Since this is a writing blog, I'll share this little tidbit from our wedding. Jeff and I decided that the usual "clinking glasses to kiss" tradition was cute, but kind of boring. So we proposed the following modification: before clinking their glasses, the guests had to take the microphone and either 1) compliment Livia or 2) make fun of Jeff -- bonus points if they did both in haiku form.
People came up with some hilarious and rather well written haikus. For some reason, I found this one particularly amusing:
Jeffrey is funny--
looking. Ha ha ha ha ha.
Ha ha ha ha ha!
What do you think? Total copout, or stroke of genius?
