[an inside photo reportedly has Paris' head replaced by a dog's] A sticker promises such hits as Why Am I Famous? and What Have I Done?, while each page of the booklet is illuminated by an ironic slogan. [The cds were replaced by CDRs with remixes of Paris interviews and is credited to DM, some are speculating that it could be Danger Mouse.
