Who Is This Poor Woman and Why Won't You Leave Her Alone??!!

I see these people way more often than I see my own family. Or friends. Or actual classmates. In fact, I feel like I know them. And I’ll just go ahead and say, I feel bad for her. Honestly. I mean, she has to deal with having that scary-phase freshman-year photo plastered everywhere along with the not-so-veiled insult. And, really, what’s so great about him? He doesn’t look like the most amazing life partner ever. Because I’m pretty positive he’s not all that sensitive, ambitious, or helpful raising all those seven kids. In fact, I’m quite sure she’s the glue, keeping it all together, pulling the weight for the whole family of nine…while he’s running around in his Z28, drinking Miller High Life, listening to Sammy Hagar or something. So, yes, she married him. And I, for one, think he needs to just thank his lucky stars everyday that she doesn’t dump him and run off with that french-horn-playing math-genius she used to date in high school. But that’s just me.

    I think you have it wrong – the emphasis is supposed to be on the HIM, as in "she married HIM?" Someone so obviously able to get whomever she chooses . . . and she chose . . . HIM? That's how I read it. Also, I think they're happy. I mean, how could you have 7 kids and not be happy? Totally blissfully happy all the time.

  2. Bea says:

    This post is so, so funny. And Eric? You're funny too.

  3. laurie says:

    you are so awesome. just so awesome.

  4. mark says:

    Are you insinuating that sensitive, ambitious and helpful guys don't drink Miller High Life? It's the Champagne of Beers, you know. I drink Miller High Life. Sometimes.

  5. jen says:

    I was thinking more along the lines of a muscle shirting hooters attending peter frampton type.but maybe that's just me.

  6. Rhonda says:

    Yeah! And he probably has a receding hair line, a big ole beer gut and recently got a promotion to the mail room. Loser.

  7. Stephanie says:

    Rhonda, I totally was thinking the same thing!*sigh*Comment-confounded yet again at Casa Con Queso!

    I'm with you…I hate those ads almost as much as I hate the ones for the mortgage rates that have people silhouttes dancing on the roof…YUCK!

  9. Lauren McMahon says:

    Ugh, thank you for bringing this up. I see that ad at least once a day and it's like, "Yes, she married him, and yes, they have seven kids. How is there someone that still doesn't know that?!"

  10. Super Zoe says:

    GcQ, you know how I feel about that picture of me! It's bad enough that the whole Internet sees it, but now you have to put it on your blog?! I am so disappointed in you. Did you want the one of me as a baby naked in the bathtub, too?!

  11. Anonymous says:

    You are so funny!

  12. kim says:

    Let me try this again—You are so funny!!!

  13. Bones says:

    I hate those two. they send me no less than 20 emails a week.

  14. -R- says:

    Hilarious. But maybe it is just shocking that anyone would marry someone they knew in high school? That sounds like I am against marrying your high school sweetheart, but I am not. It just surprises me every time. And then I say, "SHE married HIM?" Ok, not really.

  15. Tere says:

    LOL I've often wondered about them, too!

  16. HB says:

    Too funny! I like and tend to agree with your analysis.

  17. Jenny says:

    She's too good for him. She needs a good divorce lawyer. And an IUD.

  18. Super Zoe says:

    I think everyone is so stunned they got married because she obviously graduated with Marcia Brady in 1974 and he graduated with Mike Seaver in 1987. The Harold and Maude Society is so proud!!

  19. Robyn says:

    Zoe, that's what I thought, too.Or maybe she found a picture of him with the football coach en flagrante and blackmailed him into marriage.

  20. Girl con Queso says:

    Mark, you're right, Miller High Life is the new Pabst Blue Ribbon.Jenny, an IUD is obviously needed here. These crazy kids are rabbits.And SZ and Robyn, that's exactly another thing I was thinking. And now that I think about it more, I think she was that crazy student teacher we tortured our senior year.

  21. mamatulip says:

    Sammy Hagar? Miller High Life? Seven kids?*snort*

  22. Jaelithe says:

    All right, I confess. That photo was me.(What? I went to high school in the nineties and therefore could not have possibly ever owned glasses that hideous? Au contraire).

  23. Janet says:

    LOL! I wondered about that girl, how she feels about having her photo plastered all over like that.

  24. Jennifer says:

    Next will be the singles ads:SHE left HIM — and now they both want to date YOU!

  25. shoppergirl says:

    They need new poster children at that site! I get sick of seeing those pics. Funny! :)

  28. Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.
