Two Of The Most Beautiful People On The Planet

Sharon rejoices at the news of Baby Jolie-Pitt's upcoming arrival. As she has said, she believes them to be two of the most beautiful people on Earth. Granted, they do look awfully nice through a camera lens and they've given piles o' cash and time to various trendy concerns.

But please excuse me if I don't celebrate their "beauty" with the rest of you. In my mind, beautiful people don't:

--Leave their spouses for someone else

--Lie repeatedly

--Refuse to be forgiving and make peace with their parents

There are all kinds of beauty, and unfortunately we celebrate this flashy stuff a lot in this country. It's a shame that eleven wheezing West Virginia coal miners can't be considered beautiful. This world doesn't see beauty in a man who puts his life on the line by descending repeatedly to the dark crust of earth to feed his family. This world doesn't see beauty in a man who perhaps gave up his last few minutes of air to save a younger man with small children to feed. That's not red carpet beauty, but it is sterling class.

Any troll looks beautiful when you have a team of 20 of the best-in-the-business working on you, plus perfect lighting, a personal trainer, and job that allows you to work 6o days a year.

Have you seen Pitt's acne scars? The Sierra Nevada's are smoother than that boy's face.

Ah yes, infidelity and adultry are so beautiful.

I made a similar post earlier but blogger wouldn't let me post it. It is so true. Beauty is just that, beauty. They are both getting older, with some plastic surgery they may keep a young and very strange look about them.

But it is nice when you can offshoot personal irresponsibility with world causes.

Amen, sistah. If I had access to the beautifying crap they do, I'd look like Nicole Kidman.
