Recently, a few of us was discussing funny happenings by wedding emcees. One had this to contribute:
A wedding where the groom was waiting for the bride to enter. Standing beside the bridegroom, the wedding emcee want to say, “Dear guests! Our bridegroom had been waiting for his bride to appear!”
Instead, what came out was, “Dear guests! Our bridegroom had no choice but to wait for his bride to appear!” (Chinese proverb used. Meaning to that effective.)
Nervousness and stage fright seriously mangled up speech abilities.
