Frank (aka PCGuy) and Di (aka Pensitivity101) alternate as hosts for Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in our responses. Today is Di’s turn to host and here are her questions.
1. What is the significance of ‘jumping the broomstick’?
It’s what the bride does at a witch wedding just after taking the vows.
2. What is a bottom drawer/Hope chest?
It’s where the newly married husband hides all of his porn.
3. Why is it considered unlucky to wear green at a wedding?
Because it will clash with the green with envy expressions on the faces of the other bride wannabes in attendance.
4. Why is the chief bridesmaid referred to as a Matron of Honor?
Because she’s usually older and matronly.
5. What is the duty of the Best Man?
To try to talk the groom out of getting married.
6. What is a Groom’s Cake?
It’s a cake baked in the shape of the groom’s favorite sport.
7. How many tiers does a traditional wedding cake have?
One tier if it’s the bride’s first marriage and one additional tier for each previous marriage.
8. Why are black cats considered a lucky token at weddings?
It means that the marriage will have nine lives.
9. Why does the bride traditionally wear a veil over her face going up the aisle?
To hide the hives that have broken out all over her face due to being so nervous.
10. Why do they call the ‘holiday’ after a wedding a honeymoon?
Because the tradition is for the bride and groom to smear their butts with honey and then to moon their wedding guests as the limousine pulls away from the reception.
