Nothing stokes the fires of romance like watching the “The Notebook” with your brother in a tractor trailer parked outside a church. That’s how a brother and sister in Gutyon, Georgia, found themselves arrested for incest, aggravated sodomy and prowling early Tuesday morning. Police found the siblings walking around outside a Baptist church and somehow determined they “had just had sex” by their behavior, according to Atlanta’s local CBS News. The siblings admitted to swapping DNA three times while watching “The Notebook.” I have officially lost my appetite for lunch and dinner. Good job, Ryan Gosling?

“The Notebook” may be a favorite this time of year, but after 10 years (yes, 10!), it’s due for an upgrade. Like, say, kittens recreating its greatest moments. Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams may be easy on the eyes, but I guarantee that this feline version of the film will leave you much happier than the end of the original movie. Meow! [Laughing Squid]
Sure, we don’t turn down our friend when she suggests going to see the latest Nicholas Sparks film adaptation. (Um, hello, major eye candy!) But as we’re downing our Sour Patch Kids and Diet Coke, we’re also rolling our eyes and contemplating giving the movie the middle finger.
It’s like we’ve seen the same movie 10 times over! Passionate kiss in the rain? Ick. Romantic boat rides? Ugh. Fate stepping in? Vomit.
You think you know everything about love, Sparks? We’re here to tell you that you don’t—and we’ve had to learn that from real-life experience and heartache.
We’re done playing your fool. Just look at all these lies you’ve told us over the years! Read more on Your Tango…
“As the film credits started to roll, I couldn’t move. I burst into tears. People walking past me patted me on the back, trying to console me. ‘The Notebook’ was beautiful, and I was crying because its hero and heroine had died together. But I was also crying because … my marriage had died. And there was nothing I could do to bring it back.”

Well, this is the most tragically romantic story you’ll certainly read all week. Last week, Gordon Yeager, 94, and his wife Norma, 90 — who lived together for 72 years – were involved in a car accident and died one hour apart, holding hands in adjoining hospital beds.
“They always did everything together,” their daughter said. “They weren’t apart. They just weren’t.”
Following the car crash, Gordon passed away first, but his heart monitor continued to register a beat. “It was really strange,” said their son. “They were holding hands, and dad stopped breathing but I couldn’t figure out what was going on because the heart monitor was still going. But we were like, he isn’t breathing. How does he still have a heart beat? The nurse checked and said that’s because they were holding hands and it’s going through them. Her heart was beating through him and picking it up.” Norma died an hour later. [ABC News]
