Ethiopians- This Year's Must-Have Accessory

Last year, Paris Hilton made those little dogs fashionable.


You remember, she was toting her chihuahua* around and pretty soon everyone had to have a little dog too. The always fashionable Village Idiot lugged our bassett hound around for a few days, and would probably still be doing so if it weren't for the herniated disc combined with the plethora of unpleasant smells that bassetts produce.


So, last week I was bringing in Mrs. Village Idiot's mail and read the cover of her People magazine. It appears that Angelina and Brad are going to adopt a small batch of African orphans. "Holy Crap!" thought I, "they've discovered next year's chihuahua!" Soon I expect that all of Hollywood's A-list will be jetting off to Africa and adopting babies to haul around on their arms. If I had a little venture capital, I might set up a center where they could rent babies from me for big events, but I'm still trying to rebuild my finances after investing so heavily in my last eerily similar can't-miss scheme, "Rent a Spice Girl."

Mark my words, people. Everyone from Britney to Cameron to Demi will soon be spotted toting babies instead of Chihuahuas.

Trendy Paris Hilton in 2006?

*"Toting Her Chihuahua" is a punk rock band just waiting to happen, don'tcha think?

Wow! I bet you're probably right! I reckon we'll see a huge number of Hollywood types adopting African children, especially after the G 8 summit deal with all the rock singers and movie stars trying to "raise consciousness about Africa." Whatever that means exactly. Aren't people already aware of Africa? It's a whole continent, how could one not be aware of it? Do we really need to have rock concerts to make people aware of it?

Wow, you're totally ahead of the trend on this one. Incidentally, I have heard both Jessica Simpson and Britney Spears saying that they will adopt in the future - although also admittedly, both just want to avoid getting fat. It's not good for the career you know.
