She muffed that one.

Maybe should have kept a chainsaw under her clothes at the official weigh in so she could have some room for error.

You quiero un abogado nuevo.

You'll get my taco when you pry it from my cold, fat, greasy fingers. o/t but... If anyone on this blog has any pull with CNN or any other news agency could you please ask them to quit mentioning Tripoli when talking about Libya? Thanks to them I now have the Gomer Pyle version of the Marine Corps Hymn stuck in my head and it's driving me crazy. Thank you in advance. back o/t

That's not hot sauce...

The Taco Nazi (judge) asked: How much do you weigh?

She: 130 lbs.



She should have stuck to eating fish products. Great taste, less filling.

There's no such thing as "too many tacos." That's just an urban legend!

Reuters? What's with the British fascination with Texas? They probably think JR was involved.

Would it have made a difference if she got fat by eating too many cookies? It sounds like they have a problem with tacos.

Nice fresh clams are less fattening. She should stay off the geoducks, though.

Sheesh ! What happens if you eat Fettucini Alfredo ?

We take our pagaents seriously in Texas.

If not your spelling. ;p

He thew his horse over the fence some hay.

Is she still eligible for the Miss Congealed designation?

Confused now. Are the fish tacos okay?

@dances -- it depends on the fixings. I like them.

now she's gonna have to think outside her buns

If our fundamental right to skinny beauty queens was overturned, you'd have Kirsty Allen in the swimsuit competition. And millions of men would be gouging out their eyeballs.

You may even have Kirsty Alley in those competitions too, hogatemysister!

The judge snatched her crown!

In New Hampshire, she could ask the judge for his driver's or fishing license, etc. If his weight is not exactly the same as what is on the license, he is committing a crime. NH law prohibits possession of any inaccurate I.D. that "purports" to be an official document. Unfortunately, "purports" just means "claims to be," so it includes real I.D.'s as well as fake ones. I suspect she would run out of impartial judges rather quickly.

I found the ad placement when I went to read the whole article just slightly ironic:


This one is for you...

From the Halls of Montezuma,
To the shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land, and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean:
We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marine.
Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in every clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job
The United States Marines.
Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we've fought for life
And never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven’s scenes;
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.

You are very welcome...

And un-vice-versa, Flying Manatee?

I was recently in San Antonio and I think I saw this girl on the river walk. There was a show there. She was pretty but definitely overflowing her top.

Most of the talk was in Spanish so I did not know for sure. San Antonio is sort of like Miami, you know?
