When Linus Met Sally and Other Famous Fictional Couples

You have to be pretty hard-hearted to not get a least a little lump in your thought when you think of some of fictional couples. But have you ever stopped to think just how these crazy lovebirds ever got together? The answers may surprise you.

Linus Van Pelt and Sally Brown
According to the comic strip, Charlie Brown’s sister, Sally was born on May 26, 1959 where Charlie marked the occasion by passing out chocolate cigars to his friends. She grew up quickly. She took her first steps on August 22, 1960 and she fell in love with Linus, Lucy’s brother, on the next day. It was love at first sight, at least on her part.

America's Got Talent's final five. (NBC)

To make great chagrin, that lovable and always fun clown, Tape Face was the first to be eliminated. Linkin' Bridge came in 9th place, contortionist Sofie Dossi came in 8th, the extremely talented artistic juggler Viktor Kee came in 7th and young opera singer Laura Bretan came in 6th place.

So that brings us to the final five. Who won the night? Continue reading after the jump to find out!
