So is the beach house half-full or half-empty? Have we said addio to an old evil or buon giorno to four new ones? Is there a philosopher in the house?
All's well that ends well
Yes! There's Oswald Spengler, who wrote in 1917's Decline of the West that Western civilization was at its nadir. Wrong!
Western civ, in fact, will hit bottom Sunday, on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, when Kim sees a doctor to have her bottom X-rayed. Why? Because said bottom is so globally admired that some haters have charged her with using hindquarter helpers. Butt buddies. Assists. Implants. The X-rays were sis Khloé's idea. Yes, we know. Dumber than a dead carp. It's reality TV.
All three K's go see the MD. Sis Kourtney, who sports breast implants, volunteers to have her pectoral bonus X-rayed so her artificial amplitude can be compared with Kim's bounteous backside. Kim's keister proves authentic. Kourtney blogs that the formation in question "is 100% real!!!"
