There are very few people who have not heard of Kevin Federline and Britney Spears. As to whether this fact is a good thing or a bad thing is up to one's own interpretation. (It's a bad thing.) But with all that has been going on in the lives of these two very talented individuals, I thought that it would be worthwhile to periodically provide updates of the current rankings of the two. So, what follows are the current rankings between the two, with short explanations given for each. First place votes appear in parentheses.
Rankings for February 19, 2007
1. Kevin Federline (1) - In this poll, Federline assumes the number one ranking. In the recent past he has done very little that scratches the head in disbelief, and he even earns bonus points as he has not (apparently) done any concert performances in recent weeks. His cause was hurt potentially as he did aid Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company in the wasting of $2.6 million while appearing in Nationwide's Super Bowl advertisement, but these deleterious effects were mitigated by the fact that Federline was offered gainful employment by Taco Bell as a result. Kevin Federline's position at number one would be solidified if accepting, therefore establishing full time employment.
2. Britney Spears - Britney Spears takes the number two position in these two person rankings. It can only be surmised that Spears was not happy with all of the attention that a dead woman (Anna Nicole Smith) was receiving from the media, so she chose the perfect way to regain the spotlight for herself; she shaved her head. Oh, and did I mention that she also got two tattoos?! To her credit, exposing her bare head is perhaps preferable to some of the other skin exposures she had done lately. The question that is on way too many people's minds is why did she do this. I have the answer. Spears is following in the footsteps of such actresses as Demi Moore in G.I. Jane and Natalie Portman in V for Vendetta whose shaving of their heads was an essential part of the respective movie's plot line. Unfortunately for Spears, the cameras that were following her were not actual movie cameras, but paparazzi with nothing better to do with their time than stalk washed up pop stars. The bad news for Spears is that despite what she may have believed in her mind, she is not actually in a movie. The good news for Spears is that she may make a hefty sum of cash from selling the hair on eBay. The bad news for Spears is that this is not the type of full time employment that Federline's Taco Bell offer could be. As a result, Spears is firmly in place at number two in the rankings.
