More Crass Than Class

I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried. I just saw an article today that describes a Miss Alabama Nursing Home contest. It’s no joke, either. The pageant is being held in a fancy hotel, with the current Miss Alabama as co-host. Contestants will do 15-minute interviews and answer a random question before their winner is chosen.
I think it’s nice for older ladies to have a beauty contest of their own. It’s not the pageant itself I object to. It’s the name. Miss Alabama Nursing Home. Ugh. Ugh. Ugh. In these days of knee-jerk political correctness, I can’t believe this is the best they could do, title-wise. There is already a Miss Senior Alabama pageant, why not expand that to include nursing home residents too? All right, so the competition might be a bit tougher, but hey, that’s pageant life.
