Hopefully you learned an important lesson on today's show: when giving a toast to the Bride & Groom at their wedding, it's best to go conservative. If you're not a funny person, don't try to be with a live mic and a few drinks under your belt.
Here's a few examples from KRZ listeners of toasts that went horribly wrong.
I was at a college friend's wedding where the best man not only called the bride the groom's ex gf's name during the best man speech, but he was also later escorted from the reception by the groom's father for trying to drink the water from the centerpieces.
My sister was my maid of honor. She was trying to be funny but wasn't successful and by the end of her speech, people were asking why she was in our wedding if she hated us so much.
My best (male) friend had gotten married. I was the Bride's Maid (since I introduced them) and my buddy's obnoxious older brother was
Best man. He started out his toast ok, but then pulled a Cybil and mentioned when they both went to Tijuana and thought they got clap from 2 girls they picked up, only to find out they had bites from bed mites. The room got quiet and I had to jump in to stop him.
I was maid of honor in my sister's wedding. I didn't make an embarrassing speech because I promised my sister but I proceeded to get really drunk and gave everyone lap dances!
My bro best man, said "not sure what that pastor was smoking". My wife's family is very religious. Ummm did not go over well.
I went 2 a wedding earlier this year & the best man (which was the groom's brother) got up 2 make a speech & was drunk & in his speech told everyone that he slept w/ the bride the day before the wedding!
Just went to a wedding where the best man talked about the bride being a reformed whore. He talked about the time he and the groom took home these girls that turned out to be men and that he wanted to sleep with the bride's sister.
I was at a wedding and the best man said in front of everyone that he and the bride were sleeping together for quite some time and then starts laughing and says oh I'm only kidding. And then he says no really I honestly I would really like to have sex with the bride she's hot so if this marriage doesn't last I would really like to have sex with her. She looks like she would be fun in bed!
As part of the best man speech he let it slip that the bride was pregnant.
I hit the Back Mountain Trail in Dallas yesterday to prepare for this weekend's HERITAGE EXPLORER BIKE TOUR. A nice muddy day in the woods is just what I needed!
This will be my first time doing the Heritage. It looks like an awesome event.
Here's the deal if you want in:
Heritage Explorer Bike Tour & Festival
Saturday June 15 8a-3p
Blakely Borough Rec Complex--Peckville
This is a non-competitive family-friendly event featuring 4 routes depending on your ability. Proceeds from the ride benefit the continuing development of the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail, a 70+ mile rail-trail system from the NY state border to the Susquehanna River in Pittston.
It was a big time KIDS WEEKEND for yours truly. Saturday I hosted my monthly Big Brother event. This month we raced go-carts at Pike's Creek in Lehman which is always a good time. The newest little in the BBBS program, Chase, has some serious skills behind the wheel!
But, you didn't think I was gonna let him win, did you?
We wrapped up a fun day with a trip to Hillside Dairy to feed the animals and feed ourselves with the best ice cream around.
Think you would like to make a difference in a young kid's life? Why don't you volunteer to be a Big Brother or Big Sister today.
It was a story that seemed to hit the news with little fanfare: The TSA dropped its effort to allow small planes on knives.
Back in March suddenly small knives, banned since Sept 11, 2001 were once again allowed on planes. The head of the Transportation Security Administration claimed at the time that TSA agents would have more time to focus on more important things then measuring the length of knives.
So let me get this straight. My bottled water would be confiscated, but if I had a Swiss Army knife in my pocket it was perfectly ok for me to board the plane.
Wasn't it a sharp object (box cutter) that enabled the September 11th terrorists to hijack 4 planes? And why would any passenger need to have a knife of any kind at 30,000 feet other than to slice peanuts in half to make their in-flight snack last longer?
So, thank you TSA, for not only showing common sense, but responding to the requests of pilots and flight attendants.
It's the SEXY PHOTO SHOOT we hope you've been waiting for! Yesterday Fast Freddie paid off his "Dancing with the Stars" bet and posed with the crew from YOUR PIXEL PERFECT of Scranton.
This one was inspired by a classic "Seinfeld" episode.
