OT: the Weiner wedding
I had a friend named Weiner get married. I almost fell out of my chair when the minister announced Mr and Mrs Weiner.
then you'd have the Beaver-Weiner Wedding.
If you're last name is something like that, you have the oppurtunity to ditch it when you get married. Sure, you're sacrificing one of the benefits of a being a guy, but really, is that a big deal if you get a drastically more favorable last name?
No. I speak as a man whose parents gave him a highly questionable middle name bearing an unfortunate resemblance to the first name of a woman character on a famed sitcom of an earlier era. (One that requires furiously typed run-on sentences to describe) You do not compromise that name. You take it with you to your grave, spitting in the devil's face and forcing all the mockers to respect you. You unleash the hurt feelings you bottled up as a 9-year old and unleash a rage hurricane that makes everyone else's inner 9-year old weep for their respective mothers. You do not take the way of a coward and flee from the travesty your parents have wrought upon you.
looks like things took a tragic turn...
didn't you? Fess up.
mama doesn't let me play with knives
for the first name Huge. Last name Fucking Cock.
that's still one bummer of a last name.
better hope you don't have daughters.
... I miss him on local radio; he was railroaded out of his gig once before. His sidekick Bernie is hilarious.
"Mrs. Huma Weiner...." A wedding officiated by Bill Clinton? Awesome...
I know some members of a well-to-do Long Island family with that surname. Dunno if there's any relation, but they pronounce it like 'why-ner,' FWIW. Not that that makes it a whole lot better.
