Paris Hilton

When I got to work this morning, a co-worker told me about Paris Hilton being released from prison. This is one of the funniest things I've heard in a long, long time. Apparently she was released for "medical reasons."

Mainly she stopped eating and was crying all of the time.

What was especially funny was a petition her lawyers filed in May with California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. What I found especially humorous was this little nugget (from People.com):

The petition, which had more than 900 signatures by Tuesday morning, urges the California actor-turned-governor to pardon Hilton because she provides "beauty and excitement to (most of) our otherwise mundane lives."

Oh dear God!

Update: Justice may yet be served. Apparently Paris is due in court Friday morning for a hearing that may put her back in jail and hold the sheriff in contempt for releasing her early!
