The life of the mind...

Pamela Anderson, as a spokesperson for PETA, has announced that she will be boycotting the Kentucky Derby this year. Apparently she has previously attended as a guest of the event's prestigeous Millionaire's Row. On one such occasion, she reportedly delighted a no-doubt rapt assortment of hillbillies by flashing her mounds of skin-encased silicon baggies at them, sans even the promised recompense of a string of plastic beads.

Aside from the Derby being, no doubt, mean to horses, Ms Anderson is apparently trying to call attention to event sponsor KFC. (Actually, the sponsor is Yum! Brands, a KFC subsidiary. Now if she were boycotting the company for it's moronic name...) It turns out, and I'm sure this will shock many, that KFC is apparently involved in the deaths of quite a few chickens. Ms. Anderson has previously corresponded with Kentucky Governor Ernie Fletcher, in a failed attempt to effect the removal of a bust of Col. Harlen Sanders from the Kentucky Statehouse.


Ms. Anderson, famous the world over for the numerous times she has had her chest cut open in order to enlarge, enhance, shape, firm and even reduce the size of her 'breasts,' noted that Col. Sanders' bust was a monument to a man who "mutilates God's creatures."

Of course, this is one of only myriad examples of such celebrity antics, but really, who is the intended demographic for this boycott? In other words, who is going to change their mind due to, or even take into account on an issue they haven't really considered before, the positions of Pamela Anderson? (And please, no smutty jokes.)

Ms. Anderson is of course more than welcome to waste her copious free time as she wishes, inbetween filming that ghastly-looking Fox sitcom she has (assuming it's still on) and spending her well-earned millions of dollars. However, does even Ms. Anderson find it less than terrifying that she, or more pertinently her balloonish breast implants, might have influence over somebody's--anybody's--political beliefs?

By the way, Ms. Anderson is Canadian. I don't know why I mentioned that, but it's one less thing we American have to apologize for.

Maybe the bust of Colonel Sanders is firmer and better shaped than hers, and she's just jealous.

How can you be a member of PETA and enjoy watching a horserace? However Colonel Sanders is bad, and eating chicken is bad.
