Paris Hilton
Like with the iPhone (story below), I sincerely doubt I have to tell you who Paris Hilton is. I'm not sure, however, any of us could say what exactly it is she does for a living. Well, I've read that she charges Big Bucks to appear at people's parties, but what do you write on your tax forms in the box that says "Occupation" if that's what you do?

The "hoax" I'm referring to here, though, is her alleged conversion to--what? Christianity? Zoroastrianism? Scientology? Whatever sect she's aligning herself with now, she's turned over a new leaf after her stint in Oz. Sure, in the Olden Days, a person might have to rot on Devil's Island for years before deciding that there is a Controlling Entity in the Universe that one should respect, but in our accelerated age, apparently 23 days of wearing an unflattering orange jumpsuit can have the same effect on a person.

I note with interest that the New Improved Paris is wearing either no makeup or less obvious makeup since her brush with Fashion Hell. Sorry for being cynical, P.H., but I think the New You is more attributable to New P.R. than an epiphany.

UPDATE:

According to this story, bodog.com took bets on whether or not Paris would talk about God during her Larry King interview Wednesday night.

I think you may be confused as to what a hoax is. The whole fact that paris hilton has no apparent job isnt so much a hoax as it is a fact. no one is sayinig she has a job when she doesnt. no one is pretending that she is a hard working religious convert who is all well and good. all this information is speculation purely. so if you are going to run a site regarding hoaxes, keep with actual hoaxes, not just things that arent as they appear.....and the holocaust didnt happen.

Just so you know, I don't "run" this site. I'm just a fill-in while the owner and operator, Alex, is on a trip to Africa.

The "hoax" I was referring to (as I thought I made obvious), is her sudden discovery of religion, or whatever it is she's claiming (it isn't exactly clear, I don't think).

By the way, I'm a little unclear on whether in your last sentence you are actually claiming the Holocaust didn't happen.

Oh, woe, dread, consternattion, dismay and bummer. For lack of a hoax, CMG found Paris finding God. Okay... let me assist you some, my Cranky comrade. I belive the whole Paris/jail thing IS a hoax, perpetrated by the White House Office of Blonde Distraction. Think about it: put pouty princess predominantly, perpetually and purposefully... allow to simmer, let chimps like you and me talk about her, and forget all the other big stuff happening in the Real World (no reference to your Reality Show thread- I can remember when there was a real world before the Real World, but hey, I'm a neanderthal). Karl Rove is gleefully giggling right now, I'd bet. Can you imagine being in the room when this crap goes down? Karl giggles, Geedub giggle/snickers and Dick Cheney waugh waughs like The Penguin from some undisclosed location. BTW: If I had a chance for a million-dollar interview, I'd be willing to spend 23 days in a woman's prison. Actually, I'd do it for free, but, as I said, I'm a neanderthal. Free Paris with every copy of Hippo Eats Dwarf... Double Secret BTW: You're doing a heck of job, Dr. Crankenstein. Just ignore the pitchfork-wielding mob below, reenter the old windmill, and do your thing for Evil Alex. You da man (so is Anne Coulter, but that's more hoax grist for your windmill, eh wot?)

a minor point of clarification re: my above post- the more awake amongst you may note that I referred to Cranky and myself as Chimps, and then twice called myowndamnself a Neanderthal? Contraindicative you say (five time fast)? Not at all: I'm evolving. Cranky might just be a late bloomer

you know, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to suggest that Cranky was a pair of tardy, poofy underwear. That's just rude. I'm sure he's really a chimp. Although, I did suggest he was a Great Dane a few days ago... End the Hoax, Chimpy- uh, Cranky. Are you a man, a monkey or a large dog photoshopped onto Alex's couch? Come clean, you'll feel better, and you won't smell like fish. Not to suggest you do. Doing a heck of a job, you stinky monkey-dog

Yknow, Hairy, your act is wearing thin. Might I suggest you find another hobby than littering this forum with nonsense? I wish there was a "Block this user" option like Yahoo!'s message boards have....

Ah, Kevin. I'm... hurt. Goodbye, cruel world! I'm banished forever from MOH because Kevin thinks I'm lame! Adieu, adios, sayonara, toodles. I... go on to bigger, better things (sniff), and I'm taking my stale act with me. And you can't follow, and don't try. I mean it. STAY. No, Kevin. Sit. Good boy. Eeyuw, don't lick yourself in public. Bad Kevin, bad.

You know, Kevin's right, now that I think of it. I have been littering this site with nonsense, and I'm really, really sorry. Really. I'm not lying; I'm really, really, really... did you know that if you repeat the word "Liliput" you begin to say "Putlili" after a while? But seriously, Kevin, it's not like there's a finite bit of webspace to allow for my insights. If you don't like them, go on to the next post. Actually, there IS a finite bit of webspace, but let's not get into that. That would be a tangental excursion of this thread line, so let's talk about Paris Hilton, okay? Ahem: Paris and Hairy, sitting in a tree, K-E-V-I-N-I-N-G, first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes my posts for K-man to disparage. Hey, you can't please everybody, nor would I want to. sniff

Good news, MOHers: I've found a new hobby, other than posting what Kevin calls nonsense here on the site (but what some might call provacative, Rorschachian erudition designed to offer a world of wonder to the less fortunate). My new hobby is: spoon bending thru sheer force of will. NOW can I post some more Hoax stuff, Kevin? Unless you'd believe that I Really Can bend spoons. Well, I can actually, but you'd have to be here for me to prove it, and I'm not sure you'd like how I'd get you to ass-ist me on bending those spoons. Let's just say, you'd be glad I didn't take up fork bending. Hey, it was your idea... best regards

Harry, just because you arent important in real life, does not mean you can feign importance here. You are not awesome in real life or here.

I accept your apology. No, no... don't thank me. I'm kind to dumb animals. Awesome

I think Paris Hilton is a robot. Like they have in Westworld.

Also, I think the stories of her 'not eating much' in jail are a hoax. I refuse to believe that stick insect eats ANYTHING.

For a while I thought 'Paris Hilton' was her stage name, imagine my surprise to find out it's her real name!

It could have been worse, I suppose, she could have been called 'Bangkok Hilton'.

(It would have been more appropriate, mind you!)

I caught the hoax right off the bat. My ass is in jail for 24 hours and Whamm-0, I got Jeezus! But let me look at my notes to see which scripture is my favorite. The whole thing about the woman is a hoax. It's one thing to be smart and start a business out of public need and another to have million$ available to you to say, I want to start a fragrance or designer line, and have 300 people below you to get it in the works for your approval. It's evident when the news media guests all say how smart she is, it's sucking up the the princess who is about as smart as a box of rocks that found Jeezus to look good on Larry King.

cool mad
Sure, some people might feel that this isn't much of a virtue, but Paris was born a self-promoter -- despite her occasional protests to the contrary.

Man, there is a lot to say about her. But i have to admit that her latest purses collection is quite impressive. I would wear one!
