The news media has finally found a word to describe the famous-for-being-rich-and-famous Paris Hilton types: celebutante.  Actually, it looks as though I’m a little behind the times: Wikipedia already has an entry (of course).  And also a disturbingly long and detailed entry on Paris Hilton herself, which shatters some of my preconceptions about the average Wikipedia author.  Anyway, isn’t the English language a wonderful thing?

    “Celebutante”! Perfect. That’s a word that stands right up in the pantheon with “Infomercial”.
