Paris Hilton, Gum and Cocaine are Two Very Different Things
You think cops are really going to believe you thought the white powdery stuff was gum?
You have to laugh at the stupidity of Paris Hilton, because if you don’t, you may just start weeping over the fact that a girl like her—who apparently doesn’t know the difference between cocaine and chewing gum—is more rich and famous than you.
When Las Vegas police searched the hotel heiress this past weekend after a traffic stop, a little bag of cocaine fell out of the purse she was carrying, which she claimed she borrowed from a friend. According to People, when the authorities asked Hilton what the little baggie of white powder was, an officer recorded that, “She had not seen it but now thought it was gum.”
Are you bleeping kidding me?! Since when does gum come in powder form and in small clear plastic bags? That is the dumbest explanation we have ever heard. She might as well have said she thought it was a purple dinosaur, because that too, has absolutely zero resemblance to cocaine.
Paris should be punished just for thinking cops would be that gullible or struck by her “fame” to believe such a dumb explanation. And, given her smurk in her mugshot, we bet she was laughing hysterically as this all went down. “But officer,” (giggle, giggle), “that’s just gum. Here, do you want a sniff, I mean, piece?” (People)
Tell us: do you really believe Paris thought the cocaine was gum?
