From One U.S. American to Another

Earlier this week, we put up a post from the Miss Teen USA pageant in which Miss South Carolina had, shall we say, a wee bit of trouble answering a map question.

Well, yesterday she was on the TODAY show and got a do-over, a second chance at answering the "brain teaser" that left her so baffled (and host Mario Lopez fighting to keep a straight face). Here's a copy of the clip. Pay close attention as to where she''ll be attending college (about 3:43 into the clip)...

Yep. Appalachian State. Naturally, we here at the MZone would never, ever think of using such a comedic softball to our advantage. This poor girl - and by association, the school of our opening opponent on Saturday - has suffered enough.

Instead, we offer our ASU friends a hearty welcome to Ann Arbor, Michigan, this weekend. We hope you can make it up for the game.

Oh, and just in case...

Notice how she starts to smile BEFORE she finishes the last word of each sentence?????

Every time I see this girl now, I can't help but think she would have been better off just dropping a "Little Miss Sunshine" on those judges. SUPER FREAK!

Shalin said...

Wow.. I am speechless.. "U.S. Americans" was just .. wow..

I agree, BiB. Call me a pig, but I agree.

Yost - she was Miss TEEN SC, not Miss SC. Miss SC had a finishing class on "Paying attention to the questions those mean ole judges ask".

It saddens me to think that there is a family of siblings somewhere that will lose their inheritance money because some stupid "Miss Teen SC tramp" married their old, foot-in-the-grave Daddy.

Damn, I almost wish I was rich and single.

I think she needs some 1x1 tutoring...

TitleIX said...

yes, gentlemen, tutoring indeed....
to steal an old joke from Roseanne Barr, who else could teach a girl to read a map but a guy? Since 1 inch is equivalent to a mile????


sorry Andy, you set it up!

Why thank you Mr.(?) Whopper.

Maybe someday I will teach you how to link things. No maps necessary.

(Mr. whopper is my father, you may call me daniel)
wasn't anything personal, just a quote taken from the interview (1:32)

TitleIX said...

Dan the Whopper Man--sorry I whiffed on the Ann Curry quote.
My obsession with this bimbo bonanza is disconnecting my synapses big time!

and, Andy....just like with euchre (as you may recall),this 'linking' thing is beyond my genetic ability
miss ya bud!
