Napkin Please - Behind The Awkwardness

“My Uncle’s wedding with his new wife. A picture perfect moment as they ride away in their petty cab… ruined by my sister accidentally throwing a red napkin instead of a rose petal.”

    The first thing that came to mind is a song by the Monks from their Bad Habits album – Nice Legs, Shame About The Face

  2. Venetia says:

    I’m getting a New Orleans-ish vibe from this. Maybe it’s the groom–he looks like a jazz musician to me. Cool cat.

  3. Lee says:

    I did not think of Lady Gaga. In other news, the ‘gracious’ pose with her arms out makes the napkin-in-face all the more perfect.

    Why doesn’t anything like this happen at weddings I go to? AWESOME!

  6. NH4Animals says:

    Lady Gaga?

  7. D says:

    epic snapshot!!!

  8. Joi says:

    She still looks excited to have that on her face. You go bride, you go.

  9. velcrodots says:

    In the spirit of Lady Gaga, she made sure he can’t read her napkin face

  10. Face, meet napkin. Napkin, meet face. Pic, meet win. Win, meet pic

    I love this picture. I love that it’s a wedding picture but the bride is in red, not white. I love that everyone is happy (well, can’t tell with the bride but the hand movement looks happy). I love the napkin. Total classic.

    I wanna see more brides say no to white and start wearing COLOR, too. Not just on AFP. Everywhere.

  12. Sidekick says:

    …and she still looks FAB-U-LOUS!

    This looks like such a fun wedding. I wish I had been on the guest list. What could better than a wedding that includes a Pedi cab,a stylish groom in a snazzy hat and shades a leggy bride in a bright red dress, and a little old lady in blue with a big sun hat. All I can say it this is all kinds of AWESOME!!

  14. Missy says:

    Heheh. The Groom is waving “Thank you! Now I can be the star in the wedding for a change!”

  15. SS says:

    The awkward community celebrates Duluth’s first successful napkin face transplant.

  16. MCR says:

    Wonderful color-coordinated awkwardness…although I’m a little concerned about the woman at the left edge with the boy’s leg sticking out of whatever she’s holding!

  17. Jim says:

    I thought she was wearing a red bib in a windstorm.

  18. janiejane says:

    I like the lady in blue with the hat! Dude, she’s awesome awkward!

  19. Misty says:

    it is a PEDIcab (from the latin ped – for foot).

  20. DeductiveReason says:

    Take me, I’m all yours…except the face.

  21. coNNie says:

    I take back my Lady Gaga comment.
    I made it when no other comments were posted.
    I thought I was so clever and original.
    Obviously not.

  22. Lori says:

    “……………always the bridesmaid eh?!?!?” marnie FINALLY got her revenge!

    • scruffy says:

      Ha. Very good. Yeah it was an accident all right.

      โ€œThanks everyone. It was wonderful and now itโ€™s off to the โ€ฆโ€ Splat. Napkin in the face.

      Screw with Marnie will ya?

  23. Stacy says:

    I’m the king of the world!

  24. Don says:

    I was thankful for the explanation about it being a napkin. I was scared this marriage was already doomed and he had thrown in the towel…literally!

  25. Rachel says:

    I’m with the rest of them… I thought it was a Lady Gaga wedding lol

  26. sam says:

    the legs are very easy on the eye ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. Harry says:

    She threw a napkin, it blew into her face, she removed it. RUINED?? I think not. What’s the big deal? Take another picture.

  28. joye says:

    I assume a “petty cab” is a cab which behaves churlishly in insignificant matters out of sheer spite.

    Or a misunderstanding of the word pedicab.

    One of the two.

    • Penny says:

      lol yes, it must be one or the other ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Chewy says:

      Ha! Thats a win. Nice work.

    • Arielemc says:

      My thoughts exactly!

      • PugMom says:

        Second time I have snort/laughed in 10 minutes on this site.
        Some very funny people.
        I love the word “churlishly” and I vow I will try to work it into one of my future comments.
        I’m still trying to work out in my mind how you confuse a rose petal with a fully unfolded red napkin….I have my doubts

    • Samuraicarrot says:

      Ah. Good two sea the ole grammar Nazi wore machine is up and running. Nothin’ like the smell of diesel en the mourning.

      (Okay, I must admit that the use of the word “churlishly” does win you points. So, you win this time, but the war isn’t over grammar Nazi.)

    I’m Tellin’ Y’all It’s Sabotage!

  30. Jivetalk says:

    Either this is a funny FAIL. Or the uncle married Lady Gaga?

  31. CarrieM says:

    Hopefully the napking wasn’t used for something like a meatball sub….

  32. T says:

    i think she’s joking, playing like Lady Gaga in her red dress and face covering?

  33. Caitlin B says:

    I thought it was Gaga until I read the caption!

  34. debmc says:

    Lady Gaga???

  35. anna says:

    “Accidentally” threw a red napkin huh? Someone does not like their new Auntie!

  36. sallyomalley says:

    AWESOME timing on the pic……I got great sequence shots of my brother at his wedding when he opened up his car door and smelled the Limburger cheese my Dad had stuck in there HOURS before…..priceless!

  37. coNNie says:

    …and lady GaGa was born.

  38. CarrieM says:

    The bride’s arms look like she’s getting ready to belt out the last phrase of a big song: “If I can make it here, I can make it anywhere….”

  39. Little Miss Sunshine says:

    How does someone “accidently” throw a red napkin instead of a rose petal?

  40. The Kid says:

    Thought she was going for that Lady Gaga look.

  41. Adam says:

    And this is where Lady Gaga got her inspiration. Outta my face!

  42. Terri says:

    this cracked me up! I love it…perfect timing with that shot. ๐Ÿ™‚

  43. DanielC says:

    I thought maybe it was a Lady Gaga costume.

  44. mrs5180 says:

    The Fates have a sense of humor, so of course it hits her in the face— instead of harmlessly blowing right by her…..

  45. Kelly says:

    Doesn’t Lady Gaga have a costume that looks JUST like that?

  46. stacy says:

    the moment wasn’t ruined by the napkin! it was made a thousand times better!

  47. ashley says:

    and here i thought it was a lady gaga impression

  48. Kazz says:

    Despite being in the Witness Protection Program, Marge managed to lead a full and satisfying life.

  49. Cori says:

    Let them Eat Cake! Now they have the napkin to go with it!
