Today has been a real downer of a news day, and here at Evil Beet, we're gonna go to our happy place. Our happy place, of course, is wherever someone is making a total ass of Paris Hilton.
Right now, that place is Sir Richard Branson's Oxfordshire estate in the UK, where he threw a fantastically expensive 21st birthday party for his son Sam. The theme was "Mad Hatter." Don't try too hard to understand why "Mad Hatter" is in any way an appropriate theme for a 21st birthday, just keep telling yourself they're British.
The Bransons invited Paris Hilton, who wanted to come dressed as Alice in Wonderland, the pill-popping star of any Mad Hatter-themed party. When Branson found out, he secretly saw to it that all 60 waitresses at the party were also dressed as Alice, and when Paris arrived, he pretended to mistake her for a member of the wait staff and asked her for a drink.
Thank you, Paris, for providing a small bright spot in an otherwise gloomy day.
