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.

“Man turned down by his girlfriend is charged with assault with a deadly weapon”. Seriously.
Watch the video:
I image somewhere in the world there's a Caroline Summers with a “no” tattooed on her back.
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...
