The client, a young woman of about 24, was talking about the fashions (and the hats, oh the hats!). Tongues were already wagging about Princess Beatrice's ridiculous chapeau. Here's how it happened:

Client: So I saw Fergie's daughters at the wedding.After a little more conversation about the hats, the conversation turned back to Fergie.
Sister: Oh yeah? I heard about their hats.
Client: Isn't Fergie too young to have kids that age?
Sister: I don't think so. She must be close to 50 by now.
Client: Really? Wow. She looks great for her age!
Sister: She really does. It must be Weight Watchers.
Client: What do you mean?
Sister: Oh, she used to advertise for Weight Watchers.
Client: I don't remember that.
Sister: Well, it was a few years ago.
Client: Wow. She has really been busy. I mean, when did she find time to sing with the Black Eyed Peas?
And that's how it happened, folks. How my sister met the biggest idiot in Washington, D.C. Kinda makes you fear for our future, doesn't it? She went on to explain to her client the difference between Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York and Stacy Ferguson, the singer who peed in her pants during a concert. Then again, I'd pay good money to see Sarah Ferguson do a lavish musical number with the Black Eyed Peas wouldn't you?
