Martha Stewart needs help naming her kitty

First, Martha Stewart demanded a piece of one of her Apprentice candidates’ sugar buns. Now, she wants us to help her name her kitty.

Martha actually has two pussy cats. However, she already named one Sirius. (Yes, product placement is out of control.)

Now she needs her audience’s help naming the other one. The choices are as follows, along with an explanation of each (as provided in a press release). I am not making these up:

  • Polaris, the North Star whose position in the sky never changes. When you face it, you are always facing North.
  • Electra, one of the four Pleiades stars that is classed as a giant.
  • Mira, a red giant.
  • Keira Knightley, one of the best and brightest stars working in movies today.

Sounds like someone wants a piece of Keira’s sugar bun.
