the other Paris Hilton tape: cow milking and “1/2 price anal salty weiner bugers.”
In the middle of a grainy tape, Paris Hilton exclaims, “I’m never drinking milk again.” In another clip, after seeing what Paris has wrought, a woman exclaims, “That seriously is not funny. People are going to see that and freak out.” Okay, so it’s not that tape featuring Paris Hilton. But three clips from her forthcoming FOX reality TV show The Simple Life are grainier, leave more to the imagination, and are full of fun double entendre. Watch Paris milk a cow and pledge never to eat meat again, and watch as she and Nicole Richie advertise for “1/2 price anal salty weiner bugers” [sic] on the marquee of the Sonic drive-through’s sign, which prompts a reaction from their manager. The two also play with roadkill in another clip. In the New York Daily News, David Bianculli says the first two episodes, which air the first week in December, have “definitely been worth the wait.”
