Your Own Personal Paparazzi

Always wished you had your own paparazzi on retainer to treat you like a celebrity every time you went to the supermarket? Well, now you can have one. Actually, you can have nine of them.

A company called eParty Unlimited is selling a set of nine plastic Paparazzi that can be at your beck and call. All for the paltry sale price of $15.49.

Here's how the company describes the tiny photographic terrors:

Longing to be in the spotlight?

Now you can have the true red carpet experience. These eager paparazzi are poised and ready to snap your picture and get an interview.

Each set includes nine 2-1/2" (6.4 cm) to 4" (10.2 cm) tall, hard vinyl paparazzi, complete with a cardboard "velvet rope" to keep the throngs at bay.
Now, you too can know what it feels like to be Britney Spears.

What's Wrong With This Picture?

Pictures don't lie. Or so the cliche goes. Well, actually, that's not true. These days, pictures can be made to say whatever you want them to say.

Case in point: this week's cover story in OK! magazine about Jennifer Aniston's and Orlando Bloom's supposed "romance." It must be true because they have photos, right?


The photo in question, the original of which can be seen here on the right, has been heavily cropped. So heavily in fact, that Eva Longoria -- who joined Aniston in greeting Bloom -- has been cropped out altogether. The photo also has been flopped. The doctored version ran on the cover of OK! and is seen here on the left.

All this just to sell a crappy rag with fake stories about a star's supposed budding romance.
