An Epidemic! A kinda-not-so-scientific study of the celebrity "exhaustion" epidemic, from the NY Observer: There was no discernible difference in recovery time for patients who smoked and had sex with visitors (19.9 percent), but fatigue levels remained consistently high in patients who drank large amounts of wine and cried more than four hours per day (22.3 percent). Poor little Lindsay Lohan, working herself into the hospital--a modern-day little match girl, no?

Lindsay fights fatigue the old fashioned way: a purseful of pure Peruvian powder.

Ah, those halcyon daze of Cocaine in Hollywood are getting trendy again...or maybe it never left?

These poor, poor, poor people, whoever is forcing them to work too hard, party too hard and crash too hard should stop.

Oh, what's that? These people have millions of dollars and are doing it to themselves?

Well then, just don't kill anyone else as you flame out.

I think the "article" is a joke. If not, it should be.

Cocaine never went away, but somehow, it's back with a vengeance... at least in my sleepy little burg. It's like it's snowing here year-round.

Speaking of the party people, these 24-hour party people might be able to offer some advice on the slow lane in the fast life. (Salon.com link, sorry)

Um...I think davy is right...

Anybody feeling a little "Onioned" at the moment?

And the reference to Carrottop as a "tired" celebrity was priceless.

Here's hoping that the list of casualties is a long one!

Wow, anyone reading this and not grasping immediately that it is satire better get a humor check-up STAT!

My favorite part: "Try that and you’ll wish you were Earl Holliman." For the rest of the day, I am going to wish I was Earl Holliman-- in fact, I may make December 11 the official "I Wish I Was Earl Holliman" Holiday.

*Makes note in calendar.

Lindsay Lohan will be starring in Herbie: Fully Loaded.

Makes sense, no?
