I try to stay away from the celebrity gossip angle of music, but you guys, the news that perpetually "punk" tween Avril Lavigne is going to get married to fellow Canadian and Nickelback lead singer Chad Kroeger is too good to resist, particularly since every person in my Twitter feed felt like they had to weigh in on it immediately after it broke. Canada jokes! Nickelback defenses! Debates over whether calling the pairing "Chavril" makes them sound like a fancy herb! Musings about the reaction by Avril's ex-husband, Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley! It made waiting in the bathroom line at Jones Beach Theater during last night's Kelly Clarkson/The Fray show a lot more entertaining, that's for sure. For your workday enjoyment, here are some of the most chuckle-groan-worthy jokes I came across; feel free to add your own.
