The donkey not only has longer ears than the horse but also typically eats much less. Also, its fur is not waterproof. The domesticated animal, Equus asinus, can defend itself with a powerful kick from its hind legs. While present in early American society, the donkey's popularity was not widespread until the Gold Rush, thanks to its social disposition and ability to carry tools. Many people consider the donkey a cute and comical animal, but it has a reputation for being stubborn. A popular German proverb contends that a donkey can dress up in a lion suit, but its ears will always stick out and reveal its true identity. The donkey is helpful in herding sheep, cattle or goats. The animal is also commonly known as a jackass, burro, jennet, hinny and ass. It has a loud, brassy voice that goes, "Hee-haw! Hee-haw! Hee-haw!"

Let me repeat my mini-rant to a few friends on this:-

That’s the whole problem innit? Some no-talent celeb who can’t sing but has gotten plenty of “exposure” (in more ways than one) can marshal all those resources to produce something that sounds half-good, but singers with real talent continue to languish in small clubs.

You can tell the song is one of those that just about anyone can sing, i.e. it doesn’t really stretch the vocals. Typical pop-fluff that is endemic of the entire manufactured boy-band/girl-group/Idol phenomenon (and at least Idols usually can sing a bit). In contrast, listen to just about any Christina Aguilera song – now that girl can sing!

And the record industry wonders why sales keep diminishing year on year. I’d rather spend my money on DVDs…

Edit: should clarify that in response to my sending the link, some friends commented that they thought "Stars Are Blind" wasn't bad, it's well-produced pop, and given the collaborators she had, it would be difficult for it to be crap. Hence my reference to "resources".

2nd edit: spelling of "can't sing" rather than "can't sign". I am assuming she can, indeed, sign her own name... :D

One of the greatest put downs I have ever read!

Joe Public doesn't like to pay for things based on 'talent'...Joe Public likes to pay for the "Flavor of the week".

And since Joe Public outweighs all of us, Joe Public (unfortunately) can influence what is popular and what isn't.

FYI: "Banksy" has his own website but I just gave it a cursory glance and.......well, you'll have to find it for yourself! :)

In place of Ms Hilton's bubble-gum pop songs, the CDs feature Banksy's own rudimentary compositions. On the cover of the doctored CD, Ms Hilton's dress has been digitally repositioned to reveal her bare breasts; on an inside photo, her head has been replaced with that of her dog.


Hmmmmm so did anyone notice?
Did the dog sue?

I'm trying to figure out the 'effects' of Banksy's gag. As I understand it, he used the same UPC bar code as Paris's actual CD, so anyone picking it up would get checked out normally. If that's the case, in effect the record stores are earning free money on each sale of Banksy's disc, since he sijmply left the CDs on the shelves (presumably on top of Paris's (pun intended...)), they didn't pay for it whilst customers do. Apparently many customers who got the gag discs are happy to keep them too.

Most curious. And a big :emoji_thumbsup: to Banksy in the first place...


(Hmmm, first time I've ever used any of the new banana smilies...)

From last Friday's episode of Late Night with Conan O'Brien:

All the Paris Hilton DUI Jokes in 1 Minute

I heard when the cops gave Paris the breathalyzer test, they told her to blow and she started sucking!

I heard she got rammed from behind and then she got in her car!

She was driving her favorite car, a Hummer!

She was at the bar all night, sucking down tall boys.

It's a good thing she has experience with penal systems!

She was cited for DWI, driving while inseminated.

Luckily, she made bail, then she made Bill.

She's lucky she didn't crash. One minute she's driving, the next minute, a big white bag is exploding in her face!

She's lucky she didn't find herself wrapped around a pole!

Decent jokes, but 5 will get you 10 that Hilton will be showing up in a few weeks to shoot the shit with Conan.

This is my philosophy: The joke is funny until the object of ridicule is in on it. After that, what's the point?

Sincerely,

John Kilduff...

The great Hollywood back-slapping tradition continues.

"5 will get you 10?" Anyways, I don't think Paris will ever be on any late night talk show unless she completely changes her act. She is the joke.

The funniest thing I read in her latest saga was her whining about the excessive coverage her DUI elicited, complaining about why was everyone so interested in what she did. Hello? Didn't you build your entire "career" around the public's inexplicable fascination with what you did, no matter how insipid or asinine or personal? (Simple Life, anyone? Never mind THAT video...)

Odd that the attention junkie now complains of too much attention... :rolleyes:(I was going to call her something ruder, but discretion prevailed.)
