In case you haven’t seen this, here is Lauren Caitlin Upton, Miss South Carolina Teen USA.  And here she is answering a question.  This is just hard to watch.

The exchange went a little something like this:


Question: “Recent polls have shown 1/5 of Americans can’t locate the U.S. on a world map, why do you think that is?”

Miss South Carolina: “I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uhmmm, some people out there in our nation don’t have maps and uh, I believe that our, I, education like such as, uh, South Africa, and uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should, uhhh, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., uh, should help South Africa, it should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future, for us.”

Huh?  Ok.  Obviously this girl got caught off guard.  And as much as I cringe when I see this video, it’s obviously not the end of the world for her.  Put it this way, I know her name, but I don’t know the name of the actual winner.  Funny how that works, huh?  She will probaby benefit financially in the end.  Plus she looks good in a bkini.  So I don’t feel sorry for her.  In fact, I thank her. :)

And of course you knew there would be some mocking of Miss Teen South Carolina.  Could have been funnier, but I guess this was the best someone could do.

By the way, how does Mario Lopez keep getting these gigs?  Or at least it seems like he’s done this stuff before.  Wasn’t he up to replace Bob Barker on the “Price is Right”?  Someone clearly sold their soul to Satan.

Today's Deep Thought

  • To me, truth is not some vague, foggy notion. Truth is real. And, at the same time, unreal. Fiction and fact and everything in between, plus some things I can't remember, all rolled into one big "thing." This is truth, to me.
