Paris Hilton: OWNED!

This is a fantastic day in the world of celebrity blogging. Here's what happened, courtesy of WWTDD:

Last September, the story broke that guerilla graffiti artist Banksy had smuggled 500 doctored copies of Paris Hilton's debut album into stores throughout the UK, where they sold without anyone knowing they were fake. He replaced the liner notes with pictures of Paris naked and others with her face replaced by a dog. The song titles were changed to a list of questions, including "Why am I famous?", "What have I done?" and "What am I for?" He even replaced the actual music with 40 minutes of Paris saying "that's hot" over and over and over to a basic beat. And now another artist has struck out at Paris, this time an artist named Vinchen, who has replaced several pictures inside the Columbus, Ohio Hilton with the image you see above (unedited versions HERE and HERE).

That really is an inspired piece of genius. I wonder how long those remained before they were noticed and removed?

Good stuff, for sure; only to be topped by PaHi being carted off to the LA County slam for her 90-day jail sentance for probation violation. When is this supposed to occur? I am waiting for the blog post of PaHi wearing an orange bag while scrubbing prison house shitters.
