The Economy is in the Toilet...With the Rest of Us

So it's been a while now and I think it's safe to say that things have pretty much gone right down the shitter. The economy is barely afloat, North Korea wants to make the world glow in the dark by finally kicking off that whole nuclear winter thing, and the swine flu A-porka-lypse has officially begun. Not to mention that EVERYBODY is frickin' dead...or gay. Either way, it's bad. Not the gay thing, but you get the picture. Never fear, though. You know the economy has to turn around soon, because no matter how bad you've got it, there are a lot of people out there that make more money in a day than you'll make in your entire lifetime. Doesn't that make you feel better?

Perez Hilton gets his own economy for doing what I do for nothing

So here's a little dingleberry that floated by me on the internets today; blogger Perez Hilton's celebrity schmelebrity blog scored 14 million views in a single day. To put this in perspective, every blog made in Wordpress combined only get about 20 million views per day in total. Now I can't bash Perez Hilton for making a bazillion dollars in a single day for writing about something that nobody should be interested in (in this case the breakup between uber hot Megan Fox and whatever Brian Austin Green). The whole thing still leaves a bad taste in my mouth, though. The worst part about it is that even for that kind of money I don't think I could pretend to be that into celebrity gossip. Wait, wait. Let me try my hand at this. OKAY, so yesterday Chris Brown and Rihanna awwwwwwwwww God I can't do it. Oh well, at least obscurity and being poor are two things I've gotten used to.
