More Signs Of The End Times

Martha Stewart's prison nickname was "M. Diddy". Lord, take me now.

More Martha Madness:

Asked about the electronic monitoring bracelet she must wear on her ankle,— she has complained repeatedly that it irritates her skin. — Stewart says she knows how to remove it.

"I watched them put it on. You can figure out how to get it off," the magazine quotes her as saying. "It's on the Internet. I looked it up."

Her publicist's eyes "widened with alarm" when Stewart made the remark. The article did not say whether Stewart claimed ever to have actually taken the bracelet off.

Stone-cold house arrest gangsta, yo. I have to like anything that makes a publicist panic.

She tells the magazine her version of "Apprentice" will be different than Donald Trump's, and that she does not want to be portrayed as mean and harsh. She says she would never use the catchphrase "You're fired."

"We are trying to come up with other ways to say it," she says. "For instance, if someone is from Idaho, I could say, 'You're back in Boise for apple-picking time.' "

I'm not sure that Regional Festivities thing is going to catch on, but I have to concede that "We've decided to go in a different direction" would make a pretty piss-poor catchphrase.

You're back in Boise for apple-picking time!

That's worse than "you're fired." Sheesh, even more humiliating than a pink slip is a pink slip handprinted on parchment with a little lace border, smelling of jasmine.

"Early retirement. Now that's a good thing!"

I don't believe she would have taken it off. I bet she does not want to end up back in jail.
