many bells down


Yahoo! News makes me giggle

Yahoo! News never fails to amuse me.

First there was that whole “Denver’s in the superbowl” front page they ran, and now this!

This morning, news (if you can call it that) broke that American Idol contestant Becky O’Donahue (an Irish girl after my own heart! Loves her already) posed with her twin sister Jessie two years ago for Maxim online.  Yahoo! News has this featured not once, not twice, but three times on its entertainment page, each time accompanied by a different picture:

There are a number of problems with this photo.  For example:
– This guy isn’t a sexy female.  Or sexy, period.
– He doesn’t have a twin.
– I don’t even think he’s associated with American Idol anymore.  Isn’t this the Brian guy they fired after the first season because his jokes – and his hair (which just couldn’t compete with the highlighted masterpiece that is Seacrest’s ‘do) – really, really sucked?

I’m pretty sure this is Carrie Underwood.  I’m also pretty sure that whatever she’s doing in that photo (linedancing, perhaps? Or asking a truck driver to toot his horn?), no sexy pose was struck that day.

Ahh…now they finally get it right.  Which one’s Becky?  Anybody know?  I sure hope she’s the one suggestively fondling the bat!

I wonder if this will have any negative reprecussions for whichever “sexy twin” dared pose for Maxim magazine in a towel.  Remember when Frenchie Davis got kicked off for ::gasp:: modeling lingere for a website?  Now she’s a featured soloist in Broadway’s Rent, so I guess it all worked out for the best.
