China Wins Miss World

When you have a billion people from which to choose, I guess you are going to come up with the biggest hottie. Personally, I was pulling for Miss Angola, who was first runner-up.

Now that Europe is in the full throws of post-modernism (and we are stumbling in that direction), "beauty pageants" are supposed to be demeaning, politically incorrect, and in bad taste. But for the countries that are just approaching 1950's levels of development, I'm sure this is big stuff. I know it was here.

Anyway, as a self admitted troglodyte and male chauvenist (in the best way possible), I am moderately entertained by these contests. But only when they are conducted overseas. The image of Donald Trump slavering all over himself in Atlantic City is still pretty repulsive.
