have you ever wanted to enter a contest or pageant but feel like you don't fit in anywhere? if that's what you think then you are seriously and sadly mistaken, my friend(s). there's something for everyone. and my everyone, i mean EV.ER.Y.ONE. don't believe me? let me show you:
here in a shopping mall in shenyang, china is the miss plump beauty pageant. i seriously thought this was a wedding dress. or a quinceanera dress. we have lots of those in tejas.
my friends in mumbai, india hosts the "indian super queen" beauty pageant for the transgender community. around 400 contestants participated in february.
a balinese transexual gets ready for a similar competition on the island of bali.
khadra al-mubarak is one of the organizers of the "miss beautiful morals" pageant in saudi arabia. the winner will be the one who exhibits the most devotion and respect for her parents irrespective of her looks. i am fairly certain that none of my readers will be winning this contest anytime soon.
rita, who declined to give her last name, belts out a tune during the talent portion of the second annual miss independence day pageant at walden house, a residential treatment center south of downtown los angeles. even addicts get in on the action.
and yes, there is a miss outdoors pageant. dakota abbott was one of two pageant contestants to also enter the muskrat-skinning contest in maryland. i'm fairly certain sarah palin could enter and win this whole thing.
these are the three finalists in the prison beauty pageant. each september, the female inmates hold a pageant in honor of the virgin of mercedes, the patron saint of prisoners. umm, cool...?
...and lithuania. they call theirs "miss captivity." wow. classy.
baton twirler shelby annelle twirls her heart out in "the great american trailer park pageant." tt was hosted by jerry springer 2005. naturally.
there's even a contest between HIV infected women call "miss positive." perhaps it's just me, but this seems a bit insensitive. maybe i'm wrong?
the miss dog america competition is fierce. my bailey could totes win this.
