2007 by Amber in Celebrity Weddings, Funny, Wedding History 2 Comments

Cleveland’s WeddingWhile you’re racing around town investigating venues and gasping at price tags, you might occasionally wish you could just have the wedding in your own living room. That is, if you had a really nice living room – maybe with some colonial columns and a butler. One of the perks of being president of the United States, in addition to the staff of thousands, is a really nice set-up for events. Too bad you have to spend most of your time ruling the free world. But running for president so you can stop haggling with groundskeepers over the dahlias is not the most time efficient strategy. And, as it happens, only one sitting president has ever been married in the White House.

Grover Cleveland was a confirmed bachelor with a pronounced walrus mustache and a crush on a woman 27 years his junior. But having “Commander in Chief” on your business cards really woos the ladies, so Cleveland got the girl. He married his lovely young ward, Frances Folsom, at the White House in 1886.

When the media learned that Frances was Cleveland’s intended, she became a target for the ever-persistent muckrakers. Cleveland took great mustachioed glee in banning journalists from the wedding, an elegant affair featuring festoons of flowers and John Philip Sousa leading the Marine Band. Only family, close friends, and cabinet officers were invited – and none gave the panting reporters any juicy tidbits for publication. In a final taunt, Cleveland sent two wedding guests from the ceremony in the presidential carriage. As the media dashed off frantically behind the galloping horses, he and Frances left the White House at their leisure for a honeymoon.

Frances, Cleveland, and his mustache lived happily-ever-after.

Couple Gets Married at a Donut Shop

Posted on November 23rd, 2007 by Kori Ellis in Funny, News, Wedding Food 3 Comments

DonutsA Rhode Island couple got married at the Honey Dew Donut Shop on Wednesday. “Honey Dew” is a such a fitting name!

Cyndi LaRose and Joseph David Smith decided to exchange wedding vows at the North Kingstown donut shop where they met. The donut baker made the food and a probate judge conducted the ceremony.

But it was the owner Faraq Mohamed and his donut shop that got the couple together. LaRose had been coming to the location for years and noticed Smith when he started coming in to see his niece, who worked behind the counter.

Love blossomed when Mohamed asked them both to help him with an errand a few weeks ago. Two days after that, Smith proposed. The couple was in love and felt no need to wait. They picked out their wedding rings last week and said their “I Do’s” at the Honey Dew on Wednesday.

Good luck to the happy couple!
