Why I pity my future son and daughter-in-law, #627

Riding around this weekend, somehow, my evil spawn got it into their heads to have theme weddings. Pepperkat wants to have a pirate wedding in full costume.

Arr, will ye take this here scallywag to be yer lawfully wedded… and so on and so forth… where’s the rum?! Arrr!

Whiny liked the idea, but suggested a combination pirate-ninja wedding. Friends of the bride being required to wear eyepatches and friends of the groom being required to appear silently from the shadows.

They also discussed finding a mate who would accept such a ceremony. Obviously, if he/she agrees too quickly, they’re desperate and should be dumped. If they don’t agree at all, they’re no fun and should be dumped.

Hmm… they may be on to something…

    re: pirate wedding

    That is the BEST IDEA I’VE EVER HEARD. If I ever get married, I might have to steal it . . . “Arrrrr, do you take this lusty wench to be yer bride?”

    your children are intuitive and astute, hip to the times. i recently read in Cosmo that the pirate/ninja approach will be the only proper way to have a wedding this season. designed by Vera Wang, of course.

    I think the pirate wedding is a fine idea. We had an Irish themed wedding because well, my family is only one generation away from the Ol’ Sod. Of course, by the time we tapped the keg for the reception…or rather by the time we tapped the second keg we had a whole bunch of folks who were talking like the Lucky Charms leprechan.

    Warn your children now that they’d better record it all so that they can use it later against friends and family. We didn’t and now all of our f&f disavow any such behavior.

    My daughter is going to the wedding of two of her friends on Talk Like A Pirate Day. The bride and groom will be dressed as pirates, and the ceremony will be conducted by a minister also dressed like a pirate, and everybody will speak in pirate-ese.

    Avast. Arrrrrrh.

    Oh, and the groom and the preacher will have parrots on their shoulders.

    I say, go for it. Heaven knows there’s not enough sentimentality and romance in this world.

    I was afraid to ask about the music.
