THE WANKERS GOT WHAT THEY WANTED: Miss World pulls out of Nigeria after riots kill a hundred people. Can you believe this shit? At some point when this news was filtering in my reaction was, "I hope they stay, we as a planet need to stand up for goofy frivolity in the form of beauty pageants." But I don't know. It's all part of a larger conflict between Christians and Muslims in Nigeria--so Miss World isn't responsible for what happened. You can fault Miss World for going there at all--but Miss Nigeria won last year--but who picked Miss Nigeria? Here's the lgf thread on this. There's a joke here about Rebekah Revels, but I'm not going to make it. Nope.
