On Paris Hilton, David Letterman and Bill Murray

David Letterman came up with an absolute gem the other night when he was talking about Paris Hilton. Here is David on Paris:

“Paris Hilton has taken to reading the bible to help her through her upcoming jail sentence. But, she admittedly is no expert on the bible. She thought Deuteronomy meant having an operation to remove your deuter.”

Paris will soon be more fodder for the talk shows when June 5th arrives. That is the date that she is scheduled to report to the slammer for 45 days because she was caught driving after her drivers license had been suspended.

Prepare yourself for some very clever quips from some of the professional quipsters out there. It has been so rare for celebrities to get convicted and sentenced these days, that it is truly hard to believe that one of the self-promoters is actually going to get punished for exhibiting anti-social behavior.

It would not surprise me if something happens to prevent Paris from actually going to jail. Some judge will issue a stay or the Governator will give her a pardon.

It was recently reported that she was seen buying a bible and a self-help manual. It is hard to believe that Paris has suddenly gotten religion, and some believe that it is merely a ploy to convince a judge that she has changed her ways.

Bill Murray was quoted once regarding money and fame. Bill said:

“To people who want to be rich and famous, I'd say, ‘Get rich first and see if that doesn't cover it.’”

Well, Paris was obviously very rich before she became a celebrity, and obviously that didn’t cover it for her. How many people even knew who she was before her infamous x-rated video showed up on the Internet?

She didn’t just want to be famous, she wanted to be famous and desired by men everywhere.

Others believe that Paris’ upcoming jail sentence is merely a publicity gimmick. Her publicists have been very good at getting her name out there in front of the public eye. Did you know that Paris is 26 years old and already has an autobiography entitled “Confessions of an Heiress?”

Paris’ jail sentence may be a real consequence to a young woman’s overindulgence in herself or it may be only a publicity stunt designed for self-promotion. But Paris has managed to get the whole planet talking about her once again.

What does that tell you?
