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.
