You wanna see my talent?

Apparently noting the lack of non-fictional hottie girl superheroes in the world, Miss Americas are trying to fill the void. Let's make like it's a pageant and score them.

Miss Making the Internet Safe for Children: The current Miss America helped nab a bunch of would-be kiddie touchers by acting as the "bait" in an internet-pedophilia sting. They posted pictures of her when she was 13 online, then detectives posed as a 14-year-old girl, engaged in sexually explicit chats with some dudes, and they busted a bunch of them. Miss America was also involved in the actual sting: she waved some guys into a house, where they got arrested. She told reporters: "I got to chat online with the predators and made phone calls, too. The Suffolk County Police Department was there the whole time."
I'm the judge: Saucy! But also random and seemingly quite unnecessary; did the cops think the baby-rapists would not be interested enough if they posted pictures of someone less glam than Miss America? And why did she have to chat online with the "predators," or be there for the arrests? Presumably the real winners here are the cops who dreamed up a way to make Miss America hang out with them.

Miss Screw You, Gun Control Advocates: Also today, the 84-year-old Miss America of 1944 shot the tires of two trespasser/intruders and held them at gunpoint until the police arrived. The article says she had to "balance on her walker as she pulled out her snub-nosed 38-caliber revolver and aimed at the tires on the men's SUV, but she didn't think twice about shooting twice." About the incident, she said: "If they'd even dared come close to me, they'd be 6 feet under by now."
I'm the Judge: I am totally terrified of Miss America 1944, and thus declare her the winner. Congratulations!!!

I saw that story about Miss 1944. Quite the advocate against gun control she is.

And agree, she is awesome!

She also said: "I'm trying to live a quiet, peaceful life and stay out of trouble, and all it is, is one thing after another,"

I love her!

Also, weird that the young Miss A could pass as the 13-year-old b/c she looks 10 years older than her 20 years. (I'm really not trying to be catty...just pointing out how stupid pedophiles can be...or maybe the masturbation/blindness correlation is medically accurate??)

Heaven forfend about the masturbation/blindness correlation! But yeah, it did seem weird that someone would mistake her for a 13-year-old in person. Maybe the pedophiles were being polite by sticking around even though she looked older than she said?
