Using a scientific method we're not quite sober enough to wrap our heads around, Media Orchard has calculated a ranking of celebrities as determined by the number of times their photo has appeared in Us Weekly from August 1, 2005 through January 2, 2006. It's just the sort of useless data you never knew you wanted but, not knowing it's available, simply cannot live without:

1. Jessica Simpson (209 photos)
2. Jennifer Aniston (183)
3. Angelina Jolie (98)
4. Paris Hilton (95)
5. Nicole Richie (90)
6. Lindsay Lohan (89)
7. Brad Pitt (87)
8. Britney Spears (69)
9. Nick Lachey (61)
10. Katie Holmes (51)

Roughly translated for public relations relevance, this puts Jessica Simpson's publicist Rob Shuter, shady lady of Dan Klores Communications, in first place, with Aniston's man Stephen Huvane in second. Seeing as Jolie has no official publicist that we can seem to track down, that puts Paris Hilton's unfortunate flack Jack Ketsoyan in third place. Well done, boys!
