Lindsay Lohan mocks herself. So we don’t have to.

It’s a game attempt and it yields a couple of chuckles, but there’s something kind of sad about this. You can almost sense that Lohan knows it’s really not funny—-especially when the truth is so raw and borderline pathetic. A talented young actress has made an absolute wreck of her personal life, and she seems unable or unwilling to stop the bullshit, get some help and concentrate on her career and doing something more with her life beyond hitting the paparazzi-friendly joints and getting into public dustups.

Just because you’re in on the joke doesn’t mean people will stop laughing at you, or feeling sorry for you. I wish this kid would figure it out before the train goes completely off the tracks.

Not that she’s a kid any more.
