Not a week after Wills and Kate got married, an American royal family crumbled. We know that nature finds a way to equilibrium. It might be crocodiles eating pretty birds while merkats sing something about the circle of life, or it might be that when one royal couple gets together, another separates.
Really. It’s straight out of a biology book; the one you didn’t read in high school. (You know you didn't.)
Still, just like when feathers fly in a PBS show and you feel bad, you felt bad at the news that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are splitting. There is such a thing as denying nature if it took 25 years for a pretty woman from the most famous liberal families on the face of the earth and a really creepy-looking conservative bodybuilder to break up. Can’t deny nature forever, I guess, but now there’s proof that you can for a while.
Still, with so much sadness in the world, you know Arnold and Maria are feeling their share.
So, to bring some cheer to the soon-to-be-not-a-couple, I have some good news. It is news of something that won’t bring them closer to each other again, but might give them a way to remember more of the good times.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are now officially on the “face that belongs on a ventriloquist dummy” list. Both of them.
Like so many on the "V-Face" list, the only surprise is that it took this long. Maybe it took too long. Maybe it could have been something more important to them in better times; something to get them through the winter.
The reason there’s two pictures is that when the dummy makers go to the lab, I think the younger Arnold and the older Maria are their ventrilo-iconic * images.
Nobody else ever says this, but you know the thing about how when a couple is together for a while, they start looking alike?
* Ventrilo-iconicis another word I have now made up. It means the pictorial representation of the art of ventriloquism. I really should go though all my posts and find all the "vent speak" words I've tried to popularize.
