Two things I never thought I would’ve heard mentioned in tandem: “Paris Hilton” and “Oxford.” Hilton, it seems, has made the latest edition of the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, a 65-year old compendium of humanity’s wit and wisdom. So, if you’re keeping score, it goes like this: Gandhi, Confucius, Shakespeare, and…Hilton. The worst part is her entry is so lame: “Dress cute wherever you go, life is too short to blend in.” If you take out the part that isn’t a complete and well-trafficked cliché, all you’re left with is “dress cute.”
“So cool I have a quote in the dictionary,” Hilton tweeted approvingly. Will she get credit for “so cool” now too? What do you think — Paris Hilton, a notable quotable?
