Miss Universe In Turmoil?

So Isabel Lestapier Winqvist (above), Sweden's entry in the Miss Universe pageant has withdrawn from the competition. Swedes seem to have just learned of the breaking news: beauty pageants are misogynistic in nature and degrading to women.

This is good news for people who like their beauty queens' front teeth to be somewhat aligned, and bad news for people who wanted to look at her eyebrows.

This Miss Universe contest is shaping up to be a slightly weird one anyway, with Miss Jamaica sporting dreadlocks and Miss Tanzania sporting a shaved...head.

Of course, the truly great aspect of this is that Miss Jamaica's "national costume" includes a Bob Marley concert t-shirt.

Jah Glory!
