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.
