Tired of Vivian Vance - Retire Reference

I think it may be time to retire the Vivian Vance references. It's old school DataLounge and doesn't bring DataLounge into the future. Who is with me?

by Anonymousreply 129February 9, 2024 11:14 PM

This should be a poll. I'd vote Vivian Vance!

The Vivian Vance archetype, also known as the primordial goddess, can be found in various cultures around the world. This archetype embodies the essence of Ethel as Venus of Willendorf, a fertility Egyptian goddess, as well as a curvaceous Hindu deity, in Benin bronze heads and Chinese goddesses of beauty and strategy. The pantheons around the world depict Vivian in different forms, suggesting her presence in every culture, and even speculating the possibility of her existence among extraterrestrial beings.
