Are you Laverne or Shirley?
Blog Guy, please settle a bet I have with my neighbor’s plumber.
Oh, here we go again. Always settling bets.
What are the top three most prestigious beauty pageants in the world? I figure Miss Universe and Miss America for sure, but what’s the third?
That would be Miss Cyclone, no question.
Yeah, The Cyclone is the legendary roller coaster at New York’s Coney Island. A young lady named Angie Pontani was just named the 2010 Miss Cyclone. In fairness, I think she was also Miss Cyclone in 2007, 2008 and 2009.
I had no idea. What do they look for in a Miss Cyclone?
Just judging from the photo, I’d say they go for the chick with the fewest visible tattoos. In Angie’s case, that appears to be two. Of course, I have no idea what she’s got under those black gloves.
What do you think it’s like, being a roller coaster queen?
It has its ups and downs.
