recent probes show, our celebrities are hollow

I was going to put up a really tasteless post tonight on celebrity narcissism, and the inflated value we in this culture place on wealth, youth and beauty, and how nice it is, on those rare occasions, when we get to see the hollow, arrogant creatures who benefit from this shared obsession of ours get sucked down into the cold, dark reality that the rest of us have to navigate every day. It probably would have rubbed some people the wrong way, as I don’t think many in my audience take pleasure in the misfortune of others, regardless of how terribly evil they might be, but the thought of a gleefully-ignorant, mean and manufactured creature like Paris Hilton submitting to a body cavity search, or a manipulative, predatory, rapist asshole like her former boyfriend Joe Francis being sodomized on video really does bring a smile to my face. I know it’s not something that I shouldn’t admit publicly, but it’s true. Sue me.

[On a related note, evidence was made public today that proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the same thing is happening to all of us, at least figuratively.]

    OK, that was, to some extent, hyperbole. While I do like seeing loathsome people “get what’s coming to them” in a general sense, I don’t take pleasure in hearing about anyone being violated in the way Joe Francis was. I wouldn’t with wish that on anyone…

    She’s already out of jail. Fantastic, isn’t it?

    From Wikipedia, for those of you who get off on this kind of stuff:

    In a thorough visual body cavity search, a flashlight is used to illuminate body orifices, including nostrils, ears, mouth, male penis (urethra and foreskin), female vagina, and rectum. Generally, the detainee is required to manipulate these body parts so that they can be examined.

    During manual body cavity searches, body orifices are probed using fingers or instruments. Because of the risk of injury, most western authorities specify that these searches can only be done by medical professionals. Further, the circumstance in which these inspections may be done is often restricted. For example, they are done on individuals refusing to offer to consent to a visual body cavity search or in situations where there is strong evidence to suspect the presence of contraband.
