Report: 47% Of Satellites Currently Monitoring Celebrity Parenting (http://www.theonion.com/content/node/50877)

Just days after the launch of SURI-II, whose state-of-the-art instruments are expected to provide the first-ever infrared images of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' infant daughter, a report published by NASA revealed that nearly half of all communications and reconnaissance satellites currently in orbit are engaged in collecting and transmitting data relating to the child-rearing practices of Hollywood stars.

According to Monday's report, the SURI-II is one of 73 celebrity-surveying satellites currently deployed by the U.S. and assigned a variety of tasks including analyzing the rising levels of hostility between new mother Britney Spears and husband Kevin Federline, calculating the long-term effects of Julia Roberts' decision to bottle-feed her twins, and tracking the ever-changing whereabouts of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

Bleh. I just don't like that woman. (I don't think she's particularly attractive, either.)

I love TheOnion.

Outfitted with sensitive spectrometers that measure pregnant Academy Award-winners' mean glow-radiance (MGR) and equipped with advanced imaging and optoelectronic devices capable of detecting possible "baby bumps" from 13,000 miles above the earth's surface

If only it were true. 1% of the money spent on The National Enquirer and People could probably double the NASA budget. :(

She gets huge bonus points for effective use of celebrity. She's got her pet cause, and she does appear to have a knack for aiming her starpower in the right places. Having her last baby in Namibia could be considered something of a masterstroke for manipulating the spotlight trying to manipulate her.

Physically, she's not an archetypical beauty. Her face is an aquired taste, but as a head to toe package, she's definitely breast of show...eh...head and shoulders above the breast...gah...you know what I mean.
