Stories I Don't Need To See On A Monday Morning

A statue of a "Nude Britney Spears Giving Birth"? Apparently so:

The clay sculpture features a nude Britney Spears on a bearskin rug while giving birth to her firstborn because, according to [Sculptor Daniel] Edwards, pop-star Britney Spears is the "ideal model for Pro-Life."

Normally, I'd insert some snippy witticism right about here, but there is just so much wrong with this that it's caused my brain to crash. I need coffee and crullers STAT!

UPDATE: And while we're on the subject of cultural decay, my pal Marjorie the Unclimber is laying into Club Libby Lu again. If you don't know about it, this is a place at the mall that caters to young girls' birthday parties and such, providing them the means to dress up like, well, Britney Spears, and dance about for the viewing benefit of passers-by. Call me old-fashioned, but I absolutely forbid the Llama-ettes to go there.

I shudder to open Drudge each morning to see what fresh new abomination awaits.

I'm inclined to think this is some twisted, Jeff Koons-style PoMo goof. And if you've seen pictures of the thing, as I have (*shudder*), the face looks nothing at all like Britney.

More horror. Say it ain't so, Robocop. Say it ain't so.

"The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across The Babs Dimension"

Don't sully the name of Buckaroo.
And isn't a pregnant Britney Spears actually the ideal model for pro-abortion?

That thought did indeed wander through my head....

Daniel Edwards is a crap artist. That sculpture looks like Charlize Theron, not Britney.
