Excuse Me

What the hell ever happened to people saying excuse me? I've just spent six hours at the great state fair of Oklahoma, and while I was run over by strollers, stepped on, and bumped into by men who I assure you did not need one more turkey leg...I did not hear one single "excuse me."

I know the fair is full of white trash, but I thought even white trash had SOME manners. Even when I would say "excuse me" I would not get one in return. What is wrong with people? Common courtesy has flown out the window.

Makes me feel better for playing "naturally skinny or addicted to methamphetamine" while walking around and eating my corn dog.

Who wore it best?

So, let's talk about this delightful segment in US Weekly. In case you're not familiar, the segment takes 2-3 celebrities who have been photographed wearing the same dress, shirt, skirt, whatever. Then, some VIP *read intern* asks 100 people on the street which celebrity wore it best. People vote, and there you have it, one emerges a winner.

But here's the problem. Sometimes, those folks at Us Weekly, they don't play fair. Take for example this week's competition. A gorgeous royal blue dress featured on both Mary Hart and Giuliana Rancic. Now, Mary Hart is a good looking lady. And she's and especially good looking lady for someone who's 60. But Giuliana Rancic is 35. She has a body that looks 25 years younger than Mary Hart's. Why don't you just put Betty White in the same dress you put on Kim Kardashian and then see who wore it best?

Really? Do you even need to ask that question? Who's going to vote for the old lady in the dress unless she's up against another old lady in the same dress? Just a totally unfair competition. Must have been a barren week for duplicate dress wearing celebrities for them to come up with that one.