Kramer: George, it's the timeless art of seduction. You gotta join in the dance. She sends you an enticing photo, you send her one right back. George: Well, I don't know. Kramer: Well, as you know, I've always been something of a photog. Jerry: Oh, yeah, I like this idea.
Nice sign placement here, Freddie!
We hear the crew at YOUR PIXEL PERFECT was caught off guard when Freddie walked out of the dressing room with nothing but a guitar covering his naughty bits.
BIG THANKS to Sandy & Ed at YOUR PIXEL PERFECT for doing an amazing job.
Remember, for the month of June, if you mention you heard about them on 98.5 KRZ, they will take $50 off Senior pictures or photo booth rentals.
We highly recommend YOUR PIXEL PERFECT for your wedding photos, family or Senior portraits and Boudoir sessions.
Sue and I were planning our next vacation over the weekend. We did a random survey among friends: What’s the #1 vacation spot you’d recommend?
The place that kept popping up was Costa Rica. It has some of the world’s most amazing beaches in both the Pacific and Caribbean, active volcanos, rain forests and mountains. We are definitely looking into a trip there possibly late summer or early fall.
What is your GO TO vacation spot? Where would you recommend if you were our travel guide?
Here’s some of the suggestions from today’s show--

Did you hear about the sisters that were asked to leave the King of Prussia Mall because they were wearing hats that said "F*&% Cancer"? The full word was spelled out, but the C was replaced with a pink ribbon.
They were wearing the hats to honor their Mom who recently passed away from cancer. And here's the ironic part: they were shopping at the mall to buy dresses to wear to their Mom's funeral.
Obviously the mall was insensitive here especially when the timing is taken into account. But this is where Lissa and I disagreed.
Lissa thinks that if you can buy it at the mall you should be able to wear it at the mall.
We all have our own ways of dealing with personal tragedies, whether its cancer or the loss of a loved one. But I still think the mall has every right to ask them to remove the hats since it is a public place.
Here's what some of you had to say this morning--
Saying f*** cancer is probably a way for those girls to grieve, however it is not appropriate in a public place where there are children.
This is absurd!!!! My mom has had cancer for 13 years and if you have ever personally dealt with a loved one battling cancer, it is a disgusting & ugly disease. There is no other way to describe it other than f*ck cancer. and if the mall has no posted rules concerning offensive language, they shouldn’t be allowed to make them leave. I know for sure I will NEVER shop at that mall.
I agree with Lissa. I lost both parents to cancer. So yea... F cancer!!!! I'm happy the girls did what they did & that they felt strong enough to do that. I lived in that area & wore ALOT worse to that mall & wasn’t asked to leave. My F-word was full & had the C-word on the back.. This was approx 15 yrs ago
Look around the mall. Do you know how many stores have stuff like that right in the windows. Hot Topics, Spencers,and more.
I have cancer and I don't agree with using the f word I have 2 daughters 17 and 14 and I tell them I am fighting this but I won't let them use that word unfortunately we are dealt things we don't like and don't understand.
People don't get kicked out of malls for having tattoos that have the f word.. But a hat isn't okay? At least this was for a good cause.
I work at a mall and I have seen more offensive things than that hat. Female body parts and young "men" walking around with their pants way below their butt cheeks. I feel anyone offended by this has never experienced cancer first hand. I have had 2 very close and wonderful people die from this ruthless disease. It is an awful way to die. Kudos to those women.
I agree w/ both of u usually I pick a side but this has 1 Hell of a gray area due to timing however, the hat still spells it out clearly
Would much prefer they begin approaching the young men who walk around with their ASSES hanging out of their jeans!!!! Extremely embarrasing.
There are better ways to show your support against cancer. That slogan isn't proving anything.
That is absolutely ridiculous wearing that was perfectly fine You can go to store inside the mall and buy worse than that If they're going to criticize people on the words they can wear on the clothing. Maybe they should make people wear more clothing because I'd rather read that than see parts of people that we’re not supposed to see.
I say F that. Have you seen what they sell in Spencer's? Also I'm offended by Red Sox jerseys but they let those people in!
Interesting question. If the ladies were wearing the curse word item they purchased in a store at that mall, would they have to kick them out?
