Much fun has been made on the Internets about the stupid answer of Miss South Carolina at the 2007 Miss Teen America Beauty Contest. She was asked to explain why one fifth of young Americans cannot find the US on a world map and she said: ...uh.. uh...umm.. I'd better let her answer herself. [The subtitles are necessary, believe me.]
Before you start pointing at her and laugh, consider this Miss Vietnam beauty contest where the questions to the contestants and their answers are just as inane. No, there is no translation, but trust me, those girls are no Einsteins (duh! they're cuter).
So you see, stupidity is not caused only by blondiness. I guess the whole purpose of beauty contests is to make us uglies feel better about ourselves.
But then again, it's not just beauty pageants contestants who are dumb and inarticulate...
