Man In Hysterics After Finding Brutal Best Man Speech In Book He Bought Online
It's no secret that speeches at weddings are often packed full of terrible jokes and embarrassing anecdotes.
As was the best man speech Reece Wane recently found inside the pages of a book he bought about the Teutonic Knights.
Reece, who lives in Leeds, was surprised when two sheets of A4 paper fell out of the book and into his lap.
The book cost the hotel manager £6.50 but the discovery of the rather brutal speech was absolutely priceless.
The 27-year-old is now hoping to return the authorless speech to its original writer as a favour from "one bloke to another".
It was written for the wedding of a Tom Fletcher and his bride-to-be Becky, but it's unclear whether the big day has occurred yet or not.
Reece describes the speech as "hilarious".
He said: "It's so generic and he's used so many classic British humour jokes.
"There is some real personal stuff in there and you can see he's properly trying to wind his bate mate up.
"When I found it me and Molly [his partner] had such a laugh about it.
"I wonder if he popped it in there for safekeeping and just forgot where he put it."
He continued: "If the wedding hasn't happened yet then I do want to get it back to him before the big day. There's a lot of work gone into it."
The speech begins with a joke at the groom's expense, saying: "If there's anybody here this afternoon who is feeling, nervous, apprehensive and queasy at the thought of what lies ahead, it's probably because you have just got married to Tom Fletcher."
It goes on to make a quip about the usher not looking better than the best man and compares the groom's dancing skills to those of David Brent from The Office.
The speech's author also makes a sex joke about the vicar before calling the speech the "worst five minutes of his life" and telling the bride that her "worst five minutes will probably come later tonight".
But the whole thing ends on a happy note with a heartfelt toast to his best pal.
Reece, who bought the book on Amazon earlier this month added: "We have tried to track down the author but haven't had any luck.
"I'd like to get it back to him. He probably spent days writing it and now he has lost it.
"If I'd lost one, I'd be gutted.
"It hasn't been there for long because the paper is really fresh.
"I've got his back if he wants to have it returned, for sure."
