I’ve been compiling a list of famous historical bachelors for a while for no reason. Maybe for future blog posts or so I can worm them annoyingly into awkward conversations. Maybe I’ll write a cleverly titled book, BACHELOR Profiles In Courage (And Shame), and sneak copies into the Kennedy sections of bookstores and libraries. I’ve already written about some of the dudes in previous blog posts, if only to help single guys realize how successful they can be with fewer distractions. Death or some sort of finality is needed to gauge one’s determination at bachelorhood, so I haven’t really included too many modern celebs. I might throw in living guys like Billy Idol just to mix things up (I’m pretty sure he’s still alive. And single.). If you find some other good examples, let me know by leaving insane rambling comments.
Guys I’ve Already Written About (linked for your pleasure)
Vincent Van Gogh
King Ludwig II (Mad King Ludwig)
President James Buchanan (The Bachelor President)
Sherlock Holmes (yeah, he’s fictional)
Ludwig van Beethoven
Philosophers & Theorists & Writers
Henry David Thoreau
Other Random Single Dudes
Edward Heath (former British PM)
As I study up on some of these goats and discover a few were actually married (or perhaps really women), thus shortening the list, I may be required to add modern bachelors in hopes that they stay lonely (I mean single) for the rest of their lives. In that event, here are some guys still living (except for a dead one).
Drew Carey (apparently engaged)
Anthony Michael Hall
Andre the Giant (yeah, he’s dead)
The secret fake word is spaz.

Yes, it’s a PR campaign by milk, but it’s way groovy! You know you’ve been itchin’ to check it out. It’s a futuristic 70s-style camp rock opera trippin’ as a 15 minute movie. Think Logan’s Run meets blacksploitation (with mostly whities) meets campy music by way of The Rocky Horror Picture Show for a groovaliciously weird milk campaign. It’s like Austin Powers dipped in the milkpool for extra mojo, baby! We’ll even latch onto the whole bachelor theme to make it relevant to thedomesticatedbachelor.com (ah, relevance). I present Battle For Milkquarious , featuring “the luxurious love den of the most milktasticalist rock star in the Super-Universe, White Gold.”
(Don’t you think the main dude looks like the love child of Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters and another member of the band?)
