Change For The Worse

If you've been following the news, you know that Bruce Jenner, former Olympian (gold medal winner in the 1976 decathlon) and Kim Kardashian's stepfather, is 'transitioning' from being male to being female.
Sources close to Bruce Jenner’s family confirm to People magazine that the former Olympian is preparing to live life as a woman.

“Bruce is transitioning to a woman,” the source tells People.
From this...

... to this.

Far be it from me to make fun of someone who is searching for his true identity. But I would be remiss if I didn't note that he has recently been involved in a fatal traffic accident. There is some speculation that the crash was caused by Jenner's attempt to escape from paparazzi.
One person was killed today, and at least seven other people were injured, in a chain reaction, head-on crash in Malibu that may have been triggered by paparazzi chasing a celebrity.

Reality-TV star Bruce Jenner was quoted by tabloid news services as saying the deadly wreck followed a chase of his Cadillac Escalade by five paparazzi...
Truly a tragedy for all involved, and I don't mean to make light of it. However, given the gender-change aspect of the story, I have to admit I laughed out loud when I saw the following headline.

Bruce Jenner rear-ended cars in fatal wreck

Okay, perhaps that was insensitive of me. But my insensitivity pales in comparison to whoever came up with this.

I remember having a crush on Bruce Jenner when he was an Olympian back in 76. He kind of freaks me out now.

Bad, bad, bad, and it made me laugh.

BB, he had it all in '76. Winning a gold medal as the 'world's greatest athlete' during America's bicentennial. What the hell happened since then? I guess the Kardashians dragged him down.

WSF - It is funny, isn't it. You and I both have a sick sense of humor.
