You May Call Me “Beautiful Creature”

Sweet, isn’t it? Not everyone thought so:


Steve Martin ended up taking the post down, because it was so controversial.

Seriously?

You can read the whole story here.

I would just like to put it out there right now: When I die, you may describe me as a beautiful creature. I would not mind that at all, and not only because I would be dead. I wouldn’t mind being called that whilst alive. Also, you may call me a:

  1. Sexy Goddess
  2. Attractive Acrobat
  3. Pretty Pundit
  4. Handsome Brute
  5. Good-looking Varmint
  6. Alluring Animal
  7. Pre-possessing Pest
  8. Lovely Lady
  9. Arresting Wretch
  10. Stunning Imp
  11. Exquisite Rascal

I hope I’m not being anti-feminist. I just think we have bigger fish to fry than this. Actually, I think it hurts our cause to be offended by someone’s honest compliment. Let’s move on and let the princess Rest In Peace. After all, she drowned in moonlight, strangled by her own bra- hasn’t she been through enough?
