It was shocking last week to learn that after 40 years, former Vice President Al Gore and his wife Tipper were finally calling it quits. It just goes to show, you never know what people are going through.
For the uninformed, since leaving office, Al has become the Poster Boy for Global Warming and back in the 80’s when Al was just a senator, his wife Tipper headed up the Parent’s Music Resource Center (PMRC). Ultimately, their fight led to warning stickers on records and a Capitol Hill showdown with rockers including Dee Snyder of Twisted Sister.
Indeed, you never know what goes on behind the screens of a marriage!
Sure don’t. Good to see you. Thanks for stopping by.
its not nice to hear of marriage breakups… its very depressing. I keep wanting to believe that good marriages still exist..but the world makes it so hard to have faith in it.
Mine is one Susi..that’s all that matters.
Mine too! It takes a lot of hard work but it is worth it.
i third that comment. keeping in mind, it takes a lot of great sex to make a good marriage last, but if he play one more black sabbath song i swear i’ll kill him!
What if he plays Black Sabbath during Sex??
You can’t hold that against the man! Wait, the Dio years, or Ozzy?
Al Gore truly is a smart man. He waited to do a divorce AFTER his kids were grown, the house and car were paid off and the wife had a fat bank account, meaning NO ALIMONY, UPKEEP OR CHILD SUPPORT, SUCKAHZ!
I thought it was cause she heard him singing old N.W.A songs
I think it was in ‘Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey’ where I saw Dee Snider reminiscing about his testimony in front of the PMRC. Funny stuff!
Too bad about the split though. 40 years? Wow.
So you and I both watch VH1 Classic
That Twisted Sister video featured the ROTC guy from Animal House yelling at his “son” in the video. “Is that a Twisted Sister pin on your uniform?!” Then the kid spins around and becomes Dee Synder and basically kicks the father’s ass for the rest of the video.
That actor has quit playing those roles anymore… cant’ figure why. 🙂
Yes, too bad about Al and Tipper, but you never know how folks are in “real life” and they did go through a lot. Politics is not an easy career… even for “good guys” like Al Gore.
He was in the other Twisted Sister video and Stephen Furst (also from Animal House) ends up the principal squirting seltzer on him.
Tipper’s not gonna’ take it—NO, she ain’t gonna take it…
He probably kept leaving the toilet seat up too. That sets any woman off
Not as much as leaving it down and peeing.
40 yrs, Huh ?
well no-one can accuse them of not giving it a fair go
Hopefully, they can remain friends and support one another even if they can no longer live together as man and wife
True true. Sadder to see when people get a divorce and can’t stand each other.
I hate my ex… nothing complicated…
You just got lucky the second time around.
amen brother, say it again!
Did she know about his secret affair? Someone must have tipped her off!
Yuk yuk yuk!
That was so bad I don’t have a response..hahah
Damn, more inconvenient truths!!!
Psst I bet he leaves the toilet seat up and uses the full flush button!!!!
pssst. We don’t have half flush buttons on our toilets
That is even funnier 🙂 Another inconvenient truth!!!
haha… inconvenient truths… you’re evil FL
Thanks NM, I try 🙂
is a full flsuh more effective than a semiflush? i’m confused..
In some places they have toilets that have two flushers. One for pee and one for poop. Don’t need as much water to push the pee down the pipe.
Man, you figure if you could make it thru forty years, you could go another forty. There must be a lot of irreconcilable matters going on in their marriage.
80 years is my goal. I have a long way to go.
i thought you were already 80… damn. 🙁
I still say that any middle aged couple that has to flaunt PDA’s that hardcore is trying to fool people… maybe even themselves. It’s just not natural at that age.
I’ll be one of those couples when I am there. My wife can’t keep her hands off me.
Hmm, from around your neck I am guessing 🙂
You are a lucky guy then!
But would she really plunge her tongue down your throat on stage in front of thousands…. especially when the event didn’t call for it?
If so…. You are a lucky guy then! hahaha
Find me a venue to be in front of thousands and we’ll see. hahaa
I had a hunch something was amiss after witnessing that awkward 2000 DNC make-out session. It still gives me nightmares.
You dream weird.
No wonder I have such a difficult time falling asleep! 🙂
Frankly, I’m very surprised that your readers here actually remember the PMRC from the early 80’s. I remember all of the pointless media coverage about this.
Turned out to be much ado about nothing and ultimately, it backfired.
Lets face it, people will buy stuff, no matter how good or how bad it is, if it has a warning label on it.
I have no problem ultimately with the warning label. But these days it means nothing with kids downloading everything.
FYI, “Twisted Sister” used to be my safe word.
What is it now? “Michael Buble”??
Despite warnings of higher temps, apparently there is not enough heat in the Gore house.
Good one FJ.
There might not be any truth in this rumor but I heard that Al had been hugging more than trees.
Really? Do tell.
Yeah, give us all the Gore 🙂
HA! My response would be, “Why can’t you turn out the lights when you ENTER a room?” Let it sink in.
I got it..haah
You know, you’re always dogging your caricatures of celebrities, but i think you nailed Gore! (Al, that is!)
Usually I can do an entire cartoon start to finish in an hour. This one took me 4 hours b/c of stupid Al not looking right
I was stunned and shocked when I found out.
I mean, he invented marriage.
Oh, wait, did someone already use that joke?
So sad about this…wish they could work it out. I have a problem how you want to solve the world’s issues if you can’t solve small problems at home.
You can never tell, can you?
I hate when the womenfolk leave the light on too…
al gore. no one should have to stay married to a nutcase.
or someone named tipper.
i’m happy for both of them.
