Birthdays are a funny thing. Every year we each get one, but why? Is it a chance for others to rejoice in our existence? That somehow Earth became a better place when we were born?
The theory certainly seems logical. That is, until we spotted Heidi Montag celebrating her 22nd birthday Monday with lesser half Spencer Pratt in such an obnoxiously staged fashion (eating cake without utensils? come on!), that we were reminded that these two will do anything for a photo op, even tarnish a cherished tradition.
Hmm, come to think of it now, maybe birthdays are simply a way for us to celebrate having survived another 12 months of Speidi.
