Paris Hilton is real

I was completely and utterly convinced that the Metro had printed a picture of heiress and celebrity jailbird Paris Hilton's waxwork by accident today.

The skin is so obviously plastic, the teeth too shiny, the pose fixed and awkward, and the eyes glazed and pointing in different directions.

Then I searched AP's image library and found that it was taken at the opening of a Budapest department store which, as far as I can tell, she attended in person.

Sorry, Paris.

And congratulations on your entry into the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations for the immortal and timeless line: "Dress cute wherever you go, life is too short to blend in."
