Then leave a long pause, and just say 'LOL'.
and also say 'i'll make it short' - and then produce a document the size of a cideo recorder to 'emphasise' its really long and aren't I funny.
one of the scariest things I've ever had to do.
I just talked about what a good friend the groom was (not hard, I've known him for 22 years and he's like a brother to me) a few allusions to his roguish past, gave praise to the bride and thanked everyone for being there.
(Speaking of which, I FOUND THE PHOTO!!! Go me. Conclusively, my cat > your cat.)
(And I severely doubt that. My cat is King of Cats)
Indiana Jones is an asshole, btw. Most unbelievable archeologist ever, and not because of the big action antics, but because he's an IDIOT. Case closed.
(My cat was a cat GOD.)
F'real. I named my cat after Indiana Jones.
Even the cake was in tiers
I wish i didn't find that so funny
My friend (who was the best man) organised his speech around four themes relating to the groom:

just returns lots and lots of shit
don't get hammered beforehand
don't use jokes off the internet - everyone knows them
be rude - but not so rude you offend the bride's granny
don't completely upstage the groom and actually be nice about him - it's his big day, after all
do grip the mike in a hardcore punk stylee. it's always a winner.
