Motion sickness is good luck
Some say rain on your wedding day is a good luck charm, but how about a little vomit during your marriage proposal? Darrel Hamilton of Reedily, California, came up with the idea to pop the question to his girlfriend exactly a year ago while he was traveling to the coast. “I was listening to music, and the beautiful landscape around me inspired me to want to get a good view of the beautiful terrain back at home for my girlfriend to see,” Hamilton told Reader’s Digest.
But his proposal in the air didn’t go exactly as he envisioned. After a few minutes of flying in a helicopter, Hamilton started to feel ill. Trying to keep it together you can see his face turning a pale shade of gray in the video he posted to YouTube. As the pilot circles so that Hamilton’s girlfriend can spot the proposal sign he’d made, he quickly eeks out “will you marry me” and hands her the ring before vomiting right at her feet. But a little puke didn’t completely ruin the event. Hamilton said not only did his fiancée happily say yes to his marriage proposal gone-wrong, but they were able to visit the sign he made once they were back on solid ground. And then they headed over to tell their parents the good news.
“My dad a former military infantry soldier who jumped out of helicopters gave me a hard time about throwing up,” admits Hamilton. But not his friends. Instead, they thought it was hysterical and convinced Hamilton to post his marriage proposal fail to YouTube.
Puppy love on pause
When a Hungarian IT company found a stray Puli dog wandering the streets outside their office in Budapest, they took him in. That’s how Floppy became the official company pooch. But even with all his new IT co-workers to lick, Floppy felt something was missing from his furry life. When he came across the Facebook page of Mark Zuckerberg’s (yes, that Mark Zuckerberg) Puli dog—Beast, it was love at first click. So this past Valentine’s Day, Floppy launched his own video proposing marriage to Beast. Perhaps, not a total marriage proposal fail, as so far Beast has not responded and Floppy hasn’t given up hope. Some might say Floppy is only after Beast’s money, but if you watch Floppy’s video you can see this puppy love is the real thing.
