Mystery Twitter Pic: It Wasn't Posted By Kanye West, & It's Not Kim Kardashian

By Robert Paul Reyes

"There`s been a crack in the case of the supposed Kim Kardashian booty shot. TMZ got to the bottom of things and revealed it as a cheeky prank.

The Twittersphere has been lit up for hours over this photo, supposedly of Kardashian, supposedly posted by her current boo Kanye West.


Except it`s not her, and he didn`t tweet it."


My props to Atlanta Constitution writer Jennifer Brett, for realizing that you can use any subject, even Kim Kardasian`s alleged butt to make a comment about the human condition. I find some of my best ideas for essays in the weird news section of Yahoo News.

TMZ is the Bible of celebrity gossip, and you will end up making an ass out of yourself if you dare contradict the celebrated Web site.

This incident illustrates our obsession with celebrities, we care more about the state of Kim`s rear end than we do the intractable problems that we face: The economy, the rising cost of gasoline... There is a lot more bandwidth devoted to the shenanigans of celebs than there is to the tragedy that`s taking place in Syria.

Mystery solved, the woman in the booty pic isn`t Kim Kardashian and Kanye West didn`t post the image. Now we can move on to weightier matters: Is Snooki going to televise the birth of her son?
