The rights to photos of the much-heralded and very possibly semi-divine Brangelina twins are up for bids, but I’m guessing you can’t afford it. Not because you don’t have $16 million dollars plus just sitting in your chequing account – I’m totally sure that you do, especially if you skipped your last student loan payment – but because they’re only accepting bids that contain the following proviso: we, the undersigned celebrity gossipmongers and photo whores, do hereby swear to not only hand over all of our moneyz to the couple known as Brangelina for the right to publish photos of their twin divinities, but to also forego referring to said couple by the name Brangelina.
Which, you know, sets the bar way too high for me.
Sawf News is reporting that the bidding for said photos has gone beyond $16 million dollars (other reports have it at $25 million. You know, the GDP of a small country. Or just money for lots and lots of candy.) Which puts the price on these kids’ heads at well more than double that of any other celebrity kid, and well above the price of feeding, oh, say, some hundreds of thousands of the world’s hungry.
Dear world: I’m glad that you have your priorities straight.
