PAPER USES STOKKE PIECE TO HAWK HER PHOTO FOR $215: Allison Stokke and her lawyer father Al (a noble defender of our best and brightest), have this week set a record for becoming colossal bores faster than any other public figures in human history.
Amazingly, there’s now nothing left to write about those empty vessels - now that the two attention mongers have willingly saddled up on the electronic media circuit (here’s hoping Al can milk the “unwanted” publicity to land a permanent talking head spot on Court TV!).
All that’s left for us is this one last example of the stifling hypocrisy of the dinosaur media pandering to Allison Stokke’s fake victimhood: In an ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER story today about Stokke headlined “Unwanted Attention”, the newspaper’s website posts three photos of Stokke and gives readers the option to buy the photos of the pole vaulter for as much as $215 each (in framed, decorative mahogany)!
And it only gets better. Thanks to the OC Register you can also get a Stokke image on a mug ($16.95), Christmas ornament ($18.95) and (for that one-handed, web surfing Stokke stalker in your life), a mousepad ($14.95).
OK, I’m done now.
