(See "Comments")
Keep them coming . . . 



  1. Hahahaha! Brilliant! Kate and George!!
    I'll have to come back later with some suggestions...maybe. Gad, I was hoping to do something more productive with my evening.

  2. Benny and Faith Hill? Dylan and Kirsten Scott Thomas? Rowan and Gemma Atkinson? Rowan and Vanessa Williams?

  3. Ha ha! Great idea. Top of my head - Dorothy and Peter Parker (aka Spiderman), Sarah and Michael Palin, Dorothy and the Dalai Lamarr (ahem)

  4. Lionel Tony Blair
    JF Charles Kennedy
    George Gordon Brown (George = Chancellor in Harold Wilson's Government).

  5. As odd a selection of pairings as you could want methinks. I think you should do regular updates on this as there must be, as you suggest, limitless options.

    What about Barbara and Elizabeth Windsor?
    Barry and John Humphreys?

  6. They're getting better and better. Michael and Glenda got a big guffaw.
    (Nice positioning of Rowan Atkinson's gaze, btw.)

  7. Some people have a name dropping complex...

  8. Poor Gemma Atkinson will never make the swimming team...would sink like a stone.
    I hope men are being kind to her and not focussing on her deformity!

  9. rallentanda, I think men can't be kind. Not in that department. Why, look at Rowan, and he's not even in the same ROOM with her!

  10. Hmmmm . . . anything else Gemma Atkinson and Sarah Palin have in common? And is it unkind to enquire "Are those superstructures REAL?"

  11. I think you are having too much fun. By the way, I think this photo of Sarah Barracuda was made up – and up.

  12. Yep Sarah Palin has been photo ballooned.
    You can only have those porn star appendages and be a politician in Italy where you are guaranteed to win the entire male vote in the country.

  13. Vagabonde . . . how can one have too much fun?!!

    I'm looking for an "Armstrong" to go with "Lance." Any ideas?

  14. Somebody needs to tell Gemma Atkinson that she has one hung low.Did you hear about the lady who's bra strap broke? They call her Onehunglo. I think she was of oriental origin. BTW I will look for "The Nuns"

  15. Unless my eyes deceive me, your photo of Jackie Kennedy is of a wax Jackie Kennedy. At Madame Tussaud's, perhaps? And although her pink suit and hat might be called "iconic" this American thinks it was in rather poor taste for Mme. Tussaud to portray her in that particular outfit.

    Rowan Atkinson's vision is 20/20 and probably rising!

  16. rhymeswithplague . . . wax or cosmetic surgery?


Thank you for stopping by. To make life easier for you I have turned off the new indecipherable and time-wasting verification words. Would you care to "feedback" to Blogger and complain about them, like I did?
