    I need your help. I am supposed to make a speech at my friend’s wedding reception at the end of July. The reception is going to be at this fancy hotel in orange county. I know the bestman usually is the one who is supposed to make the speech but I have this reputation of being shameless and a tendency to make absurd comments so he asked me to do it. He said he is afraid everyone would be so uptight and proper so he wants them to loosen up. Plus he wants to see his future in-laws’ face when I let loose on some of the most non-PC comments. He basically wants the classy dinner to be trashy. I took the offer but I didn’t want to not steal the bestman’s responsibility so I am going to include him in the speech as well. Actually, I want to make sure that not the only jackass there.

    Anyways, I already have an idea of what I am going to say and I don’t need any help with that. Particularly since most of what I am going to say is “You have to know them” comments. I don’t plan on just giving a speech. I want to make a spectacle. He is totally for it. However, he laid out some ground rules:

    1. No getting anyone dirty or wet. (He knows me very well)
    2. No holocaust jokes. (His wife is Jewish)
    3. No nudity. (Again, he knows me very well)
    4. He ultimately wants it to be sweet and memorable. (Apparently that’s how weddings are supposed to be *gag*).

    I need help with coming up with some fun things to do during the speech. We’ve come up with a few ideas but I am sure there are better out there.
    We thought of the following:

    1. Print out a picture of them onto a bunch of underwear and randomly shoot it out to the crowd in a CO2 gun during our speech. (I’ve been trying to find places that rent or sell these type of guns, no luck so far).
    2. Make life size cutout of both of them, drag them around town and take pictures of them in random places. (the best man’s idea. I think he stole it from a movie).
    3. Hire a bunch of those labor workers that stand outside of home depot and have them act out the speech we’re going to make. (we have the budget to make this happen but we would need to transport them in a van from LA to the OC, and well, it won’t look too good if we get pulled over…)

    I met the guy getting married while we we're in college so a bunch of other college friends are going to be there. Its going to be a blast!

    Give us your ideas!

    Start the speech with "Well, I wanted to marry him, and he said yes, but then that cockblocking ho took him away...oh well...here's the speech..."
