So, much as I may complain from time to time about how my dad and I don't always agree on our pop culture tastes, I have to thank him for introducing me to most of the landmark pop culture of my youth.
This one has always resonated with me because Ted is so damn relatable. He's the geeky nice guy who dreams of getting with the beautiful, smart, fun girl who's way out of his league who winds up getting with her just because he's so damn decent. What can I say, back in high school I dreamed of one day finding my own Mary. Though I didn't find her in high school, I did wind up finding her and have been all the happier for it. Especially since I didn't need some zipper trauma to get there.
So, dear readers, are there any other There's Something About Mary fans out there? Do you think she should have gone with one of her other suitors/stalkers? Are there any other unconventional fictional couples you find romantic? Sound off in the comments below!
And as always, please drop me a line on Facebook or Twitter! I'm big into liking/following back!
