Ricky Gervais, the salty Britcomedian and creator of The Office, asked President Barack Obama to exchange Posh Spice for Paris Hilton. He wrote an open letter to the President on his hilarious blog, beginning with a little bit of buttering up:
You seem to be a man of grace and integrity, who would never shirk responsibility in any way.
He then gets right to the point, explaining that he isn't very happy about the reality show Paris Hilton's British Best Friend being filmed in his neck of the woods:
It has come to my attention that (Paris) has bought a house in North London a few miles from me, and is out and about ingratiating herself with the Great British public This is clearly a retaliatory strike for Posh Spice moving to LA. I know it, and you know it, so let's cut the "it's a free country" nonsense and come to some agreement.
Gervais then proposes a covert operation to trick both Posh and Paris into going to New York, where they'll use paparazzi as bait to trick the ladies into going back to their respective homes of Beverly Hills and Great Britain.
The thought of that many photographers in one place will be irresistible. Once we get them there, while they are having their photos taken (we will have hire a few guys with cameras to make it look good) we will swap their limos around. It's fool proof.
Now if only Gervais can get the President to devise a way to get Gwyneth back in exchange for Heather Mills, the world will be a better place.
