Cheap frills: Madonna's African orphan in tartan and lace.

If it wasn't bad enough that Madonna swanned into Malawi, tossed a few coins of her vast fortune at some orphanage, and then made off with a little boy she'd chosen from a photograph, now we have to contend with pictures of dear little David dressed up like little Lord Fauntleroy in tartan and lace. This picture, from the Daily Mail, shows the child arriving with his nanny - note the matching hat - at David Ritchie's 40th birthday party. Link.

But no worries that Madonna is going to deprive little David of getting in touch with his African roots. According to a report in Der Spiegel, after David was rescued by St. Madge he was ' whisked away to a waiting airplane and jetted off to civilization, to swinging London and Los Angeles, and into a "Safari room" filled with African kitsch from the fashionable Los Angeles children's furniture store Petit Trésor.

'David's new room alone is said to have cost the proud mother €22,000. Mr. Banda [the boy's biological father] could spend a lifetime working for that kind of money.'

Makes you want to puke, doesn't it?
