Paris Hilton to receive legitimate award

Based on the success of her perfume lines, Paris Hilton has been announced as the Celebrity of the Year Award by The Fragrance Foundation. She’ll be officially recognized at the 2009 FiFi Awards in May, according to Parlux Fragrances who will extend her contract another five years.

So help me out here, a committee of rational adults sat together in a room and decided Paris Hilton was worthy of international prestige and recognition? — Have these people actually met her? I mean, they know she’s not a cartoon character, right? Sure, the wonk-eye isn’t doing any favors, but that’s a human being up there. At least in the biological sense.
