Beauty contests - a dissident view

I would bet that if all beauty pagents
disappeared overnight, most wouldn't even notice
they were gone.

A few careers have been launched in the case of
the winners.

I would bet that some group in Nigeria paid to
get a winner in the last Miss World so the
contest could come to their country. Sort of like
the Olympics, though on a much smaller scale.

Oh, and one more miscellaneous note. If anything,
rather than soccer, I'd say these pagents are
like professional boxing. Infrequent, totally
corrupt and almost totally worthless, and usually
not even entertaining (for me anyway).
