Re: Wedding-Related Story

Had a cousin in-law that had a wedding. Invited people from out of town. Everyone was there. Minister shows up and asks to see the license. No license. Bride and Groom got into an argument that they each though the other had got it. Minister conducts the ceremony (not valid). Later they get married for real after getting a license. (Of course they both have to be there to get it.)

Not as good as the Bride getting stuck together with the Best man but still would have been fun to see.

Not at all. It just might require multiple cutting motions and perhaps a good kick to loosen things up a little bit.

Re: Wedding-Related Story

I understand that the groom must have felt humiliated. Still, I wonder if he might some day look back on what he left behind.

Have to admit she demonstrates an impressive pudendal power.

Do kegs come with reverse-flow check valves?

Re: Wedding-Related Story

Something tells me the reverse flow valve isnt necessary. You dont have yourself put in that sort of a position unless you're quite confident of your suction abilities. But what do I know?

"where can I get that lovely Tiara?" ?

O.K., maybe something like, "I already tapped the keg..." o.k. stopping now.

I don't have any wedding related stories, which is odd. My first (groom)
was just a blur (I was 20). My second took place at The Flamingo in
Las Vegas. Quite nice. My oldest daughter's was lovely (almost
flawless really and even came in on budget). The one thing I do recall
is buying several cases of wine at the "close out" table for the
reception. The country club where it was held wouldn't let me bring it in
(understandable). No matter, we drank it up in short order after
the wedding was history.
