What's the story with those celebrity combination names, like Brangelina? Were they inspired by those horrid "I don't know where I end and you begin" Calvin Klein perfume ads, or what? Because those commercials always made me think of conjoined twins, which isn't the image I'm going for when scent shopping.
So, I've been obsessing over names like Brangelina (and please tell me that I'm not the only one who calls them Brangina) and Vaughnistan and thinking how unfair it is that the romances of the past have totally missed out on this kind of bonding. To remedy this wrong and to celebrate Valentine's Day, whine style, I present my Coupling Through History and invite you to submit your own!
Cleopatra & Ceasar = Cleasar
Liz Taylor & Richard Burton =Lick
Lunt & Fontanne = Luntanne
Katharine Hepburn & Spencer Tracey= Spenrine
Lauren Bacall & Humphrey Bogart= Bogall
Lucy & Desi = Lesi
Pocohantas & Captain John Smith=Pocosmith
Victoria & Albert = Vicbert
Eva & Adolf = Adolva
Eva & Juan= Juaneva
Janet & Tony=Tonnet
We are kicking off Valentine's Day Season with a whine. Because if you're like most people, you can't stand it. If you are not partnered, you hate the term "partnered" and the holiday is nausea-inducing. If you are in a relationship, you're in a no-win situation. Either fork over absurd amounts of money for flowers/chocolate/dinner or fall for that "I don't care if we observe Valentine's Day" crap and watch what happens.
So, please go ahead and submit your Valentine's Day whines by emailing them to: SecretSpineless.Whine@blogger.com (this will post to the blog automatically and anonymously, unless you sign your name/link to your blog). Of course, because we are equal opportunity whiners, you can still email your non-VD whines to the same address, but we'll put up the Valentine's Day ones in a pretty red color. And who, those "better dead than red" slogans notwithstanding, doesn't like red?! (And don't forget to join us next week for those fun "Reading posts in red ruined my eyesight" whines).
