Ye Olde Gods must be angry and hurling bolts at the competition. Now — do you think Christians would perceive this as an ‘accident’ or a ‘sign’? C’mon, Christians, tell the truth now…

“Throw Paris Hilton In Jail” Petition Gains Momentum, Dirtbags

May 23rd, 2007 by hcm

Oh, joyous day! The fabled “Throw Paris Hilton In Jail” internet counter-petition has gained the backing of some, er, heavyweights as Motley Crue add their voice to the clamor. That’s right, Paris. Leave the drinky driving to the pros.

Preparations are underway…

…for Paris Hilton’s correctional sleepover. How does a socialite prepare for 45 days of the joint? Why, by smoking a celebratory joint, of course. Now — I’m sure none of us are surprised that Paris smokes weed, and even less so that a picture of this behavior is out on the interblags. What is interesting in this article is the mention that the “Free Paris Hilton” internet petition is woefully behind the “Jail Paris Hilton” one, by a factor of two.

It appears that the previously-mentioned petition to Free Paris has landed on The Governator’s desk. However, Gov. Schwarzengerfdflkh (that may not be the correct spelling), who knows his politicks and can discern between an Internet Petition and an actual Request for Pahdon, is claiming that he’s ‘too busy to help Paris’.

Paris Hilton Is Too Beautiful For Jail

May 10th, 2007 by hcm

The hits don’t stop a’comin’ — it’s like Paris, considerate socialite she is, is giving us a stockpile of Bad PR stories in anticipation of her incarceration. This one is about the petition to keep Paris out of jail that has been going around. I had a link to the original petition a couple of days ago, but for some reason neglected to post it. Now I know why — I was waiting for this article and the liberal sprinkling of snarky links it contains.

Meta Bad PR!

Oh, that wily Paris Hilton! Here we were, all a-twitter about her depriving us of 45 days of Bad PR hilarity while she cools her stiletto heels in the slammer, when she reveals that her imprisonment is all the fault of her PR person, opening the door for all sorts of interesting plot twists. There’s bad PR, then there’s Bad PR. And sometimes, it’s both!

Dear lord, where is our Bad PR blog going to go when Paris goes to the hoosegow?  Doesn’t Judge Sauer have any decency? Does he not realize that he’s tampering with a national resource?

India aghast at “Grinding” Gere

Well. Mr. “I’m with the Lama” is apparently in a heap of trouble for showering Bollywood superstar with inappropriate affection, in public, fer Krishna’s sake. There’s a warrant out for him in India, but he’s out of the country, so we’ll have to wait to see him answer to his misdeeds. In the meantime, I’m keeping a list. Let’s start with Pretty Woman.
