Today's live chat with Carolyn Hax is her wedding hootenanny of horrors:

http://live.washingtonpost.com/carolyn-hax-li...

Samples:

My mother-in-law sent out her own invitations to our wedding. She felt her name wasn't big enough on our invitations. It was exactly the same size as my parents' names and only slightly smaller than the bride and groom's names.

***

My mother-in-law wrote thank you notes to all the groom's relatives, telling them I was too ill-bred to write thank you notes on my own, so she was doing it for me. She completed the job and announced this at the rehearsal dinner, before I even saw the gifts.

***

Hi Carolyn, I've recently been invited to three showers, all of which are hosted by the bride herself (did I miss something? when did that become appropriate?). For the first, I've been requested to bring THREE gifts, each from a different registry. One has to be unwrapped to put on display, one has to be wrapped in a specific color wrapping paper (god forbid the gift pile not be color-coordinated), and one has to be for a specific room in her house (in my case, the guest bedroom). For the second shower, the invitation says "no boxed gifts," but then also lists where she's registered. Perplexed, I look at the registry and find that she's only registered for gift cards! Apparently, we can't even be trusted to give her pre-selected gifts. Shower #3 cuts the crap and just provides a link to PayPal the bride money.

What a weird thread, though.
Yeah, one and the same. It wouldn't be nearly as weird if they weren't spreading their gayness all over the place.

However, it is "Satan's Homepage" so you should probably expect a certain amount of weirdness.

You know what's funny? That moron says I will troll you because it's "my" thread, but it's his buddies who are trying to "take it over". So that dummy inadvertently insulted his buddies, again.

Well, in his defense, there were some pretty big words used.

The autistic kid will be fine. I really feel for the children of the evil woman who wrote the letter.

True, however, in my experience with that one, the bigger they are, the more he likes them.

Maybe not words though.

wow on the last one... older niece "ohso graciously" told (ahem, demanded) her mohter that SIL could be entirely in charge of her baby shower. SIL takes this to be R's roudnabout way of announcing she's PG (which R isn't yet, and that started a fight).$20 says R would ghost plan it all and bitch all the way to teh bank that her "mother cant do anything right" (which would be to ever-changing, exacting specifications).

but, since then, they've had anotehr faling out, including R saying that SIL will never get to see the (not even a twitch in their daddy's pants yet) children. if R even hints at having SIL do ANYthing for a baby shower, ill spring for airfare to get some of you good peeps out here to set her straight. Shes' been such a demanding, ungrateful little beyotch about stuff like that and to her mtoher lately
