Beauty pageants are a source of perpetual laughter and fun. You just have to listen to the contestants answer the questions asked of them to know what I’m talking about.

A recent example: At the Miss Teen USA pageant, Miss South Carolina was asked:

Recent polls have shown a fifth of Americans can’t locate the US on a world map. Why do you think this is?

Her answer:

I can hadrly tpye, I’m laghuing so hard. For those who want a transcript:

“I personally believe that US Americans are unable to do so because uh, some people out there in our nation don’t have maps and uh, I believe that our education, like such as in South Africa and the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should, our education over here in the US should help the US, or, or should help South Africa, and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future for our children.”

And the say beauty and brains don’t go together!
