Paris Hilton Oppresses Free Speech

Looks like Paris Hilton found a way to use my favorite celebrity artist to get the cameras pointed at her yet again. New York Post's Page 6 had this blurb in it:
Hilton sicced her lawyer Gregory Gabriel on one of our favorite bloggers, Michael K of, after K posted a parody of "The Simple Life" poster on his site making fun of Hilton and her pal Nicole Richie. Gabriel wrote to K: "This poster clearly implies Ms. Hilton has loathsome diseases and also implies Ms. Hilton uses Vicodin. The inferences . . . are false and de famatory."

Gabriel is of course speaking about "14's" latest image from the Gallery of the Absurd, pictured at right. What Page 6 didn't really mention is that Hilton's lawyer also demand a cease and desist from 14 as well. So far the pictures are still up on both sites.

This is a textbook definition of satire, folks and something that, despite anyones' objection, is still protected by what's left of our country's constitution.

Paris, I'm really sorry you don't like the picture. Sit down and shut the fuck up.

Personally I think the likenesses are uncanny.

As Jonathan Swift said, "Satire is a sort of glass, wherein beholders do generally discover everybody's face but their own."
