Jenny over at Allsorts posted a fun meme today.
Here's how to play. Just do a Google search of the phrase, "Unfortunately, ________ ", putting your first name in place of the blank. Be sure to enclose it all in quotation marks. The resulting phrases can be quite hilarious if, as Jenny says, you have a slightly twisted sense of humor and an appreciation for random absurdity.
Using "Dorothy" brought results like:
"Unfortunately Dorothy hasn't written very many novels, so I am left to reread the ones she has."
Not too funny. Some were even a little sad, like this one:
"Unfortunately, Dorothy’s early onset of Alzheimer’s disease took away the chance for her grandchildren to know what a special grandmother they had."
But, I did like the *one* result of "Lady Dorothy".
"Quite unfortunately Lady Dorothy was talking to the Blacksmith and overheard the whole conversation and sentenced them both to Table Clearing duty for three years."
Go ahead, try it! If you decide to play along, leave your favorite result in a comment and a link back to your blog, if you like.
