My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard

It’s days like these that I am ashamed of my faith.  Or rather, the culture…

I’m utterly speechless. If I ever am proposed to, I have two rules:

1)  Any day except for 2/14
2) Ring must not be hidden in food.

Can you imagine, loading up on fiber, anxiously awaiting each trip to the bathroom, and then fishing into the toilet, digging for buried treasure?  Nothing says romance like the CLEANING that that ring will need before you can EVER put it on your left hand.

    We’re definitely not the only group of people to do silly things like this, but a frosty? A FROSTY?

    Excellent post title.

    I so agree with you. That’s disgusting and not romantic at all.

    Remember the story a few years back of the woman who allegedly found a finger tip in her cup of Wendy’s chili?

    The Frosty-ring story is grosser to me. Harder to swallow!

    “I downed the champagne in one gulp. And it didn’t go down smooth.”—Dorothy Petrillo Zbornak

    Some more rules:

    3. It must never happen in public, especially not on a JumboTron.

    4. It must not involve any behavior imitative of a felony (e.g., a kidnapping).

    5. Ordinarily there should be no singing by either participant. If this happens spontaneously, the song must not have been written after 1960.

    6. Both participants must have, at a minimum, two layers of clothing on during all phases of the proposal.

    7. No woman should have to answer a proposal of marriage while she has wet hair.

    8. Under no circumstance, under penalty of the most severe social ostracizing, should the proposer contemplate or take any action (including but not limited to the gluing of items to poster board) involving puns on the brand names of candy.

    Did I skim too quickly, or did I read accurately that she blogged that she hopes to get a free honeymoon for being an idiot?

    love the racy subject reference. hilarious le mare.

  • 8. critts  |  March 4, 2009 at 10:04 pm

    Oh, and does it not bother anyone else that she mentioned she hopes someone will give them a free honeymoon because of this? Because she swallowed then pooed out her engagement ring?

  • 9. LeMare  |  March 5, 2009 at 1:44 pm

    Massimo, I couldn’t agree more. I’m going to add:

    9) The proposal should not involve the popping of balloons to find the letters that spell out “Will you marry me”

    10) The proposal should not involve all the members of your institute class.

    I, for one, think it was a stroke of genius! First of all, due to their instant celebrity status, they got to make rounds on all of the major morning and afternoon news and talk shows and secondly, they got to revel in the travel and prizes they received from each. On Ellen, they received a 7 day cruise on Celebrity! I’d slwallow a ring any day in exchange for an all expense paid trip!

    OF COURSE this happened after institute. Why are we, as a people, such a bunch of dorks? Can’t we be smooth at anything?

    11) Proposal should not happen at institute or any other church function.

    12) A trip to the hospital is not romantic
