Unlikely bedfellows

Dipping into the recent edition of the LRB, I described Alan Bennett and Patricia Lockwood as unlikely bedfellows. It’s a term that I’ve also used for

And it occurs to me with Norman Wisdom, Mother Teresa, and polyphony in Albania, as well as Anna Mahler and Groucho Marx

More naturally, one associates Brian with Stewie, and Li Manshan with Andy Capp.

Cf. Felicitous conjunctions, and Global audience.
