Today in Misses

posted by on October 22 at 15:28 PM

So close to the crown and sash, yet forever so far away.

Five Thirty Eight says that the McCain campaign’s allegations that “the real Virginia” is Republican has pissed off Miss Virginia:

“What offended me and made me sad about those comments,” said Glakas, a resident for many years in northern Virginia, “is that I’ve been to every county, every part of this state. What’s best about Virginia is its diversity. The people, the geography. We have every class, every race, an amazing immigrant population… Virginia is the birthplace of America. To say that part of Virginia is not part of the real America is just offensive.”

In sadder Miss news, Miss Teen Louisiana was arrested for dining and dashing with a pocketful purse full of weed. She has been stripped of her crown.

"I'm Miss World, somebody kill me.

Kill me pills, no one cares, my friends, my friends..."

I think all we North Americans must be grateful for our ability to vote and chew gum at the same time.

Like, fer sure.

That tragic story about Miss Teen Louisiana illustrates why the position of runner-up is so important, and counts as executive experience.

I just realized that the young Sarah Palin bares a striking resemblence to Joyce DeWitt...

I think out of all Teens, I'd prefer to hang out with Miss Teen Lousiana.

Y on sais comme laisser les bons temps rouler. Alons a Lafayette!

Go Miss Teen LA!

Chew and screw.

Yeah, Chris @7 pretty much summed up our reaction around the office today. We were never so proud of our state.

@5: Too bad she's not as cool as Joyce DeWitt.

Looks like Marcy from Married with Children to me with that hair.

Who EVER thought it was ok to wear their hair that way? I mean, REALLY?

That's too bad about Ms. Evans. Though I'm for legalization, I do understand that her crown was awarded by an organisation that has its own rules, with which she voluntarily participated, and which--I'm gonna guess--specifically prohibits participants from having anything to do with pot. In which case she was the architect of her own demise.
