Miss Universe

It's strange for me to be living somewhere where the Miss Universe contestant is in the newspaper for weeks leading up to the pageant. Or where more people than not seemed to watch the show last night.

Beauty pageants are stupid. They're like dog shows with really attractive women instead of dogs. And the idea that the fact that the contestants have to answer some sort of question makes the whole thing less stupid is, well, also stupid.

According to the internet, the winning final question answer, in response to a question about unsupervised internet usage, (provided by Miss Mexico via translator) was:

I do believe that Internet is an indispensable, necessary tool for the present time. We must be sure to teach them the values that we learned as a family.

Not exactly high discourse.

Whatever. That Guatemalan chick is pretty hot.

I reckon dog shows are better. And speaking of dog shows, I highly recommend "Best in Show".

Best in Show is a great movie indeed.

The fact that beauty pageants have failed to inspire a movie of similar quality is another black mark against the industry.
