Question of the Day


Anybody have any clout with Trouble Helmsley? I'm available for dog-walkin' and poop-scoopin'. $12 million. Yowser!

I'll bet her brother just found 12million reasons that "Trouble" will probably not live much past seven doggy years.
Be afraid, Trouble, be VERY afraid!
Oh yeah, Sis, I really, really love Bailey!
Bro.

Well, doggone!!

Bro - not to mention the two grandkids left out of the will. Yep. I suspect Trouble's due for cement overshoes and the East River!

Chris - why are the richest people also the stupidest? No matter how much you love an animal, $12 million just doesn't mean that much to a pooch.

Errr... What?

After educating you about Amy Winehouse this week, I think we deserve to be told: "Who is that person with the dog and what have they done?" I can't even tell if it's a man or a woman, though I'm sure the pink Chanel-ish suit should be a giveaway...

Gee, PT, how to describe Leona Helmsley. Brooklyn girl (yeah, she does look like a man) becomes major real estate mogul, marries an even bigger mogul, and becomes famous by being both rich and mean. There are still Helmsley condos and hotels throughout NYC. She went to prison for tax evasion, I think, back in the 1980s and is famous for saying "Only the little people pay taxes." Anyway, she died last week and left $12 million to her dog, Trouble. Think of how many "little people" that $12 mil would've made happy? Though to be fair, she left a huge charitable trust, as well (much more than $12 million).

Merci beaucoup!

I shall now be writing a nice begging letter to Trouble.

Mind you - $12m. It's only £6m isn't it. Hardly worth it!!!

So you don't want me to send you your cut, PT?

PT said...

Oh, well. If you must!
