One of the most interesting aspects of celebrity stories is what comes after — your hilarious, occasionally rant-y and generally colorful responses to what's happening in the world of celebrity news. Here are a couple of the stories that you had strong reactions to this week, as demonstrated by (what else?) animated GIFs:
Yes, her 18th birthday -- most of you were like:
...and many insinuated her purported age was approximately as real as her boobs. It seems we've got another birther movement on our hands.
Courtney had a defender in Samloyal23 though: “Wow, so many haters here. Yeah, she may have made a questionable decision marrying an older man, I think her parents should have nipped that in the bud, but putting down her looks is just wrong. She is a beautiful girl with a lot of style who has dreamed of being a model since she was a kid. So what? Get off her back...”
Pretty much everyone else fell into these various groups:
MsNRAGirl: “That is a car that has been driven many miles.”
nbptmom: “Awww...she doesn't look a day younger than 38...”
Noaxe397: “Boobs on a stick. Perfect!”
Tendril: “She's 18! Her age and IQ have finally caught up with one another.”
Perhaps havjulia summed it up best: “Shouldn't this article be under Weird News?”
2. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce told Kim Kardashian that if she ever wants a star on the Walk of Fame, she needs to seriously consider locking down an actual acting job first.
At the thought of Kim K.'s Walk of Fame ambitions, the entire comment section basically looked like this:
True to their username, whowhatwhywherewhen had a question: “You know how they have a camera, film, tv, record in the middle of the star by the person's name to represent what the star did in the business?...what would hers be? A sex toy?”
Others proposed compromises:
dt1064: “Maybe they could paint her name on a rock in an alley nearby.”
hoofus42: “Can't they do a compromise? Spray-paint her name on one of the sewer grates in the middle of the street?”
Reading the comments, it seems pretty much all of you were sitting at your computers doing this:
Several of you appeared to find religion in response to the news, including Stacknef: “So there is a God....”
There was also cautious optimism...
Natalie Y: “Please let the kardashians show be next PLEASE!!”
Jezoebel: “Gym. Tan. Cancelled.”
Spongeworthy06: “I miss the MTV of the 80s.”
And pure unadulterated joy:
RadicalAmerica: “Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!!

Whoever Jersey Shores' fans and/or hate-watchers are, they don't appear to be among you all (or at least, aren't willing to admit it). But here's one last fist pump for the road anyway:
