Clearly, I'm well behind on podcasts but... maybe it IS an East Coast thing, because every wedding I've been to has done the garter/bouquet combo. Except mine. We just did the bouquet part, because the garter part is SO creepy and there was NO WAY my new husband was reaching up my dress in front of the entire world! Every time I've seen it, it's been awkward and uncomfortable and usually the husband takes the garter off with his teeth, and they play stripping music... Yechhhh. Looking back, I'm not even sure why I threw the bouquet, but it' really good we didn't do a garter toss because the woman who caught the bouquet was a lesbian, and the girlfriend of my best woman.
But then, we had chocolate frosting on our cake, and refused to do the chicken dance, and did not invite God to our wedding, and we ignored people clinking their glasses so we would kiss, so it's not like we were going for tradition at all...
Wedding. Ug.

I have to say this is the first that I've heard of the putting the garter on the bouquet catcher. In Australia is usually just a joke "You're next" kind of thing.

Wow, Geo. I was maid of honor in a wedding this weekend which is why I'm a week behind on podcasts. I have never encountered or heard of this cross-pollination of the bouquet and garter tosses that you spoke of. In my experience, the catchers are supposed to be "the next to get married," though not necessarily to each other, and it's not really taken seriously. The whole time you were talking about this awkward, creepy thing where potential strangers have to be so intimate I was mouth agog. That's just crazy.

I have to agree with Adam L. - must be an East Coast thing. Of all the weddings in memory here in the midwest where there was a bouqet/garter thing, it's been an all ages event. The garter catcher and bouqet catcher would simply have a dance together (so any potential hand/thigh yuchiness is entirely avoided).

Perhaps you could try to introduce this modification for your events, Geo, as it segues right into dance floor time with no awkwardness.

One who assumes
there exists a plan for his future
- designed by a god;

Is just like one who assumes
there's a plan for his game
- designed by a deck of cards.

Anyone who knows
how to win a game of cards
- knows uncertainty;

Anyone who knows
how to lose a game of cards
- knows the house eventually wins.

The whole "put the garter on the woman who caught the bouquet" thing must be an East-coast thing, because I've been to a number of weddings in the past 10 years and I've NEVER heard of or seen that before.

Most of the time only the bouquet is tossed, and even if they also do the garter, most of the time the gentleman who catches the garter puts it on his arm, not the young lady who caught the bouquet.

I caught the garter belt at a wedding once. I didn't bother putting it on the girl who caught the bouquet, mostly because I'd had sex with her very recently prior, thereby robbing the tradition of all its supposedly awkward fun.

Actually, the tradition as practiced at this particular wedding involved the groom removing the belt from the bride with his teeth, and the belt-catcher doing the same while putting it on the bouquet-catcher.

Like I said, we didn't bother doing it because it wouldn't have been awkward -- and therefore not amusingly uncomfortable -- with someone I'd already seen naked. But if I had to do it with a stranger, I'm honestly not sure I could. I think it might be beyond my awkwardness threshold. On the other hand, a ballroom full of people in various states of inebriation enthusiastically egging me on might turn out to be a powerfully persuasive force.

But the sense of awkwardness might linger unpleasantly for days afterwards.

All right kids- after much confusion- our winner is: CLAUDIO IBARRA.

(Sorry Andrew & Marc- Christopher Columbus was the character but the person was Stan Freberg. AND In Living Color is close but not right. A: That's not a person and B: the name of the band is "Living Colour.")

Tim Farley though technically first with all four correct is a part of the Geologic Team and thereby ineligible.

Congrats Claudio! Send me an e-mail to claim your prize.

Thanks to everyone for playing.

Woozle.

Balls, I come to the site, see no comments, spend 40 minutes figuring out the answers, post the answers, THEN 17 comments load up with my answers all ready said... I'm gonna go cry myself to sleep now.

Kelsey

1. Patton Oswalt
2. Carl Reiner
3. Stan Freberg
4. The intro to "What's your Favorite Colour" by Living Colour, which Corey Glover does main vocals for, but the intro doesn't really sound like him so it could be Muzz Skillings or Vernon Reid. But if I must choose one, I'll have to go with Glover.

Vincent

#1 Patton Oswalt
#2 Carl Reiner
#3 Jack Bennie
#4 Corey Glover from Living Colour

for me #1 was the hardest.

(if this is my second comment, delete it. I got no confirmation that it went through so might have mistyped the captcha)

Evil Eye

I only knew one for sure. #4 is Corey Glover.
I think I was hearing either Stephen Fry or Monty Python in the others, and a comedian I never heard if.

Patton Oswalt - "GAY!"
Carl Reiner - "Youre a good looking man, sir"

2. "You’re a good looking man, sir. - Carl Reiner, with Mel Brooks, "In the Coffeehouse" (1962)
3. "Oh- WHY?" - Stan Freberg, "Stan Freberg Presents the United States of America Volume One: The Early Years", "Columbus Discovers America: It's a Round, Round World", (1961)

(By the way, there's a typo in my name in the show notes.)

Blazing Saddles is pretty funny, and goofy.

Happened to be working from home when the podcast dropped so here's my shot:

1. Patton Oswalt
2. Carl Reiner
3. Stan Freberg
4. Corey Glover of Living Color. Not sure, I know that's from that song but I'm not sure if its a cover of it.
