Orlando Bloom Got A Tattoo Of His Son's Name In Morse Code On His Arm—But He Apparently Spelled It Wrong
We love to make fun of people who get tattoos in other languages and manage to get it wrong.
I'm looking at you, Ariana.
Ariana Grande tried to get a tattoo of 7 rings on her in Japanese but she SPELLED IT WRONG and instead it reads “BB… https://t.co/5JeWRuaedm— adumb (@adumb)1548830689.0
But morse code seems safe, right?
Well, Orlando Bloom found that in such an intricate graphic language, mistakes are readily possible.
Bloom hoped to dedicate his new tattoo to his son, Flynn.
Bloom said that the morse code inked on his arm spelled out Flynn's name, and that the numbers were the date (01/06/2011) and time (09:03) of his birth.
But there is one snag...
The morse code spells out "Frynn."

@HuffPost That's why: Never words. Even in Morse code.— Tekla (@Tekla)1581625285.0
In Morse Code, "Flynn" would read:
. . _ . . _ . . _ . _ _ _ . _ .
Bloom's tattoo reads:
. . _ . . _ . _ . _ _ _ . _ .
It's the difference of a single dot.

Bloom has yet to comment on the misspelled tattoo.But why get something imprinted on your skin if you haven't double checked?

@ladbible It doesn’t make any sense double checking stuff before you have it tattooed on your skin...... 🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️— Swiftycous 🤔🤔🤔 (@Swiftycous 🤔🤔🤔)1581623519.0
In 2020, let's all resolve to double check the permanent ink before it goes on our skin, shall we?
Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry officially announced their engagement earlier this month, and the actual proposal sounds like it was a doozy.
Perry stopped by the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live to dish on what it was like to be proposed to by Legolas himself.
Perry said the two went to dinner––and that she expected they'd head to an art show.
"But we pulled up to a helicopter," she said. She and Bloom boarded: There was champagne on hand for a toast.
"The box was in his pocket and he had written down everything he wanted to say in a note to divert -- he was gonna pull it out while I was reading it," she said.
Things went awry after Bloom tried to pull the tiny engagement ring box out of the even tinier pocket of his jacket. His elbow hit the champagne bottle in the process. It fell to the floor of the helicopter and shattered, sending shards of glass everywhere.
"And I'm like, 'No, I'm just reading the note. I know you're not doing anything,'" she said, saying that she was able to dismount from the helicopter and meet family members once they'd landed on a rooftop without further incident.
"My whole family was there, and all my friends... he did so well," she said lovingly.
You can watch Perry recall the memory below.

Take a look at that ring, by the way.
That story's adorable... and it's a pretty cute disaster. But love is love as they say.

Perry recalled that she and Bloom first fell in love after they bonded over an In-N-Out Burger at the Golden Globe Awards a few years ago.
"He stole one off of my table. I was sitting with Denzel Washington and he took it and I was like, 'Who...oh, you're so hot. Fine, take it,'" she said. "Then I saw him at a party and I was like, 'How are those onions resting on your molars?' He was like, 'I like you.' Then, you know, cut to!"
You never know, ladies and gents. The love of your life could be a burger snatcher. Get off Tinder right now and head to your nearest fast food restaurant.
Nancy Pelosi... social media star?
That's pretty much the status Pelosi attained after her sarcastic clapping during President Donald Trump's State of the Union address became an instant meme.
Here it is again, just in case you've been living under a rock for the last week.

The internet obsessed over the clap, giving rise to a slew of memes like this one...

...and it looks like "the clap heard around the world" has found fans in the likes of singer Katy Perry (Teenage Dream) and actor Orlando Bloom (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), who met Pelosi at the MusiCares Person of the Year ceremony honoring country music legend Dolly Parton at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Did we mention the three of them took the opportunity to recreate Pelosi's State of the Union clap?
The internet ate this up.

Last week, Christine Pelosi said that memeable clap brought her "back to the teen years."
"Oh yes that clap took me back to the teen years. She knows. And she knows that you know. And frankly she's disappointed that you thought this would work. But here's a clap," wrote Christine on Twitter.
