the oddest couple

March 11, 2016

Last week the two people I would’ve guessed least likely to marry got married.  The fetching Jerry Hall exchanged vows with the not-so-fetching Rupert Murdoch.  Let that sink in.








I know.  Preposterous, yes?  The 59-year-old Hall, who once shared an apartment with co-models Grace Jones and Jessica Lange.  Who broke up Mick Jagger’s marriage to Bianca and spawned four little rolling stones with him.  Rupert Murdoch, who turns 85 today, the midhusband of Fox News Channel and The Weekly Standard.  The asshat whose work on earth will be done if Trump is coronated next January.

So naturally I started thinking if there could be any odder couples on this particular planet.  So far I have a dozen possibilities:

1. Don Knotts and Leslie Jones

2. Kanye West and Shirley Temple

3. Jerry Falwell and Mae West

4. Doctor Phil and Doctor Ruth

5. Doctor Ruth and Wilt Chamberlain

6. Prince and Princess Leia

7. Queen Elizabeth and Freddy Mercury

8. Catherine the Great and Man o’ War

9. Dame Judi Dench and Gary Busey

10. Pope Frank and Madonna (the singer one)

11. Michelle Bachmann and Neil DeGrasse Tyson

12. Michelle Bachmann and Marcus Bachmann


Any other suggestions?

    I did think that it was an odd union but what ever floats their boat I suppose. I can’t think of any odd ones at the moment. All of the good ones have been taken!
