there is some kind of metaphor here..... hmmm on the world stage the usa has fallen on its ass on the greasy oil of iraq, perhaps?
either that or pageant contestants can't smile and walk at the same time
(cue angry feminists/pageant-loving sloggers)

She's a indian girl.country girl. she's not into all that walkin in highheels. when are men and women going to realize those things are dangerous. They may look exotic, but thats a misconception. Thats western mans influence. That girl was still beutiful before and after the fall.

and yet she still ended up in the top five finalists. Isn't that odd?

Recovery from falling on her ass in front of the world or not, she still fell on her fucking ass and 9 other women didn't and she still ended up in the top 5.

Hmmmm...who is the producer of this event...is it an American event? Hmmmm...is it Donald Trump??

yes it is. America can do no wrong.

So dang felicitous that our (American) girl falls flat on her ass and then grins like the shit didn't happen. America, ladies and gentlemen, let's give it up.

On a personal level, of course I feel really, really bad for her. That has to be one hell of a way to end your pageant career.

And then she was booed. I say it's George W. Bush's fault Miss USA was booed!

Is it just me, or does David Schmader look like Charlie Brown?

that's some serious side-boob she was showing.

Sam @ 7: When did the boos come?? I'm imagining right after Miss USA was announced as a top-five finalist. Spinning of that imaginary scenario, I envision some cloak-and-dagger stipulation that Miss USA must make the top five, simply to make sure the American audience sticks it out to the end of the broadcast, and American advertisers get their money's worth. Normally, honoring this stipulation wouldn't be a problemówith the generic standards of beauty apllied to such pageants, all Miss USA has to do to earn her place in the top five is not fall on her ass. BUT SHE DID, and when she still qualified for the top five, the ruse was exposed, and boos were unleashed.

Oh dear God, I just spent two minutes fleshing out a Miss Universe conspiracy theory....is this what it means to be childless?

Poe @ 8: This is the first time I've heard of a Charlie Brown resemblance. (Fred MacMurray and Mikey from the Life cereal box are the long-standing comparisons.) Unless you're talking about my soul. My soul is identical to Charlie Brown's.

Patrick @ 6: I think "ass over tea kettle" (a wonderful phrase) requires some sort of somersault.

I want my $ back!

More schadenfreude please!

That just didn't live up to expectations...

Did the subject line get your hopes up about her intestines exploding or something?

i thought some extremist human rights group would have lobbied to outlaw these contests by now. its judging physical beauty of a person that was created beautiful in the first place. big deal.

*In his best white sports caster from ESPN* ! She goes down in her evening gown!

David Schmader: Yes, the boos came when Miss USA made the final 5 and Miss Mexico did not. As for why they booed, I can't compete with your fully fleshed-out theory!

I can't believe how quickly she recovered from that fall. She gets my vote.

The weird part is she looks EXACTLY like the previous girl. Maybe it's a contest for...clones? Hmm??
