Famous Pairs (or, Famous Pears)

Famous Pairs is a very funny, tongue-in-cheek book that uses pears to pun the famous real-life pairs. Yeah, you would not understand what it means from that sentence just now, but just one example would set it crystal clear. The picture below (showing a pair of pears) is:

Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky

Can you guess who are the following?



[Answer: Anna Nicole Smith & J Howard Marshall III; Michael Jackson, then and now]

There are a few more in their website – and if you really love it, do support them and buy the book – I think it’d make a perfect coffee-table book that is rather unique and humorous.

    Hi there,

    Yes, I’ve been rather slow to catch on to the whole blogging trend (where am I? What year is it again?), but I did just find your post of our book, and wanted to thank you. Jeannie and I had a lot of fun pulling it together. At the end of it, we had serious doubts about whether it was actually funny at all. Sounds like at least one other smart person out there shares our slightly bizarre sense of humor. Looking forward to catching up on your blog. Looks like you have some great topics.
