…and speaking of Scientology gossip…

Here’s an article claiming that Britney Spears is going to take crazy to a whole new level when she marries her current beau in a Scientologist wedding! First of all, okay, like most overblown celebrity gossip it’s probably not even true. But, ignore all that and just laugh with me as we read this snippet located halfway down the page:

Ah ha ha ha, it’s funny cuz it’s true!
