From the mouths of babes

People always say that kids really do say the darnedest things, even if Bill Cosby stole all of the thunder behind such a thought a few years back. And sometimes, when asked questions, children truly will give insights that adults should probably listen to. After all, most children haven't had the time to develop anywhere near as cynical and jaded of a world view (especially with regards to their fellow humans) as most adults, and can thus view events with a much more objective eye.

Which is exactly why we should listen to children when they start talking about compiling "Naughty or Nice" lists for Santa, and place celebrities accordingly. Especially when the two "naughtiest" on the list are Paris Hilton and Britney Spears.

That's right. One person who's famous for basically having been born into the right family and then sleeping her way even higher up the ladder, and another who started out as a miniature Disney princess, before having her own questionable sexual encounters and then proving that she has no business being a mother (or a driver, for that matter). In fact, when both names beat out perennial bad guys like Darth Vader and The Grinch (how can you be worse than someone who actually stole Christmas?), you just have to admire the clear vision that these kids brought to the survey.

The saddest part about all of this? There's a really good chance that both Spears and the Parisite will decide to latch onto this concept of "naughtiness", and use it to thrust themselves even further into a spotlight that should be no longer theirs. We can just picture Britney wearing a "sexy Santa outfit" (look for these next year at Halloween). And we can imagine that Paris would probably find time to make a video featuring her and some candy canes.

And don't even get us started on what the two would do to poor Rudolph...
