Katy Perry is an awesome girlfriend

Katy Perry Russell Brand at LAX earlier this year

Wow, a trip to space definitely beats the sweater my girlfriend got me for my last birthday. I wonder if Russell Brand wants to switch? . . . I mean girlfriends. From the Daily Mail:

It must be difficult to think of the perfect present for the man who has everything. So, instead of spending weeks pondering over which suit or aftershave to buy fiancé Russell Brand for his birthday, Katy Perry decided to go for something completely unique and spent a staggering $200,000 on a ticket to space for the comedian. Brand will have to undergo three days of intense training before he can go on his Virgin Galactic mission, which will see him travel 365,000ft into the atmosphere.

Virgin Galactic representative Louella Faria said: “It is true. We are very excited to have him onboard.There will be 17-inch diameter windows to look out onto. Passengers will be able to view Earth around 800 miles in any direction from space.”

For the sake of humanity, let’s just hope Russell’s $200,000 ticket into space is one-way. In all seriousness, how is someone in his physical condition supposed to survive “three days of intense training?” The guy looks like he’s about as strong as Betty White. Actually, I’d rather have Betty on my side in a bar brawl. Bitch fights dirty.
