Wedding Planning

It's your special day. Go Bridal. Just shut up about it already.

Also, friends don't let friends wear ugly dresses.

Everything I learnt about pirates, I learnt in kindergarten.

And just in case you never grew out of kindergarten, don't forget, this Friday is Talk Like a Pirate Day (an internationally observed festival, I'm told).

Fresh Flowers

Don't you love that a rose and note is enough? It used to be much more complicated.

Pick the wrong flower, and you could be saying "I'm sorry my pet elephant trampled your gardenias" instead of "I'm sorry my uncle died at your birthday party and ruined the cake."

The trouble is, it isn't always that easy. The longer a word is, the more difficult it is to unscramble. But that isn't the only factor, as these guys prove.

If you ever wondered why people are getting fatter, wonder no more!

Not content with a burger and fries, they have cheeseburger-fries, to go with their, uh, cheeseburger and fries, I guess.

And when a stuffed Turkey, or Duck, or Chicken isn't quite enough, how about stuffing a duck with a stuffed chicken, and then stuffing it all into a Turkey? I give you, the turducken. I wonder if they can do that in tofu, although I am loath to eat any food that starts with "turd".

But sometimes, you just need a really, really, big burger.

Then again, there are those who use meat, not as a tool of evil, but to bring us all together.
