Heidi "Ho"

The Germans have given us many memorable figures throughout history: Ludwig van Beethoven, Kurt Weill, Karl Marx, Friedrich Nietzsche, Kraftwerk, Joseph Goebbels. And in this pantheon we now have Heidi Klum.

I was traveling on Delta the other week, and greeting me on the cover of their Sky magazine was Klum:

The story on her was insipid, as you may expect. But I got to thinking, what has she done to deserve this kind of attention? The woman appears on fashion magazine covers, parades around in a Victoria's Secrets bra, and then there's the idiotic reality show, Project Runway. And I want to read about this person while being cramped in a small space in coach?

Of course, you know what the editors of the Sky magazine were thinking. Klum has one major selling point:

Eye candy....sure. But it's a shame that someone with more substantive contributions to life wasn't the cover story. I guess that some things inflated and taken out of context just look good to some people.

To me it's just plain stupid.

Looks like a ad for tooth-whitening.

To be honest, I didn't read any of the text you put between the pictures

Psst... It's Victoria's Secret, not Victoria's SecretS.
