You could say that Kim Kardashian and her K-crew are easy pickings for ridicule. This year, our fascination with the spoiled beauty reached a fever pitch. America watched as she married NBA player Kris Humphries, then continued to watch, in a mix of horror and delight, when they split up after some 70 days. You'd think that such a humiliating flameout would put to rest our interest for good, but it only continues, stronger than ever. Meanwhile, signs point to the possibility that Kardashian, or her family, or her managers, or someone at the helm of this circus, orchestrated the marriage as a publicity stunt (Humphries is now seeking an annulment on the grounds that Kardashian defrauded him). The worst part? None of that seems to matter to the audience.
