TRANSCRIPT

  • [Warning: This is the unexpurgated (read: slightly modified, though not necessarily improved) version of Brooke and Caseys Father of the Bride Wedding Toast. Sticklers for historical accuracy will have to rely on their own memories of what actually transpired. For reasons that will be quickly obvious, this is best viewed with a crowd of roughly 120 mostly 20-Somethings, a large majority of whom are fierce Red Sox loyalists, rabid Tar Heel fans and/or Democratsideally all three. An unknown, but apparently non-negligible fraction of this rowdy group almost certainly had BAC levels in excess of legally permitted limits for drivingnot that theres anything wrong with that This show is SUPPOSED to advance from slide to slide automatically, but in reality, you may occasionally have to click ENTER to move to the next slide. Enjoy.]
