Celebrity Compassion and Stupidity

The Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson did a nose dive off the gossip bandwagon and chose not to poke fun at Britney Spears for at least one night. What? Compassion? Should I brace myself for gossip Armageddon?

The host of CBS' "The Late Late Show" told viewers Monday that after seeing photos of the 25-year-old pop star's shaved head, he reconsidered making jokes at the expense of the "vulnerable." "For me, comedy should have a certain amount of joy in it," Ferguson said. "It should be about attacking the powerful -- the politicians, the Trumps, the blowhards -- going after them. We shouldn't be attacking the vulnerable." Ferguson recalled his battle with alcoholism and said he worries Spears may be having troubles of her own. "Now I'm not saying Britney is alcoholic, I don't know what she is -- alcoholic or not -- but she clearly needs help," he said. [source]

I'm going to follow this lead and not post anything about Britney while she's recovering and her hair is growing back. She needs to get better for her two small children. God knows they don't need to be with K-Fed. Speaking of trashy people, shaving heads and attacking Donald Trump...Trump and WWE chairman Vince McMahon will both manage wrestlers to fight at Wrestlemania 23. The winning manager will get to shave his counterpart's head after the match, which has been dubbed "Battle of the Billionaires." Please. There is no way Donald Trump is shaving that combover. Plus, everyone knows WWE isn't real. Tara Conner in a live poro shoot with a member of the audience chosen as the star would be a much better gimmick.
