from Charlie Brown to Charlie Bit Me

By: Luisa Amanda Gomes - Published:
As Charlie Sheen makes headlines again for crashing his SUV (at least the headlines are non-abusive this time) we tend to cringe at the sound of his name. Yet, the name ‘Charlie’ is synonymous with other fond memories—and I say this wistfully. I have happy memories of the Charlie Brown Christmas and I still giggle like an idiot whenever I see the ‘Charlie Bit Me’ video on Youtube. Aside from the icons of pop culture, we have many Charlies that design, decorate and so much more. So this cluster is dedicated to all the Charlies that don’t make us recoil in disgust and still make us smile every now and again.
