Who'd a thunk it?
Who'd a thunk that an actress with her own share of tattoos, who went on TV many years ago to enthusiastically promote a godawful movie that she starred in that she must have known was godawful, "Two If By Sea", making her a complete whore, who later on in life marries a guy covered with tattoos, including those of the Swastika variety, and surprise, surprise, he gets caught cheating on her, who'd a thunk she'd be considered "America's Sweetheart"?
Who'd a thunk it?
Because she won an Oscar?
Lots o' women have won Oscars.
Hattie McDaniel won an Oscar.
I don't recall anyone calling her "America's Sweetheart".
And again, people are asking the wrong question: "Why on earth did he marry her?"
Yeah. Right. Nobody ever marries up.
And yes, Jesse James marrying Sandra Bullock IS marrying up.
It's a close call, but it's still marrying up.
And again, I don't hear anyone asking "Why on earth did she marry him"?
Two reasons: 1) She is the aforementioned tattooed whore herself. And......
2) To quote a Playboy Cartoon I remember from the 60's, where a young man brings his prospective bride home to meet his parents, and the "bride" is the ultimate floozy hooker, wearing a sandwich-board that reads, in big, bold letters: " $5!!!! Come and get it!!!!!",
the boy's father, seated on the couch next to the boy's mother, says, in the caption, quite understatedly, "You're blinded by love, son".
So "America's Sweetheart" was blinded by love.
It could happen to anybody.
You can still legitimately ask "What the hell was she thinking?"
But to feel sorry for her?
I'm a Jew.
She married someone with Swastika tattoos.
It wasn't "I'll marry you if you get rid of the Swastika tattoos."
She took him as he was.
And he turned out to be someone who cheated on her with someone with even more Swastika tattoos than he.
But at least he'll be "Cured" by going to rehab. Right.
I hear no apologies to my Tribe from her.
Forgive me, but my sympathies lie elsewhere.
They both deserve whatever they get.
Including each other.
This divorce is much more Funny Peculiar than Funny Ha Ha.
I'm just sayin'.

- Hi. I am, according to my Wikipedia entry,(which I did not create) a noted television writer, playwright, screenwriter, and occasional actor. You can Google me or go to the IMDB to get my credits, and you can come here to get my opinions on things, which I'll try to express eloquently. Hopefully I'll succeed. You can also e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Perhaps my biggest claim to fame is being responsible, for about six months in 1975, while Head Writer for the "Happy Days" TV series, for Americans saying to each other "Sit on it."
