Ah, the life of Kim Kardashian.
For doing nothing at all, the large breasted reality star can always make headlines; whether she's being berated by the morons at PETA, or making gobs of money for standing in a store in Australia.
First, Kim started her week by Tweeting a random photograph of herself - and her giant left boob - holding up a cat. For what purpose? Probably because she knew PETA would react and the incident would paint Kim in a sympathetic light.
After all, she may be useless - but what individual in his/her right mind would ever side with an organization that cares more about attention that about saving animals?
On cue, PETA released a statement about Kim's dastardly actions: "Kim Kardashian isn't the only person who mistakenly thinks that because a mother cat picks up her kittens by the scruff of the neck that a supportive hand under the rump isn't needed."
Fair enough. But is Kim the only person who has starred in a sex tape with Ray J to have done so? **
Meanwhile, Kardashian isn't letting this flap get in the way of her professional life. She's was in Sydney, Australia over the weekend, promoting a new Motorola phone and doing her job as mobile phone ambassador.
Seriously. That's a job. Kim is being paid to stand around, hold a phone and give it her blessing. Guess we should be grateful this product won't mess with the self-image of girls around the world.

** Editor's Note: This joke narrowly edged out the following when it came to Kim mockery: "Speaking of support under the rump... Ray J really gave it to Kim from behind during their popular sex tape!"
** UPDATE: The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals L.A. has chimed in and said: "It is permissible to hold a kitten by his or her scruff for a brief amount of time... [but] the manner in which Ms. Kardashain is holding the kitten could lead others to mishandle animals."
We'll update this post again when President Obama speaks on the controversy.
