The Beautiful People, the Beautiful People

I don't know why I waited so long to write about this. Utah's cutest kidnappee, Elizabeth Smart has been named one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People of 2005.

I loved the comments from the always-creepy Ed Smart:

"It's a nice thing to have happen to her at this time," said her father, Ed Smart. "She was, of course, surprised. It was great for her self-image."

Yep, high school can be rough and awkward. Especially if you are the only one in the class who has been kidnapped by a self-proclaimed prophet. Having the whole world see her on this list of beautiful people and ask "Why is she on here?" should do wonders for her self-image. Time to repress some more memories.

Let's not forget when Timmy O'Toole fell down the well on The Simpsons in 1992:

Homer: That Timmy is a real hero!
Lisa: How do you mean, Dad?
Homer: Well, he fell down a well, and... he can't get out.
Lisa: How does that make him a hero?
Homer: Well, that's more than you did!
