Further evidence of the impending fall of our civilization. Here’s how Paris Hilton makes some of her money:

I get paid $500,000 to go to Las Vegas or Japan and wave at crowds or go to a party. All the time. Only this week I met a family at the airport who wanted me to drop in to their daughter’s 16th birthday party for $100,000. Because I’m her idol. So I will. I’ll take her a present, though.

Bringing her a present. That’s a sweet touch, Paris.
