Damn, I'm Good

Tempted as we are here at VC to wallow in schadenfreude, it really doesn't sound like these folks have a case:

Deposed beauty queen Carrie Prejean still owes $5,200 for breast implants floated by pageant organizers in January, a new lawsuit claims.

Ex-Miss California Carrie Prejean stiffed pageant organizer K2 Productions even though she requested the surgery "to be more competitive" at the April 2009 Miss USA pageant and verbally agreed to repay the K2 loan, a complaint filed yesterday states.

Prejean was stripped of her crown June 10 for alleged contract violations.

If she really promised to repay this loan, she's morally obligated to keep her word.

Moral and legal obligations, however, are two separate matters. Only a fool** loans over $5000 on a verbal promise to repay. Given Ms. Prejean's track record with keeping her word thus far, I wouldn't be holding my breath if I were these folks.

Though maybe they can slap a lien on her breasts. Can breasts be repossessed?

** OK. Apparently I was indelicate in the way I phrased that. My opinion was based on the fact that the pageant is not a person who would normally be expected to have affection for Ms. Prejean, but a commercial enterprise. Sorry, but it still seems pretty foolish for a corporation or organization to loan money based on nothing more than a verbal promise.

After reading an article containing such turns of the phrase as, "breast implants floated by", right on through "an inflated sense of self" and finally seeing an appended poll titled, "Ex-Miss Cali's breast-implant flap", I'm filled with an inflated sense of snark, just busting to cleave towards the light.

Yet, racked though the article may leave me, discretion only firms my resolve. And so I say, no comment...

Don't look at me.

Hey, stop that!

Put me down...

I told you: Put.Me.Down!

NO TOUCHY, NO TOUCHY

Oops, That last comment was supposed to be from me: The 10 Foot Pole.

Don't see why not. In Exorcist II, Linda Blair got *entirely* repossessed...

Oh, I dunno bthun. I found the article uplifting - it definitely propped up my sagging spirits.

The sense of irony, however, is palpable. Keeping abreast of Ms. Prejean's exploits could be a full time occupation. My cup runneth over...

I don't think so. If I loan my brother $5,000 I didn't do so *based* on his verbal promise to pay (he may give it, but it's not the deciding factor). I do so because I thought he needed it and *if* he pays me back that's just gravy. If not, that's OK too.

Never loan money to friends and family. If you can afford to help them, give it to them. If they repay you, great. If not, it was a gift anyway and need not be repayed.

A bored BillT with a copy of Photoshop is a frightening thing, bthun.

How many years have you been threatening me w/ that photo?

Posted by: Cassandra at October 20, 2009 04:14 PM

Sounds like they got her by the bra straps.

How may years have you been getting Google-hits from Abu Dhabi?

Yanno....seems to me a Dark Lord could make a little *green* here. Or at the very least, a *few* beer chits 'On Account'.

Ummm...tit for tat?

Speaking of which, the rough draft for "Sherman's March to the Sea -- Through the Alps" is coming along nicely...

Well, at least no one can accuse the Company of an overabundance of maturity. :) Love ya guys!

Well, if it's anything like the timelines for getting toons done at the Castle, I guess I should start shopping around for another project *until then*.....

Camo, my gum landed on the screen. You, sir, are deadly with the double entendres. I would expect no less from a cunning linguist.

I see Miss Prejean going over the moat, in a manner reminiscent of BillT.

Those who know, know. If you need further enlightenment, visit the Castle and ready the party threads.
