Lindsay Monroe

If you want some cheap amusement, check out the comments section of any site that's talking about how New York Magazine got Lindsay Lohan to strip down and pretend to be Marilyn Monroe. There, amongst the vitriol about how this decade's mildly talented sex symbol is way lamer than that decade's mildly talented sex symbol, you'll find lots of snarky comments about Lohan's surprisingly un-bodacious body:

Here's a start:

E! Online
She's kind of like a cross between Popeye's Olive Oil and the creatures from the Island of the Goons.

Perez Hilton
She looks like a dude

San Francisco Chronicle
Wait, is she supposed to be doing Marilyn Monroe or Marilyn Manson?

Defamer
Great. She's got breasts. Now, lets work on some hips.

TMZ
Dear Lindsay,
Your nipples look like salami.

OK, that's enough for now. But for someone who never thought to imbue much meaning to Bert Stern's photographs of Marilyn Monroe taken shortly before her death, the outrage over their re-creation—with Lohan standing in for the late beauty queen—is downright weird. I wonder, does that say more about the way people feel about Lohan or about Monroe?
