Sour cherries + rhubarb make strawberries + rhubarb cry with shame at knowing themselves the lesser couple. The former are the guys you want to hang out with. They're the pair you know has a thousand inside jokes (but not in a superior way) and wear each other's clothes in really interesting combinations and are the perfect dinner companions and never stay angry for long. You know you'll celebrate sour cherries + rhubarb's 50th anniversary someday with an awesome pool party and sparkling lemonade drinks and witty music, while strawberries + rhubarb might invite you over to stand looking off into other people's lawns or sit on their slightly uncomfortable chairs and watch by-then incredibly old episodes of America's Funniest Home Videos (with the sound off, at least; they're not all bad) and drink beers and not talk to each other and you'll all be wearing boring shoes.
