Creative wedding toasts

I have searched the archives and have a pretty good handle of what it takes to make a good standard wedding toast. But what about a creative wedding toast?

Younger Sister is getting married to a man I love and Older Sister and I will be doing a joint toast. Older Sister was married a year ago and Younger Sister and I also did a joint toast. Younger Sister put together an amazing annotated video slideshow of how the bride and groom met, which I followed up with the gushy closing remarks. It went over very well.
Now we are returning the gesture and I know Younger Sister would really like it if we did something similarly creative. However the grooms brother is a videographer and will be doing a video toast. So that's out, plus I don't want to do exactly what we did for Older Sister anyway.
Currently the vague idea I have is to include some quotes from the Google chats she used to write me when she was crushing on her now fiancé. They are funny in retrospect and not particularly private. Any ideas on how to make this creative? Print some choice quotes on poster board? Ideas appreciated! Anecdotes about your own non-standard toast welcome as well!
