Angel was a centerfold
Last year I made up a list of "Phrases I never want to hear again," and prominent on that list to the extent that it was the only item that drew a reproach in comments, anyway was this:
"Anna Nicole Smith," unless followed by "was found dead"
In the wake of Vickie's demise (that was her real name, and I always liked it better anyway), I have decided to append a note about it to that post. (Unlike some denizens of blogdom, I have never suffered from the delusion that I could cover my tracks.)
Meanwhile, were I inclined to do one of my infamous pop-culture sendoffs and believe me, if I couldn't come up with something heartfelt for Frankie Laine, I surely wouldn't be able to say anything about Ms Smith I'd be better served just ripping off this item from Tam:
[S]ince there are plenty of celebrity-watching blogs out there eulogizing and scandalizing in all their banner-ad festooned, audio-streaming glory, I figured I'd let them do what they do best, which is pretending to care about Anna Nicole Smith, and I'd stick to doing what I do best, which is making fun of stuff that pretty much has nothing to do with Anna Nicole Smith. That is, until I saw that PETA had released a statement on her demise. The highlight?
"A long-time vegetarian who had slimmed down into a stunning beauty when she stopped eating meat..."
...and she died at 39, you tree-hugging dingus. I'm her age and, while I lack the dope habit, I do smoke and I eat meat and you don't see me keeling over in any Florida hotels, do you? So there you go: Learn from Anna, go eat some steak today.
I'm readying a New York strip for the grill this evening.
