Now even by today's standards in this wacky world, this news rather stunned me - I had to read it twice:
JAIL-BOUND socialite Paris Hilton has urged fans to sign a petition to pardon her "mistake" because she "provides beauty and excitement to (most of) our otherwise mundane lives".
Hilton was ordered by a Los Angeles judge on Friday to report to a county jail by June 5 to serve a 45-day sentence for violating the terms of her probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case.
I have a better idea; how about supporting a Petition to KEEP her locked up!!
I think that would do us all a favour, don't you?
