Slack-Jawed Yokels

The similarity between Cletus and Brandine of The Simpsons and the Beverly Hillbilly couple Britney Spears and Kevin Federline is obvious once you think about it. These pictures stand as incontrovertible proof that the apple doesn't fall far from the family tree (especially when it hardly branches):

Uncanny, no? I can barely tell which is which.

Britney with her topknot, cigarette and pockets spilling out from under her short-shorts; Kevin with his wifebeater, shoulder tattoo and awful facial hair: It's too perfect!

You can buy a Brandine action figure that comes with a pair of nasty boots, a bandanna and a tiny tee emblazoned with the slogan "Classy Lady." [Correction: It actually says "Classy Lassy," which is even trashier.] That sounds about right for Britney, except that she'd lose the boots lest she scuff up the gas station bathroom floor.

Britney may be trespassing on Cletus' dirt farm for now, but I suspect it won't be long before the Queen of Tween moves on to greener pastures.

Britney: Do you love me, Kevin?
Kevin: Nope, but I'll take them sacks of money from ya.
