Man Proposes With Ring In Chicken Burger!

Posted by Rachel Donnelly in Funny Strange on July 05, 2013

Not every proposal can be the stuff of Hollywood movies. Often the most simple guesture can be the most romantic; a proposal while watching a movie on the couch, a picnic at the place you first met, a homecooked meal or romantic beach walk. 

The photo below is from a lady called Ann, who shared her proposal with the world through Facebook. Her now-finacé, Dennis, proposed to her with quite a special chicken burger indeed - one that happened to include an extra side order of engagement ring!

By the looks of things Ann was both delighted with her chicken burger and her engagement ring, and is now planning to dance the Funky Chicken at her wedding reception!

Video - Celebrity Filled Best Man Tribute to Couple

Posted by Rachel Donnelly in Celebrity News Funny Video on July 03, 2013
In days gone by, all the best man had to do at a wedding was to ensure the groom didn’t get ridiculously drunk and make a few jokes at his expense, but Down man Stephen Henning has raised the bar for best men everywhere and he’s raised it very high indeed.

Stephen’s brother Michael married Victoria last Friday and as a tribute to the couple, Stephen broadcast a video of messages from celebrities that he had been compiling since the start of the year. He sent each celebrity a request to follow him on Twitter so he could send each a direct message to ask them to help out with the video.

Not expecting it to work, considering how many requests celebrities get, Stephen eventually ended up with recorded messages from a whole host of celebrities and sports personalities including: Graeme McDowell, Stephen Ferris, Jonny Evans, Rory Best, Eamonn Holmes, Ash, Chris O’Dowd, and comedian John Bishop, as well as many more. He then edited them into a ten minute long video of best wishes and congratualtions for the happy couple.

He's certainly raised the bar for best man tributes in the future!
