Clueless groom hires Gollum to be his ring bearer (big mistake!)

As we know, what's funny to geeky people can be a turnoff for non-geeks. One reason we know? We can see it in the reactions of the non-geeks in the wedding video below.

On TLC's weddingsploitation TV show Four Weddings—a show on which four couples compete for a honeymoon, fercrissakes—one groom amped up the funny by having Gollum from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings as his ringbearer. (Whoever said that weddings were the bride's "special day" has obviously not married this groom.)

Although many of us reading this think that getting a hissing, shambling Gollum to toss fish at our wedding guests would be a wonderfully memorable event, the horrified bridesmaids thought the event was memorable only in a bad way.

Note to engaged people reading this: Consider having two weddings ... a traditional one for family and a non-traditional one for friends. After all, you don't want people to look back at your wedding with disgust.
