This may be something that’s been around Teh Internets a while, but this is the first time I’ve seen it. It’s a slideshow called Waffle House Wedding. The original email (from some unknown person) said, “For those of you not from the south, the appeal of Waffle House may seem foreign.” My co-worker who makes frequent trips to Idaho added, “I’m printing this out and putting it in my hope chest! I wonder if that fancy Waffle House in Lewiston that Rozette and I went to will be booked?”
Most of the stuff like this that drops into my inbox is crap, but I this I had to see. And much like the much-referenced train wreck, once I started the
slideshow I couldn’t bring myself to stop it. It just kept unfolding in all its comic horror… It’s like watching the strange customs of beings on a different planet, and yet it’s also kind of
awesome in a weird sorta way.
Anyway, the original came as a PowerPoint slideshow, as these things often do, so I uploaded it to Google Docs because PowerPoint sucks for this stuff. (In case you can’t see the slideshow below, here’s a direct link.) My favorite bits are the cigarettes and the pancake batter facial. At least, I hope that’s batter…
