has discovered that a tribe in the Brazilian rain forest
have named their spears 'Britney'.
'Naked Foragers of Northern Brazil' who until 1998 had never
seen another human being, were so taken by Britney Spears'
song 'Oops I Did It Again' when it was played for them,
that they quickly learned the words, then the dance moves,
built a statue, worshipped it and then wondered what more
they could do to pay tribute to their goddess of dancy-pop.
tribe spokesman told us:
village elders met and decided that the highest honor
would be to name our shoes 'Britney'.
passed on that.
we considered naming our hats 'Britney'.
passed on that too.
our third choice was to name our spears 'Britney'. That
each time we kill an animal with one of our spears we
can say that Britney brought us luck."
rang a telephone number we believed was for a spokesman
for Britney Spears, but the person on the other end of the
line was unable to speak to us when we called because she
was completely drunk.
The Naked Foragers tribe had a television installed to watch
the MTV awards earlier this month and said they thought
Britney's performance was 'brilliant'. A number of pregnant
tribesmen have learned her dance which is proving a hit
in the village nightclubs and massage parlors.
