Paris Hilton and Midgets and Goats, Oh My
With all the heavy news we've had lately -- Anna Nicole's death, Britney's rehab and the bust up of the Van Halen reunion that never got off the ground anyway -- my mind was ripe for distraction.
So, let me tell you how this went down. I was minding my own business, clicking around the New York Post when I read the following sentence about Paris Hilton's 26th birthday party:
After downing TY KU liquor and bottles of Dom Perignon, guests reported seeing Hilton play with a monkey while a band of midgets led a pack of goats around the room. (Full Item)
Immediately recognizing that my 26th birthday party did not include midgets, goats or monkeys, my finely-tuned Celebritologist sixth sense knew there was something here worth investigating. So, because it's my job (hey, someone has to do it) to probe these things while Chris Cillizza is busy writing about important stuff, I hastened over to Google to see what I could find out about the link between celebrities and midgets.
Expecting to find some kind of list of celebrities with midget sidekicks (Johnny Knoxville and Wee-man, Kid Rock and Joe C., Dr. Evil and Mini-Me), I found something much more disturbing: This Worth1000 gallery of celebrities with PhotoShopped mini-clones.
All I can do, gentle readers, is pass the link on to you as yet another example of the power celebrity has to make us be ridiculously crass. I would go into a long dissertation, but I find my only recourse to retain some small shred of sanity is a pedicure.
