Not funny

Quote from front page of Slate:
LINE of the DAY
"The human need to anthropomorphize has made possible extended Hollywood careers for Lassie, Flipper, Willy of Free Willy, Babe, Mr. Ed, Benji, and Clint Eastwood's orangutans, just to name a few."
HOW TO WRITE A HIT ARTICLE
By Jack Shafer


For some reason I thought this was going to be a Joke, it had the perfect setup, but let down by not being a joke.

Here is my take:
The human need to anthropomorphize has made possible extended Hollywood careers for stars like, Lassie, Flipper, and Paris Hilton, just to name a few.

Of course saying Paris Hilton has had an extended Hollywood career might seem like a stretch, but for her longer than 5 minutes is extended.
Actually Paris just seems fun to bash, since I don't watch TV I have no idea what she is like, I just couldn't fill in the blank right now. I am sure someone will pop to mind later.
