Welcome to July dear readers.
Its time once again for fireworks, family and competitive eating.
And speaking of eating, how about a slice of cheesecake.
Say hello to Jessica Simpson and her patriotic bikini won't you?
Jess became our cheesecake this week by process of elimination.
I couldn't stomach the idea of using birthday girl/train wreck, Lindsey Lohan. Sure Eclipse opens this weekend, but let's be honest, Kristen Stewart looks like a surly 12 year old boy. Then there was the tangent where I considered Vivica A. Fox. I ultimately decided against that one as well (but the first person to post a comment as to why I went down that road will win a special prize. NO DAVID, YOU CAN'T WIN!).
Then I searched for images of celebrities in patriotic bikinis.
Jessica here was everywhere.
I really wasn't sure about using Jessica, but then I thought about it some more. What's a better way to celebrate the American Dream than Jessica Simpson? Like some bizarre Horatio Alger meets Judy Blume character, Jessica was the fourth or fifth most talented "singer" in her class, yet remains in our collective consciousness just for being her malapropping self.
Keep on living the dream Jess!
