Whoohoo! Kinda. But also totally not. A size sixteen maiden has reached the finals of Miss England for the first time.
Here she is on the delightfully patriotic Miss England website
- she's Miss Surrey.
On the one hand it's like, hurrah, y'see, YOU SEE, fat chicks are not vile hose-beasts, they are sexy and hot and lovely, as I have maintained forevs
And on the other, it's like, dude, it's a BEAUTY CONTEST, a vile and shallow and archaic ritual celebrating that most fleeting of attributes, what do you care if a fat chick gets in?
I guess we can applaud the judges of Miss Surrey for their unconventionality and kick in the face to narrow traditional beauty standards, while also bemoaning the vileness of beauty contests in general and praying for their immediate demise.
She won't win, anyway, but I wonder if they'll place her in the top three as a token 'we don't hate fat chicks, honest' statement? I guess we'll have to wait till the 17th June
to find out. Watch this space!
PS - Mr England 2007
- o my godz! Who is judging this shit? I would love to interview the judges of Mr England 2008
. And attend the contest. What larks! Please could some magazine commission me to do this. Thanks!
