As proof, today we are offering a collection of repurposed pictures featuring recycled celebrities, reusing a traditional comedic device known as inappropriate photo captioning, the results of which have been reduced in scale from monumentally hilarious to merely silly.
The following gallery of celebrity buddy photos all hail from the era of Reagan, Frogger, and Gilbert Gottfried, and were borrowed without permission from The Huffington Post, which really wasn't doing anything with them anyway.
So, here you go, a little feature we're calling...Celebr80's
#1: Betty White and Charlie Sheen
|Charlie (to himself): Betty has no idea what she's in for tonight...|
Betty (to herself): The hell I don't.
|Leif: "So I said, 'Okay, Arnold, maybe your pecs are bigger than mine, but I'll bet my pecker is bigger than yours. |
And it was!!! Man, steroids are some crazy sh*t, aren't they?"
#3: Cyndi Lauper and Rodney Dangerfield
|Rodney: "This Lauper kid cracks me up. I mean, look at her!"|
|Susan: "My house burned down, I was robbed, my cat died, and now this..."|
|#5: Corey Haim and Alyssa Milano|
|Alyssa: "Oh my God! Take the picture, quick! This baseball |
player looks just like LUCAS!"
|Matt: "She's feeding me cake, and I'm still prettier."|
Brooke: "Oh my God, he is."
|Madonna (to herself): "Ten minutes now, and 'Crazy Dave' hasn't stopped talking about his f*ckin' dogs...."*|
#8: Goldie Hawn and Steven Speilberg
|Steven: "Finally...the roller derby free skate! Okay Goldie, this |
one's for all the trouble you caused me on 'The Sugarland Express.'"
#9: Corey Feldman and Heather Graham
|Heather (to herself): My only hope is that in 30 years people|
will think he's Michael Jackson.
#10: Sean Penn and Nicholas Cage
Nick (to himself): I order the pizza. I pay for the pizza. I drive across town to get the pizza...
|Steve: "Pay up, Jenner....I told you we'd be the stylin'-ist guys here..."|
Bruce: "Hey, who's that brunette?"
|#12: Tom Hanks and Shelley Long |
|Shelley: "Tom, you let Rita do that to your neck? That is one crazy hickey."|
#13: Robert Downey Junior, Anthony Michael Hall, David Lee Roth, and some chick with only two names (just kidding, it's Sonia Braga; and no, I can't explain it either)
|Robert Downey (to Anthony Michael Hall): "Dave's still talking about his f*cking dogs, isn't he?"*|
* Dave does like to talk about his dogs. A lot. In fact, at the last Van Halen concert here, 'Crazy Dave' stopped the show and talked about his dogs for at least ten minutes. I sh*t you not. You can read about it here.
