"Happy Birthday, Mister President..."

Let's see, today is the 47th anniversary of "Happy Birthday, Mister President," a historical footnote later mentioned in a Daria fanfic. Wait....

Okay, this is weird. Using Google, I went through all the stories on Outpost Daria that mention Marilyn Monroe in them, and every single one of them is weird. We're not talking odd, we're talking major league Out There. Well, except for the stories I did, which were pretty mundane compared to the others. Have a look.
You tell me if there's something odd here. Which of these qualifies as crackfic? I think the first one does, for sure. Wow, awesome stuff. Remember this, fans: Do NOT use Marilyn Monroe in your fanfics unless you are going for the Weirdness Award. 'Nuff said.

I keep thinking I've seen fan art of a Daria character dressed up as Marilyn Monroe (not Manson), but I can't find any. Huh.

No comments on Marilyn Monroe and weirdness?

Well, I did poke around to see if I could find any screen shots of "Life in the Past Lane" in case one of Jane's dresses/hairstyles was similar to Marilyn Monroe, but came up empty.

Does that help?

Oh, yeah, I remember that.
