Nothing against the writer. Could be better, though.
Weak, weak, Gypsy FP.

There is a popular TV freakumentary in the UK right now called "My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding" which features real-life gypsies getting married in gaudy clothes etc etc...which gives the piece it's 'two cultural reference' quota.
If you already knew that and still think it's weak, then I'll shut up. I'm not trying to make you like it.
Thought it was really good, some good gags in there.
I agree you probably need to be familiar with the gypsy lifestyle (and their standing in our society) to fully appreciate the references
Hi Rikkor for a cultural translation of "Big Fat Gypsy Wedding" just think "Most American Weddings".
I am not editing NewsBiscuit this week, and so today's front page was a surprise to me when I logged on this morning when it made me laugh out loud.
Excellent idea jampot - well done. I can see that if you didn't live in the UK you wouldn't get the reference but then I might humbly say 'I think I may be missing something' rather than declaring that it was weak. That's all. Oh except to say another fantastic picture from red!
Al, you probably meant to write "most American weddings to which I would be invited."
Given your limited social skills Rikkor, I would be surprised if you got invited to any weddings at all. Great FP jampot. Do forward it to your chum.
But now, on BBC TV News this morning, I see that someone is getting married at their local Kentucky Fried Chicken!
Still, one of their pairs of their parents were married at MacDonald's, so it's sort of a family tradition.
Bet she's a bit of a whopper.
Getting married at KFC? Er, hang on...
[Leafs through memories of gags to paraphrase]
I bet it will start out with some juicy breasts and thighs and by the end there'll be nothing but a depressed feeling, a ghastly mess and a greasy box
[Sound of coat being retrieved]
LOL! and a desire to rinse your mouth out.
There should be a bone reference in the KFC joke. Can't remember where it goes. In the greasy box?
Ooh, Golgo. I was just reading down this string and thought that a bone and box reference would be appropriate. You beat me to it. I'm so jealous. You've put my pope's nose out of joint.
They decided on KFC because the kids eat free
Shame the best man forgot the onion ring
