I already made a magician’s assistant joke today with regard to Taylor Momsen. Now I wish I’d saved it:

As unusual and pretty as some aspects of this gown are, I can’t help expecting Natalie to go up on-stage in Vegas with Lance Burton, Master Magician, and allow herself to be sawn in half, while he hypnotizes her into thinking she’s a rooster-sheep hybrid and then makes her appear on the top of the Paris casino’s Eiffel Tower. At least she wins in the comparison with Momsen. If you’re going to look like an illusionist’s concubine, at least make it an expensive illusionist.
