The List: Misguided acts of love in history, legend, literature and pop culture

Misguided acts of love in history, legend, literature and pop culture:

1 Abducting Helen, which led to the invasion of Troy. Helen was likely ravishingly beautiful, but still.


2 Buying Kim Kardashian a ring.


3 Letting an asp bite you. Think, Cleopatra, think!


4 Releasing “Paula.” That was thick, Robin Thicke.


5 Marrying your mom. Yuck, Oedipus.


6 Letting Daisy Buchanan drive.


7 Drinking poison. Romeo, why didn’t you let yourself cry a little longer?


8 Impulse weddings in Las Vegas, a la Britney Spears.


9 Proposing to the governess while your wife is upstairs. Yes, the wife is psycho, but that’s still not classy, Mr. Rochester.


10 Wearing a vial of Billy Bob Thornton’s blood.


11 Beheading Anne Boleyn to marry Jane Seymour.


12 Giving James Bond a golden bullet. See: “The Man With The Golden Gun”


13 Getting “Winona Forever” tattooed to your upper arm. “Wino Forever” isn’t much better, Johnny Depp.


14 Jumping on a couch on Oprah’s show. Tom Cruise, you’re nuts.
