As it turns out, combining two terms into something new and funny is something that my friends, who are hilarious, enjoy doing and have done so for quite some time.
Take my friend, Erica, for example. Also, read her blog, which she updates just as frequently as I update mine.
Back in 2004, she and a coworker started making a list celebrity names mixed with medical ailments and the like.
The list had not been updated since that fateful day UNTIL she was inspired by my 80s bakery post and decided it was time to revisit the list. I feel like we’ve created a modern day set of celebrity-based Garbage Pail Kids and I could not be more proud. Also, the bar for things I am proud of is set very, very low. I woke up today! Hooray!
