Message: I Care About Margaret Cho

Thanks for all the Cho-tips. I've got the main story on Yahoo now. I'm trying to think of something to do with the story.

Nick points me in a potentially fruitful direction -- she's releasing a "rap CD" on "health and nutrition" -- but if that picture on Drudge really is Cho, I might have to lay off the Cho-is-fat jokes.

OTOH, Vapid Vamp Wonkette seems to think it's not Cho, and castigates Drudge for posting a picture of one Asian in place of another.

I don't know. Compare:

The first picture says, "Love you long time." The second says, "It puts the lotion in the basket."

Either that first pic isn't Cho or else she should marry that photographer and never be fifteen feet away from him for the rest of her life.

Update: Ryan tips that Wonkette has reversed herself:

We mocked Drudge, and now we have to give him the mad props for creative photo editing. Because this is Margaret Cho. We're guessing this 'undated' photo is from her anorexic pill-head days. We like her better now.

I should have known better than to rely on Wonkette. What could I have been thinking?

Rocketeer adds in the comments that this could just be a photography trick. Something about an 18mm lens. I have no idea what he's talking about, but it sounds good to me.

Another Correction: Johnny Catbird points out Cho's "book" isn't a book, but a "rap CD" on "health and nutrition." My apologies.

I read "rap CD on health and nutrition" but my brain just couldn't process such ridiculousness.
