Just a few days ago, a newly wed couple from Poland had an argument shortly after cutting the cake at their wedding reception and left the party to seek an annulment. Could this be the shortest marriage on record? Perhaps. I suppose it will depend on how quickly an annulment is granted... if they even qualify for one. But at least this couple is in good company. Robin Givens
ended her marriage to Svetozar Marinkovic (who?) on the same day. Did he need a green card or something? Zsa Zsa Gabor's
marriage to Felipe De Alba was a twenty-four hour deal, ruled illegitmate because Zsa Zsa was still technically married to Michael O’Hara. This will teach you all to double-check that the ink on your divorce papers is actually dry. Britney Spears
taught us that you can get divorced in Las Vegas as quickly as you can get married, when she ended her fifty-five hour marriage to Jason Alexander. And who could forget Drew Barrymore's
short-lived marriage (28 days) to Jeremy Thomas? You can read about the Polish couple here.
Aren't you glad to see that the sacred institution of marriage is being taken so seriously?
Sculptor Joe Fafard
is inspired by cows to create art. How could he not
be at home on WU?
Sixteen year old Brooke Greenberg doesn't age. She doesn't grow, physically, or get sick, like everyone else. In fact, the only parts of Brooke that grow normally are her nails and her hair. She can't speak, but uses the sounds that a toddler might use to vocalize what she wants. She must also have a tube in her stomach in order to eat, since her esophagus hasn't developed to handle "grown up" foods. Her doctors are baffled but her family believes she is here to help us answer the questions of mortality. You can read more about Brooke here.
Late last year a new keyboard came out called the Keyboard For Blondes. It's a pink keyboard that had different names for the keys. Instead of Ctrl, Alt, Delete it has Smart Blonde Button, Somewhat Useless Key, Useless Key. For some reason the site (http://www.keyboardforblondes.com
) that made it isn't working right now so you can't buy it.
The site is now working. I don't know why it wasn't working before.
