Wanda, on the left, and Sheldon, on the right have been married for fourteen years. Does the name Sheldon ring a bell with you at all? (You may be too young for this.) I shall refresh the memory of those who can’t quite place it: It is a name cruelly mocked by Billy Crystal as Harry, in When Harry Met Sally.
A Sheldon can do your income taxes. If you need a root canal, Sheldon’s your man… but humpin’ and pumpin’ is not Sheldon’s strong suit. It’s the name. ‘Do it to me Sheldon, you’re an animal Sheldon, ride me big Shel-don.’ Doesn’t work.
It’s not very flattering, and I do apologize for anyone named Sheldon who might be reading this. The blue sheep above, this Sheldon, he is not too thrilled about it, either. In fact, Wanda and Sheldon almost broke up over this movie for this reason. Wanda had picked the film, you see. She had forgotten about the whole Sheldon thing, having only seen it once (and probably intoxicated at the time, if you must know).
Progress pics, which I have lined up side by side though Sheldon was completed first, and Wanda afterwards.
I don’t think they quite lived up to the promise of their respective sketches. I definitely lost most of the fluffy quality.
In case you wondered, Sheldon is totally over the whole Harry Met Sally thing. He still won’t watch it, however.
