"Happy Birthday, MISTEr Present..Prezden..Prets..Uh, Chief Guy Thingy. You're Hot!"

Jonathan V. Last over at Galley Slaves reports that Paris Hilton may be considering remaking some old Marilyn Monroe movies.

I reckon this is either going to cause you to put something through your computer screen in horror and rage or rupture your spleen laughing. I leave it to you to decide which course to take.

UPDATE: The Irish Elk refers to one of my favorite awful movie lines, which got me wondering: If Paris did do a remake of The Prince and the Showgirl, who would get saddled with playing the Prince? My vote, based on recent history, would be Kenneth Branagh. He who rises by supplanting Larry should fall by supplanting Larry.

You think Olivier had it bad........

How aboud just shuddering, retching violently, and recoiling in revulsion and loathing?

Thanks very much!

I have to confess that, as I carry no brief for Monroe, I find the whole thing hysterically funny. I know there are others who would disagree violently, which is why I proposed both reactionary options.

So amusink, how you vill laugh!

I was trying to figure out who might take Olivier's place as The Prince. Based on precedent, I think Kenneth Branagh ought to get tagged with the part.
