Because the words "total retard" made me laugh out loud.

Britney Spears, in her attempt to make a come back, posted a letter to her fans on her website today. Along with a picture of herself both A) nude, and B) in a hideous wig because, hi, remember that time she cracked the Hell out and shaved her head? Exactly. In her letter, she wrote:

"The reason for this letter is to let everyone know that their prayers have truly helped me. I am so blessed that you care enough about me to be concerned and will continue to live in this brighter state with all of you by my side during this trying time. We are all lights of the world and we all need to continuously inspire others and look to the higher power. You are all in my prayers.


Love, Britney"

OK. Touching. Really, it is. However, my new favorite website ever - What Would Tyler Durden Do? - had this to say about Brit's moving words:

"The voices in Britney's head must be getting louder, because no one back here on earth thinks she's anything less than a total retard. And no one thinks she wrote this either. I'm sure it was cleaned up by her handlers, because her original was probably, 'Looka me everyone! I'm doin it! Yaaayyyyyy!' And then there was a drawing of a stick figure with long pretty hair in a fast car with a winking sun overhead giving a thumbs up, and the sun said, 'We love you Britney'"

And it made me laugh out loud. That might have something to do with the fact that the website so blatantly called her a total retard, or because I have the sense of humor of a 7-year-old, but nonetheless, I laughed. And don't you all feel better now?
