Something Blue

I was at a wedding over the weekend for some friends. During dinner, there was a trivia game and each table (ours was a table of five UPC folk) were able to submit their own questions for round :

  • After the 2012 earthquake in Haiti, what type of plane was JoEllen evacuated on? ((DC-3)
  • What is the tallest building in the US? ((Willis Tower))
  • What is Chuck Noris’ first name? ((Carlos))

Round two was an entire section on wedding trivia — who knew weddings cost so much and people married so late in life. This one in particular stood out for the comment delivered with such comedic timing half a beat later:

“In the phrase ‘Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue,’ what does blue signify?” (half-beat) “Balls.”

The correct answer is actually purity, love, and fidelity ((https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Something_old)). I liked the first answer better — which also indicates that I’m apparently still 12 years old.
