Let me first say that like many, I can be victim to the "point of sale" purchases. You know, you're at the grocery store and you are about to check out, but you end up buying a pack of gum, nail clippers and a magazine. But there is one phenomenon at the checkout aisle that is complete nonsense: fake celebrity news magazines. Now I am not a complete hater of "fake news". I think the Onion is great - shit, I even wrote a fake news story in our blog de-friending leads to beatdown. However, the purpose of these publications are simply comedic.
Fake celebrity magazines like National Enquirer completely boggle my mind. I mean, the amount of press REAL celebrity news gets is already dumbfounding. It amazes me that people know more about what Jennifer Anniston's queefs smell like more than what is going on in the world. But to make fake celebrity news up that people will buy?! It really says alot about the type of society we live and HAVE lived in. I mean, the National Enquirer has been around for as long as I can remember. People actually buy into this crap. Its really sad to me. I apologize I couldn't make this post funnier; this is just something so nonsensical, I had to get it out there.
