"A perfectly silly, genius idea" -- David Letterman

Monday, January 17, 2011


According to recently-discovered papers, shortly before his death in 1955 Albert Einstein formulated his ultimate theory.  He expressed it like this:

in which c is the camp value of the celebrity, a is the absurdity quotient of the juxtaposition, and b is the beautiful, brazen badness of the photograph.  

Crunching the numbers gives us what may be the highest-scoring CelebriGum images so far.

Thank you, Einstein... and thank you, Snooki.
