King of Swamp Castle: Did you kill all those guards?
Sir Lancelot: Um... oh, yes! Sorry.
King: They cost fifty pounds each!
Sir Lancelot: Well, the thing is, I thought your son was a lady.
King: Well, I can understand that. ... You only killed the bride's father, you know.
Sir Lancelot: Well, I didn't mean to.
King: Didn't mean to? You put your sword right through his head.
Sir Lancelot: Oh dear. Is he all right?
King: [to the wedding guests] This is Sir Lancelot from the Court of Camelot! He is a very brave and influential knight and my special guest today.
Wedding Guest: He's killed my auntie!
King: No, please! This is supposed to be a happy occasion! Let's not bicker and argue over who killed who.
—Monty Python and The Holy Grail
In a modern update to one of my favorite Holy Grail scenes (and source of two of my favorite quotes* from the movie), a Turkish man reportedly killed several guests at his wedding when he shot off an AK-47 rifle as a method of celebration. I guess the Chicken Dance just doesn't cut it with youngsters these days:
Shake it, Justine!
Just for good measure, some chicken dancing from the hilarious and underappreciated Arrested Development:

* "Let's not bicker and argue about who killed who."—This one is useful anytime a tense argument at the poker tables needs defusing.
"Huuugge tracts of land."—Useful for discretely (or not so discretely) signalling to my standard-issue male buddies the notable assets of various persons of interest.
