Master storyteller Elyse Myers has people rolling at her 'edible plates' wedding mishap

Elyse Myers tells a story of a wedding she worked where a bride allegedly requested edible serve ware.

If you haven't discovered Elyse Myers' TikTok channel yet, you're in for a treat.

You know a person has some kind of "X factor" when they manage to gather over 5 million followers without being a celebrity first and without taking off their clothes. Elyse Myers definitely has that X factor.

Sometimes she offers snippets of wise life advice, like this:

You aren’t a game. Tell them to move on. 🤍

Sometimes she shares what it's like to live with ADHD and social anxiety. Sometimes she dances or sings (she has a gorgeous, husky singing voice). Sometimes she's serious, sometimes she's silly, but where she really shines is in her storytelling.

Myers often shares interesting and/or funny stories from her life, many of which come from her time working as a cater waiter. It's hard to describe why, but the way she spins a tale is so engaging. It's not that she's particularly animated—in fact, her low-key verbal delivery is part of the appeal—but her combo of quick talking, illustrative hand gestures and perfectly timed pauses just works. And the cartoon overlays are just a little cherry on top.


All of her stories are great, but one recent saga she shared really takes the cake—or the quiche, as it were.

In response to the question, "What's one of the funniest things that's happened to you as a cater waiter?" Myers describes how she was working a wedding for a bride who requested that all of the service items—plates, bowls, cups, etc.—be edible. Odd request, Myers thought, but she went with it, informing the guests that they could eat their plate right along with their mini quiches. She even tried it herself.

As her caption says, "Turns out, it was as weird as I thought it was."

Just wait for the end:

Turns out, it was as weird as I thought it was. 🍮 #coffeetalk #ecofriendly

People were dying over the ending.

"The secondhand embarrassment I feel right now hurts, I am so sorry 😭😭😭" wrote one person.

"My steering wheel is covered in coffee. I was not ready. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣," wrote another.

"I CAN'T BREATHE 🤣 I AM WHEEZING SO HARD THAT MY CATS HAVE SCATTERED."

"I AM HOWLINGGGGG."

"Thank you, Elyse. I'm home with covid and I just snort splattered my screen with snot laughing at this." (Ew.)

Someone asked how many people ate the plates, and Myers responded, "At least 7." Can you even imagine?

Definitely go check out her other videos if you haven't already. But just for funsies, here's one more. The "proof" at the end is too much.

I left it to the professionals after that. #coffeetalk #theadhdway

Parents respond to video of Britney Spears.

Parenting is hard for just about everyone. You're completely responsible for a small human that doesn't come with an instruction manual, and it's a case of trying to do the best you can with what you've got. Some people seem to think that celebrities should be infallible, so when Kevin Federline shared a video of Britney Spears being stern with her children there was always going to be negative feedback. But surprisingly, the video has, in fact, stirred up more support for the star and her parenting methods.

A good boy going for a swim.

A dramatic video from Lopburi, Thailand, shows a dog running to the rescue of a puppy that’s having trouble keeping its head above water in a fish pond. According to NowThis News, a surveillance camera captured a white dog named Soh being rescued by a larger dog named Hand.

Soh definitely appears to be struggling and calling out when, out of nowhere, Hand rushes to the rescue and pulls the dog out of the fish pond. Hand clearly could hear that Soh was in danger because it ran to its aid with purpose.

Cats are far more badass than we give them credit for.

Cats have a reputation for being aloof and standoffish, like they're better than everyone and simply can't be bothered. Those of us who have cats know they're not always like that … but yes, they're sometimes like that. They can be sweet and affectionate, but they want affection on their terms, they want to eat and play and sleep on their own clock, and we puny, inferior humans have little say in the matter.

There's a reason why we have obedience schools for dogs and not for cats. Maine coon or Bengal, Savannah or Siamese, ragdoll or sphynx, domestic cats of all breeds are largely untrainable little punks who lure us into loving them by blessing us with the honor of stroking their fur and hearing them purr.

But perhaps we assume too much when we think cats are full of themselves for no good reason. Maybe they are actually somewhat justified in their snootiness. Maybe they really, truly are superior to pretty much every other creature on Earth and that's why they act like it.
