Butt ugly Wedding bouquets


White/ivory cascade $75.00 Lavender mix. $30.00 Red rose $45.00 Mixed bouquet $50.00 contact me if interested can do custom orders.


Now there’s an interesting sales technique. I’m no floral expert, but those look like perfectly serviceable wedding bouquets. I mean, I’d happily eat any one of those. Maybe they’re trying to use reverse psychology on us? Maybe they’re trying to appeal to the hipster crowd, who would only purchase flower arrangements ironically?

Or maybe, the ad was put up by this person:

retail florish


looking for experienced person , for full time to work in local florish shop . need experience with
order taking solfware please !! only experienced need apply # xxx xxx xxxx rob ,janice or betty lou

I usually only feel florish after I’ve had a few too many Belgian Tripels. And, oddly enough, one of those incidents led to me holding a butt-ugly wedding bouquet at a chapel in Las Vegas.* So now this all makes sense.

Thanks, Anne and Jennifer!

*This may actually be true. Or it may not.

      Actually, I was going for Multiple Personality Disorder which is also sometimes known as Diassociative Identity Disorder*, but the software thing works too.

      *It drives me slightly more crazy when people refer to this as being schizophrenic. Schizophrenia is a seperate and completely different disorder.

          [peanut butter ot] To me, the “I’m schizophrenic and so am I” shirts and jokes stopped being funny when I was in 6th grade and knew an actual schizophrenic. I do still find the “I do what the voices tell me” shirts funny and I would love an “I have MPD (or DID) and so do I” shirt. We all have different tastes in shirts, humor, and whatnot. As my mom used to say, “that’s why there’s two types of peanut butter.*” [/0t]

          I knew the difference at a young age as well, my aunt gave me her old psych 101 book when I was a kid and I had a lot of fun diagnosing my siblings with it. My mother found it amusing until she realised there were a few chapters devoted to sexual disorders and confiscated it until I was in high school.

          [psychiatry corey] thanks for being thoughtful about the DID/schizophrenia issue. The distinction is correct. Schizophrenia is a chronic, usually debilitating mental illness defined by auditory and or visual hallucinations, delusional beliefs, thought disorganization, loss of interest/motivation/daily functionality without depressed mood. Antipsychotics work pretty well but carry a lot of long term side effects and sometimes make people think slower, which a lot of folks don’t like. DID/multiple personality is somewhat controversial as not all psychiatrists are sure it exists, and it may be a side product of overzealous therapy causing patients to eventually believe that different emotional states ar actually separate people….but other folks have had striking experiences with different personalities or “alters.”. So I won’t get much more into that topic, aside from noting it is a rarely seen disorder and somewhat out of the mainstream.
          probably more about psychiatry than anyone wanted from YSaCL.

          Thank you dretak (or is that Dr Etak?) for the cogent explaination.

          Way I was taught it, schizophrenics (may) develop another identity yo cope with the stimuli they are perceiving, or they (may) create an identity for those stimuli.

          Whereas, in MPD/DID, the “main” personality has “blackouts” where other, often unique, personalities/identities are expressed.

          [corey] Schizophrenics do not have multiple personalities unless they also have MPD (extremely rare). Schizophrenics do hear voices and form complex alternate realities in which they try to fit our actual reality. There’s more to it, but I really don’t have the pysch background to lay it all out.

    Butt Ugly Wedding Bouquets does a lot of business, based on some of the weddings I’ve attended. I believe they’re in the same strip mall as Gag Me With a Spoon Wedding Cakes and the very popular Cringe-Inducing Bridesmaid Dress Boutique.

      I’ve done entertainment at more wedding receptions than I care to remember, and the Chicken Dance has always been requested by the bride if it was played.

      Had I known I was going to lose 55lbs after getting married, I would have opted for gold plated tin rings, or plastic gumball machine rings for that matter, instead of the non-resizable titanium. I’m currently rocking a stylish hair elastic to keep the ring from falling off until I get the new rings (husband has the same problem).

          Bless you, Christina! I lost about 60 on Jenny Craig, and now I found it all again and more, and am wondering if I need to go to some inpatient eating disorder place. And if Pizza Hut delivers there.
          Maybe you and hubby can get new rings as a celebration of your achievement!

          I was only able to do it because I didn’t have a choice, it was either stay the way I was and end up on insulin, or make some lifestyle changes. Considering I have an aversion to needles, I was willing to give up venti mochas and white bread. Atkins might have been a fad, but you’d be surprised at what a difference a few carbs makes.

          I demand science create a pill I can take once a day, or twice at the most, that will allow me to eat all the chocolate and fresh bread and cheese I want, and still lose 2 lbs a week. In half a year, I’ll be off the diabetic meds, off the high blood pressure meds, off the cholesterol meds, and maybe off the anti-depressants. Then I just have to take the pill once in a while.

          I hope to take more proactive steps once I get away from the Social Worker From Hell Boss I have now, and if that means retiring, then I will be walking daily and eating sensibly. I always eat less at home than at work. Too many cages to clean here. 8)

          Now if you’ll excuse me, the fever is insisting I go back to sleep.

          Windrose, dark chocolate (more than 80% cocoa) is low in sugar and has the added bonus of fiber, antioxidents and can act as an anti-depressant. True, it has a lot more saturated fat, but you don’t need very much to be satisfied.
          My mom was on everything you listed above until just recently. She started going to the gym about two years ago, walking the treadmill, lost 40lbs and she’s off everything except metformin.

          [EMS corey] Titanium rings are frowned on by the ambulance staff due to the fact that you can’t cut them off with the ring-cutter most ambulances carry. [/tourniquet amputation corey]

    I get the butt ugly. I mean, this florist is unloading her blown roses on some poor unsuspecting bride who’ll be lucky to have any petals left by the time she gets down the aisle. This might be kind of interesting in a symbolic deflowering of the bride kind of way, though.

    The blown roses also go a long way toward explaining why she’s charging so much less for most of a bunch of roses than she is for one or two stems of lilies, even if they are Stargazers, which I can’t quite tell from the picture.

    And then there’s the whole feathers and creepy plastic spirals thing. Ew.

    I appreciate her honesty. Not, you know, a lot.
