Happy Independence Day!

Waving Flag Wednesday to you all, my little gingersnaps. Now I know not all my readers are American, but I'm wishing all that are, a happy 4th of July. Let's give a cheer for kicking those redcoats out of our country!

Since today is a holiday, I'm having a light blog day, but I'm not leaving you completely empty-handed.

What better way to celebrate Independence than to show people asking others to give up theirs?

No doubt you've seen some amazing Wedding Proposals via YouTube that put most other wedding proposals to shame. But how about some proposals that make you guys feel a little better?

Presenting... Twelve Hilariously Bad Marriage Proposals.

12 Hilariously Bad Wedding Proposals

I know that most of us feel Walmart is our second home, but please, please don't pop the question in a soda display in a supermarket. You can do better than that. (Link | Via)

Do you wanna know how this story ended? With the following headline:

“Man turned down by his girlfriend is charged with assault with a deadly weapon”. Seriously. (Link)

Outdoing a dish washing wedding proposal was very tough, but this guy managed to do so with a Facebook proposal. (Link)

Marriage proposal done in bad graffiti won't do it either. (Link)

Check your sign first. (Link)

Being romantic and using red roses won't compensate for your orthography faults. (Link)

When people advise you to take your girlfriend to her favorite restaurant to pop the question they are not talking about fast food. (Link)

Tricking your girlfriend into thinking you are dying while proposing may be a hell of funny prank, but not the best idea for a romantic marriage proposal.

Watch the video:

Puking would be a nice answer to this proposal. (Link)

Popping the question during a girl's most awkward moment is bad enough. And also, is it me, or is this guy totally failing at medical ethics?

What could possibly go wrong with a wedding proposal during Christmas on the first snow of the year? Oh, yes, your guy deciding to pee the message in the snow. (Link) Actually, I consider this to be somewhat a show of talent.

You want your proposal to be memorable, not unerasable. Also, there is always a chance she may say no.

I image somewhere in the world there's a Caroline Summers with a “no” tattooed on her back. (Link)

I had a much nicer proposal by Mr. G, who was only 19 years old. I flew out to L.A. to visit him, and one evening he took me out to Griffith Observatory. On the other side of that van there are some steps leading down to a trail that is no longer available to the public, but was at the time. We were standing there on the edge of the mountain, watching the sun go down, when he got down on one knee with the ring and asked me to marry him. He had some little speech prepared but I didn't remember a word of it because my brain was going, "OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!" Then he showed me the ring, I said, "YES!!!" and he got up, hugged and kissed me. We married less than a year later (when he was 20) and next month we will celebrate our 16th year of marriage.

So you see, there was no spelling it out with urine in the snow. I had a very nice proposal from Mr. G at a beautiful place, at sunset. Best decision I ever made.

And that's all I have for today. Do you have a story of an awesome or lousy proposal story to tell? Leave it in the the comments!

Until tomorrow everyone...
