News, but not the serious kind
Count me in! Do you take plastic?
I guess I don’t get out enough. I admit there is lots of stuff I don’t understand.
But please. Here we have photos from the Miss Plastic Hungary beauty pageant, an event aimed at honoring people “who have had some type of aesthetic surgery.”
First of all, really? We’ve now sunk so low as a civilization that we give tiaras to folks who have done the best job of altering their natural appearance?
Ladies and gentlemen, let’s hear it for the new Miss Plastic! Isn’t she incredible? She doesn’t look like herself at all, does she?
Or, to borrow some synonyms for plastic from the thesaurus: false, phony, pseudo, synthetic, unnatural… Stop me if you hear a word you consider a compliment.
Now that we know this pageant is a sure sign of the onrushing Apocalypse, let’s move on to the next obvious question. If honoring plastic is what it’s all about, then how did they overlook some of the GIANTS of plastic?
Sure, Miss Plastic Hungary is molded entirely from plastic and admittedly she looks pretty darn good.
But is she better than billionaire Guy Laliberte, who pioneered the use of the clown nose in space? And what about Mrs. Potato Head, with those lush, sensual lips?
And the Plastic Cup for Lifetime Achievement goes to….
