Captain & Tennille Divorcing: 6 Important Questions We Have Now


captain and tennilleWhat is this world coming to? Have you heard the devastating celeb couple news? Legendary pop duo Captain and Tennille are divorcing after 39 years together! Toni (Tennille) filed for divorce in Arizona, claiming the marriage was "irretrievably broken." Daryl Dragon (Captain, because apparently Dragon isn't dashing enough a stage name) says he was blindsided. "I don't know why she filed. I gotta figure it out for myself first," he told TMZ.

The couple's blog post states, "The Captain & Tennille appeared to the public as them being the ideal model for a 'rock-solid' married pair. But almost all people naturally evolve over time & sometimes hidden feelings start to be uncovered ..." And that's how you frame a divorce after a couple gin and tonics. Anyway, it will come as no surprise that I had a number of different feelings about this startling news.

Captain and Tennille are still alive? Sorry, it's what we're all thinking. I can barely remember the duo from when I was a youngster, which was approximately during the Paleocene Era.


Captain and Tennille were married? I'd always assumed they were just a professional duo and that Captain was gay on account of the costume. You know, like he was a minor Elton John or something. Men singing in costumes when it's not Halloween = GAY. Come on, didn't you think the same thing?


You mean Love Won't Keep Us Together after all?!?


If Love Won't Keep Us Together, what will?


What is love, anyway? Does anybody love anybody else?


Does anybody remember Howard Jones? Whatever happened to him?

no idea

Honestly, I don't know what I'm going to do with the rest of my day.

Do you remember who Captain and Tennille are?

NoWei---that level of stupidity seems to be a badge of honor among many of the Stir's bloggers.  Between bait and switch headlines, to completely erroneous blogs, absolutely no fact checking, stupidity seems to be a source of pride.  Don't forget this is the site that allowed Kate Gosselin to post the most inane and utterly stupid things I've ever seen displayed.

Adriana, you assignment is to watch YouTube videos of Captain & Tennille and realize that just because you don't remember them doesn't mean they are insignificant. Okay, dear?
