Miss Sweden drops out of Miss Universe pageant

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070525/.../miss_universe

MEXICO CITY - This year's
Miss Universe pageant is missing one of its most noted contestants: Miss Sweden, a statuesque blonde whose country is one of the few to win the crown three times.
Is this really the best Sweden has?

From the article:
Miss Universe organizers took it in stride. "We will miss you," Papadopoulos said they told him by e-mail, "and we will miss Miss Sweden."
or, "Don't let the door hit you in the ass, on your way out."

I like the second pic better. Blame the messenger for the first pic (i.e., photog).

Miss Tanzania, Flaviana Matata, an electrical technician whose country is participating for the first time, is also challenging stereotypes of beauty with her shaved head. "I never let anyone define me neither by hair nor clothing as I believe God made me perfect as a pure, natural African woman," she said.

Apparently she isn't crazy about being the livestock at the rodeo.

Are you kidding? She's cute with a great smile. She just needs hair.

Well if he made you perfect, why did you have to shave off the hair he gave you?

Right. The photog picked a bad angle to create huge gaps between her teeth.

She shaves her head, but she is clearly wearing clothes. I declare shennanigans!

Maybe the photog used a wide angle lens.

You are wrong for that!

That girl is beautiful. For someone to be bald and still pretty you have to be really pretty.
