What will they think of next?

I was watching tv the other day-- frankly, when am I not?-- and I saw the most hilarious commercial. They were advertising for a local wedding show. They advertised fashion shows! Taste testing booths! Hundreds of exhibitors! And for the guys? A "grooms room"!

A what now? I had so many thoughts running through my mind. Let's see... a bouncy castle/ball pit setup where men in stocking feet jump around, dive and play while the big girls make all the decisions. A poker/cigar-smoking/Swedish massage room where sexy (unwifely) women take care of his every need. A small, hot windowless room with a couple of ancient GQ magazines, piped in elevator music and some hard plastic chairs to sit on while they wait for their brides to finish rubbing paper perfume samples on their delicate wrists. The mind boggles.

All I can say is poor guys. It's a pretty big day for them too but they seem to be left by the wayside with no bigger decisions to make than what time to pick up their future wives from whatever event they're guest-of-honour at/hosting. Poor saps. And in the forseeable future it'll never change. Thank goodness.
