"Honey Boo Boo, Mother Teresa & The Kardasians...

Rate: 4 Flag

...there's a Fine Line between Being Famous & Making a Difference"!

"Why is it we want so badly to memorialize ourselves?  Even while we're still alive - we wish to assert our existence like Dogs Peeing on Fire Hydrants".  

Margaret Atwood, Poet/Writer

Yes, there's more than a Fine Line between Being Famous & Making a Difference - try San Andreas Fault! 

Case in point - the Kardasian's; bless their mercenary hearts.  What more than furthering their Brand could they have envisioned for themselves?

Mark my words - that Baby will come out holding a Water Softener! 

All I know is we're in for it & Kanye West is finding out how Joseph of Nazereth felt!

Benjamin Franklin said,

"So, as not to be forgotten, either write things worthy of reading or do things worthy of writing"!

Well, if that's all it takes - I'm hoping having a 9 Pound Baby counts!  ha ha

Whether it's winning "American Idol", "America's Got Talent", "The Pulitzer Prize" or being a Cupcake Champion - we all want to be remembered!

I just know it's not being able to eat 100 Hot Dogs in 2 minutes!  And then there's Honey Boo Boo...

hotdogs 

When Andy Warhol said, "Everyone will be famous for 15 minutes" - he must've been wearing a Mickey Mouse Watch & eating a fragrant Brownie & didn't know the Kardasian's were gonna multiply like - Kardasian's!

But there's always a slippery slope when you're going for your 15; isn't there? 

Who said "Be careful what you wish for"? 

Eliot Spitzer?  Robert Blake?  Petraeus?

But you won't go very far if you say, "Leave me alone - while I go & make a difference, okay"? 

 You don't want to knock people down in your wake - you have to have humility; otherwise you'll be known as an Ass while you're making a difference!   You don't want to end up "infamous", do you?

Because once you become infamous; nobody's gonna let you be famous - well, if you don't count Swartzenegger!  And that's iffy at this point!

Paul Reubens (Pee-Wee Herman) said,

"I probably have become more infamous from the 2 misdemeanors than probably anyone I could think of".

You know, it's never too late to Donate to "The Pee-Wee Herman DVD Fund"!

Yes Pee-Wee, if Osama can do it - you can too!

pee-wee-herman-aka-paul-reubens-the_3827972 

And "She Bangs", William Hung (& aren't we all) said,

"I'm infamous, a joke.  It doesn't make me feel good, because I'm a genuine person, but I don't let it get to me, because I am who I am".

Poor fella - at least he doesn't have the middle name of "Well"!

So whether you Pay it Forward or Write yourself a Check out to "Cash"; all my best to you in your quest for Immortality - while I try to bury some of my foolish missteps - reaching for the stars!

Very clever and funny, Marilyn; missed your posts. R
I really do enjoy reading your posts, Marilyn. I may not always comment, but I do read. Everyone needs a hearty belly laugh at least once a day, so I've added reading your blog to my routine of a daily sanity walk (7 miles which includes a stalker), followed by a 1-hour endorophin high (pure bliss I'm telling you!!), then fresh coffee with which to sit and read your posts which delightfully extends that feel-good sensation.

Thanks for lending out your funny bone. :->

~R~ and faved.
The reason I have not been around OS lately is because I was making a difference on Instagram. It made no difference; I'm still NOT famous nor infamous. R
After reading this I (almost) regret shelling out 5 bucks for a copy of People. Although it's a special double issue. You bring it better and funnier!
Aw shucks, thank you Thoth! Missed you too!
Thanks so much eyespye! And congrats on your EP I just read - when "they" were givin' out EP's! ha ha So glad you're Exercising your Funny Bone!
Thanks Trudge for stopping by! Wish you would write a story about Instagram - I know zilch. Well, actually I read the small print & looks like there's a special nude clause that said "And that means you, Marilyn!
Thanks so much Margaret! I wash my hands of those Mags now that they parade celebrity kids - too creepy! But anything "Clooney" & I knock over all of the Tic Tacs!
