It’s official. Something has eroded the mechanism in Lindsay Lohan‘s brain that distinguishes a funny joke from an extremely uncomfortable, please-hold-me-now-I-can’t-handle-this stab at humour.
Fresh off her impending sentence for “lockdown rehab” – a mythical place that only exists in the fables of Lindsay’s elf-lawyer, Mark Heller – the actress has taken some time from her busy pre-rehab schedule of partying her face off to tweet an April Fools Day joke to her adoring morbidly curious public.
“It’s official. Pregnant…” was a sentence she typed and pressed enter on April 2 because she can’t even show up on time for her own April Fools Day jokes.
Naturally, more than a few people thought she may be serious because… April 2. But at this point it’s probably safe to say no viable life form could survive in her body in its current condition. Which is precisely what makes Lindsay’s “joke” so deeply unsettling. Yes, let’s joke about potential life form born into all sorts of physical and environmental problems. Hysterical!
Given that Lindsay constantly complains about all the negative attention and backlash she gets from the press, you’d think she’d avoid bear-baiting them. But that would require some kind of mature, restrained thought process followed by a similar course of action. You know. The kind that would keep her from spending her life hanging out in courtrooms instead of movie sets.
Until then, may this tweet only exist in joke form, no matter how terrible that joke may be.
