Were there ever any hotter dueling divas than Daphne and Josephine of "Some Like it Hot"? These two fillies were in competition from the word "go." It's a close race, so lets examine their record and form before placing our bets.
Daphne: slightly bowed, ankles weak
Josephine: good muscle tone, good shape
Best Musical Pedigree
Daphne: Claimed to have spent three years at the Sheboygan Conservatory of Music. Bull fiddle has bullet holes in it, which rarely happens at a conservatory of any type. However, she plays a mean bull fiddle.
Josephine: also claimed to have gone to the Sheboygan Conservatory of Music. However, her sax is intact, so she appears to have had the most genteel past. Josephine and her sax can really cook
Winner: it's close, but this category goes to Josephine
Best Early Speed
Daphne: jumps out to an early lead and eyes Marilyn Monroe for the finish line.
Josephine: very slow coming out of the gate.
Strongest in the Two-Way Stretch
Both "ladies" appear to handle the foundation garment issue with equal aplomb.
This round is a tie.
Daphne: While Daphne may be a grand girl, it appears her fashion sense is of the Stella Dallas variety.
Josephine: Quite chic, especially the very fashionable cloche hat.
Josephine: the brunette is rather harsh and not at all complimentary to her rather milky complexion.
Daphne: Blonde is a good choice for her. Plus, the color is not too brassy, so it looks quite natural and refined. Nice finger waves are a plus.
Most Fun at Parties
Daphne: This girl knows how to party and throw caution to the wind.
Josephine: Rather cautious and skittish, more of a wall flower.
Least Conflicted About Her Gender
Daphne: Wholeheartedly embracing her feminine side.
Josephine: I sense some resistance here.
Best at Collecting All the Marbles
Daphne: blows it big time.
Josephine: brings home the bacon
Looks Like a Dead Heat!
It's a close contest all the way and there is no predicting whose nose will cross that finish line first. But, no matter which of these divas you prefer, it's a sure thing that each is a winner and that, when they are together, we are the real winners!
This is my entry in the Dueling Divas Blogothon, hosted by Backlots. Click here for the full list and wonderful posts about all of those dueling cinematic divas! Happy reading and watch out for those claws!
This was a beautiful read, FlickChick. Trust you to come out with an entry this funny, clever, and original.
Who has the Best Brush-offs, though?
"Well, pull in your reel, Mr. Fielding, you're barking up the wrong fish!"
(in response to Osgood's "Do you use a bow or just pluck it?") "Most of the time I slap it."
"Aren't you a little too young for that, sonny?"
Yeah, I think I have to give the edge to Daphne. Love 'em both, though.
I really got a chuckle from your "Dueling Diva's" post. Josephine, has my vote.:)
Although, Daphne was the one to become engaged to a millionaire.
OH. MY. GOD. This was amazing. I love Josephine and Daphne so much. I would probably give the edge to Daphne, simply because she's so zany and neurotic, but Josephine gives her a run for her money with her marvelous use of lipstick. Thanks for this marvelous post!
That was so funny and I just loved it. You are the best.
This is very funny and very clever!
You've made my day.
Rachel - Daphne was definitely the most fun - though together they are terrific.
Hi Dawn - Daphne had all the cards and blew them - "she" could have had Osgood! I doubt he would have noticed!
Lara - thank you for hosting a great blogathon!
Thank you, Diane. I just couldn't resist them!
Thank you, Paul - it always makes my day to make someone else's day!
Cute post.I think 'Jack' was the best Diva' Tony Curtis was funny,but you could see he was holding on to "manhood". 'Lemmon" was funny in how he embraced this role.. worried about his makeup,and..etc. Liked this movis alot. Still unlike the majority...just don't like tha ending!
Oh, I totally agree that Jack?Daphne embraced her feminine side! As for the ending - what can I say? Nobody's perfect!
I can't argue with your clever logic, FlickChick.
Even if we take the two girl-guys a few years into the future, Daphne/Jerry with Osgood and Josephine/Joe with Sugar - I tend to think it would still be a dead heat.
Great post, as ever...
Thanks, Lady Eve. Actually, if we take this a few years into the future, Daphne might me a rich widow!
I have to leave a short comment right, not my usual style, but I laughed through the whole thing. Favorite picture and caption: Daphne and Josephine strutting their stuff looking good with foundation garments." Good one!
Thanks, Becky - we should only look so good, right?
:LOL, I love this post and I love Some Like it Hot. I think if I had to choose I'd pick Daphne :)
LOL, that was awesome, sooo creative! Congrats :)
Kendra - I agree - Daphne is certainly more fun and one of the girls!
Clara - thank you so much. There are sure a fun pair of divas!
