There have been some great reviews for Iron Man 3 this week. We're now eagerly awaiting (Bride's) review of tonight's late performance of Old Rusty Bloke.
"We were going to serve Tesco burgers at today's reception, but decided against it in the end. You know what it's like at a wedding, there's bridal this and bridle that - we really didn't need any more bridle……"
"The severe weather warnings are out this week. They're telling motorists to pack an old blanket and fresh food, to beg a loan of a shovel from a neighbour, and to carry plenty of de-icer. So that's something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue…"
"It's Thanksgiving this week, when our North American cousins traditionally gather in family groups to eat, drink and give thanks for the good things in life. Well it's time for thanksgiving here, too. I'd like to thank everyone today for coming to the wedding, I thank my lovely wife for giving me a beautiful daughter in Julia, and I thank the alterations department at Moss Bros for letting out the waist on this suit…"
"When they started going out, Dave took Sharon out to eat eight times, then on their ninth date, he took her to see the new Batman movie. So their relationship up to that point was dinner, dinner, dinner, dinner, dinner, dinner, dinner, dinner BATMAN."
"A few days ago on the 4th July, Americans celebrated their historic parting from Great Britain with fireworks and barbecues.

"So my daughter Phoebe chose the weekend of the Diamond Jubilee for her wedding. Well, she's always been a diamond for us… expensive and shiny. And I just hope she's not going to be too hard on Paul…."
"This weekend, the Olympic Flame finally sets out on its 67 day journey around the UK. My new son-in-law David reckons that's nothing - he's been carrying a torch for Jennifer since they met in primary school…"
"We are all happy to be here to celebrate the wedding of Rebecca and George, in the same year that marks 100 years since the first successful expedition to the North Pole. Of course, I’m not suggesting a wedding day is anything like a 3000 km hike, but George - here’s some Kendal Mint Cake just in case…"
"Well, it's finally happened. After almost two years of one-sided decisions where the dominant partner's wishes took precedence, the underdog finally got his way. No, not David Cameron backing down to Nick Clegg on health reforms, but Alan's choice of honeymoon destination."
"In a week when Britain's national debt topped £1trillion, it's good to see Cath and Martin - and of course Cath's Mum and the rest of the family - going for an understated, modest wedding, without too much unnecessary extravagance. In fact, they've been spending my money quite carefully…."
"As we celebrate the union of Linda and Paul, the country is facing the worst economic and political turmoil we've seen since the eighties. You're probably too young to remember the eighties, Paul, but a woman was making all the decisions then, too…"
