Goodbye, English Rose
This morning as I was looking at CNN.com for more pictures of the cruiseazy FLDS Oregon Trail people, I came across an article discussing how Brigitte Bardot was convicted of racism for writing that Muslims were destroying France. While I fully support jailing people for expressing their opinions and exercising their freedom of speech, the more alarming thing here is that no one was convicted of destroying Brigitte's face. It looks like a skunk died on her head and her face was hit with a frying pan and then steamrolled by a tractor, and if it is the ultimate fate of a sex symbol to end up as a withered old hag writing nutbag letters to the French President, I think Marilyn Monroe had the right idea by dying young and beautiful.
I think the bottom line here is that if Liz Taylor ends up looking like a clown in a wheelchair, and Brigitte Bardot ends up looking like this, there is no hope for the rest of us and time to throw in the towel, put down the Guerlain Issima Success Eye, call Equinox and revoke my membership and then calmly head to the nearest tar pit and jump in.
