Voyou Désœuvré

A day when the Spice Girls are rumored to be reforming seems like an appropriate time to mention my surprise that, according to Google, no-one has made the obvious “zig-a-zig objet petit a” joke. Or maybe ten years ago it didn’t occur to anyone to use a global computer network to disseminate such a mediocre gag.

In other Spice Girls news,  I was interested to find an article on Girl Power that says a lot of what I had vaguely imagined might go into a theory of Marxism-Britneyism.

    I see she’s already apologized, which is a bit disappointing. Particularly given that she bought the bag in China, she really should have issued a statement condemning the revisonism of the Shining Path and re-affirming her comittment to Marxism-Leninism-Mao Zedong thought.

    And it was a rather nice bag, too:

    Cameron Diaz's olive green bag carried the Maoist slogan, 'Serve the People'
