There's an old adage, "Never believe or remember anything someone tells you at a wedding or a funeral." Both events are packed to the gills with queasy and conflicting emotions. A person says things at both events that they immediately regret; extreme sadness/joy does funny things with one's tongue. The brain is out to lunch.
