Celebritology's 2010 April Fools: Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt

They're plastic fantastic, tabloid fodder, hopelessly delusional and just won't go away. And that is why Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are this year's Official Celebritology April Fools.

Honestly, we didn't have to deliberate much about which celeb deserved this year's honor. In fact, the couple had already clinched the title when yesterday's breaking Speidi news -- that they had adopted Native American names (Her: White Wolf, Him: Running Bear) in an "effort to become more spiritual."

It's undeniable, this motivated couple wanted it. Below, just a few (trust me, there was no shortage of material) of the ways in which Speidi made themselves standout candidates over the past year:

April 2009: The newly-married duo honeymoon in Mexico, swine flu's ground zero, complete with surgical masks.

August 2009: Heidi's "Gong Show"-worthy performance at the Miss Universe pageant:

Sept. 2009: Before he was Running Bear, Pratt claimed he had legally changed his name to "King Spencer" and tried -- thus far unsuccessfully -- to launch his own musical career:

November 2009: Montag, who was already a pretty (if dippy) southern California girl, undergoes 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day. The result? Heidi-bot, who walks, talks and deadpans "beauty is on the inside."

March 2010: Heidi's insistence that she's ready to be a "full time motion picture actress" after filming a cameo in an upcmoing Adam Sandler movie. Next up for the thespian? "I am making the first 3-D beach comedy about a shark that attacks a small beach town and I save the day with my 3-D boobs."

I'd say we chose wisely.

Dang, Spedi totally missed the mark on those names. They shoulda been Running Bear & Little White Dove.

But then they're not quite old enough to remember any version of that song.

I nominate them as the "Celebutards We Stop Talkiing About So They'll Go Away."

Little White Dove

Of course! That's brilliant.

As a Quatchi and an honorary Native American -- my Indian name is Ugly MoFo Who Smells Bad --let me supply more appropriate names for these two:

Heidi's Indian name should be
Woman Who Wears Perdue Oven Stuffer Chicken Breasts

Spencer's Indian name should be
Man Who Makes Fire Hydrant Look Smart

wade, I concur. Or at least, when we do talk about them we use the lizard-island-sanctioned reference "Heincer" instead of the too-cool-sounding Speidi--especially since they themselves are so fond of the latter. Push back.
