Alan Caruba, self-appointed arbiter of boredom, has once again assembled his annual list of people everyone wants to forget but can't. This year's "Most Boring Celebrities of the Year," as well as some runners-up, with commentary by the president of The Boring Institute: Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker. "Let's give these two the 'Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos Award for Dramatic Arts' because they not only can cry on cue but keep planning their comeback." Vanna White. "Even she can't figure out why anyone is interested, and we agree." Lt. Col. Oliver L. North. "The 'Joe Izusu of national security.' " The British Royal Family. "The most boring family in the world, thanks to the media. Di loves to dance; Charles likes to paint; Edward hates the marines; Fergie loves to fly; Andrew smiles a lot; Anne keeps falling off horses, and the queen must be heavily sedated these days." Donna Rice. "All we really know for sure is that she sat on Gary Hart's lap, but that's enough." Oral Roberts. "The next time Oral goes up in his prayer tower, will someone please lock the door." Max Headroom. "From the cover of Newsweek to Nobody-in-Particular with the click of a dial. G-g-g-goodby, Max, you c-c-c-computerized f-f-f-fruitcake!" Sean Penn and Madonna. "These kids give a whole new meaning to 'flash in the pan.' "
