miss usa crystle stewart wipes out.

Readers, here is something for your Monday morning. Enjoy! Even beauty queens have bad days…

As if the world couldn’t think America was any dumber, we were shamed at the Miss Universe pageant, the Olympics of Beauty, for the second year in a row. Here is what the UK’s Times Online had to say (why are Brits so much funnier even in their news ledes?!):

For the second year in succession, the American entrant in the Miss Universe pageant failed to meet the crucial challenge of walking and smiling at the same time.

Crystle Stewart, from Texas, tripped and fell on stage at the global beauty contest today, just as Miss USA did last year. She failed to make the final, which was won by Miss Venezuela, a former kidnap victim.

Failed to meet the crucial challenge of walking and smiling? HAHA. But seriously, don’t sweat it girl, because you weren’t going to beat a kidnap victim anyway. I mean, COME ON, that’s intense and she deserves to win. Here she is. Rawr.

And I know I said America was shamed earlier, but I was being sarcastic (shocker, I know). I can totally relate to Crystle because I take diggers all the time. So Crystle, I know that you are probably curled up on your bed with tons of decorative pillows, eating full bricks of chocolate and watching Pride and Prejudice (the six A&E hour version) with mascara running down your face but I want you to know it’s going to be okay. You’re still incredibly hot and you still probably want world peace, so get out there and do it. We still love you! And probably didn’t know who you were before this.

you are so beautiful, to me.

Gus, a Chinese Crested Hairless, won the illustrious and much coveted title of World’s Ugliest Dog on Sunday in Florida. He has three legs, one eye, and one hell of a personality. He apparently slept through most of the competition.

And I’m freaking out. Why? Because I have a Chinese Crested Hairless dog.

My beautiful boy, Dr. Seuss (because he looks like a Dr. Seuss book character, duh), is amazing. And not ugly! I swear! But ugly is what people think of when they know the breed. Most of the recent past winners of the competition have all been at least part Chinese Crested.

So sure, Gus and Dr. Seuss might not be the picturesque puppies you see in the Purina commercials. I cannot tell you how many times people have asked me if Seuss was on chemo. Chinese Cresteds’ conventional beauty is on the inside-just like many humans. Maybe it’s just me, but instead of mocking their lack of soft and fluffy, we should be taking a minute to acknowledge how unique they are and appreciate the fact that they make us laugh. Haha, okay, that might just be me.

Anyway, I just wanted to post the link to the slide show of the competitors this year so that you could have a good laugh. (I laughed out loud a lot.) It was a tough year! My favorite is Squiggy. He looks badass.

Also, here is Sam, a three-time champion of the competition. If he hadn’t died, I’m sure he’d still be the champion. I’m obviously sensitive about the way people treat the breed, but I can say that this is legitimately the ugliest dog ever.
