Public Speaking : HUMOR TECHNIQUE - Toasts

Toasting is not nearly as common as it once was. However, the polished presenter should have a few short toasts ready to go if and when the occasion arises. Here are a few fun toasts and a few touching ones too:


=> To your birthday, glass held high. Glad it's you that's older not I.

=> Heres to you. No matter how old you are, you don't look it.


=> Twas the month after Christmas, and Santa had flit; Came there
tidings in the mail, which read: Please remit.

=> Here's to the Holly with its bright red berry. Here's to Christmas, let's make it merry.


=> Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow you diet.

=> A full belly, a heavy purse, and a light heart.


=> Here's to a friend who knows me well and likes me anyway.

=> May the friends of our youth be the companions of our old age.

Banquet speech ending:

=> Good day, good health, good cheer, good night!


=> Here's to your health. You make age curious, time furious, and all of us envious.


=> As you slide down the banister of life, may the splinters never face the wrong way.

=> May your luck be like the capital of Ireland. Always Dublin.

New Year:

=> May all our troubles in the coming year be as short as our New Year's resolutions.

=> In the year ahead may we treat our friends with kindness and our enemies with generosity.


=> Marriage is an institution, but who wants to live in an institution. --Groucho Marx

=> May for "better or worse" be far better than worse.

To close this section I would like to tell you that I feel like aloaf of bread. Wherever I go, they toast me.
