Miss Nuclear: fission for compliments?
This woman, who has won the title of Miss Nuclear, looks glowing and radiant. Let’s just hope it’s not something she brought home from the nuclear industry workplace.
Anyway, with nuclear energy being somewhat controversial, it seems sort of a bold move in 2007 to stage a Miss Nuclear pageant. So what does the winner get? A mink coat.
I’m serious. Nuclear, fur, and they openly bill it as a beauty pageant. If they could only get a cigarette company involved, they could just crown her Miss Political Incorrectness, 2007.
