God, do I love women.
Not only for what they can and often do for us abject loosers on the other downward trending end of the great genitalia divide, but also for the way they can and often do backhand each other with such slyly quiet delight in the manner that the average dumbass dude [projection alert] rarely even takes notice of the cat furr flying much less recognises how much he is being pwned each and every day of his wretched pain wracked existence by these wondrous, superiour beings.
[run-on sentence alert]
It is not too surprising that a young beauty queen aspirant circa 2013, who is obviously very ambitious, only sorta above average cute looking in the rather generic way of postmodern teenaged femaleness (IE, so many are above average goodlooking that they are all average looking), and who is very quickly clearly distinguishing herslef as a supreme ironist of the first rank, [allegedly] decides to make an amateur porn video simply to earn a few bucks upon turning 18.
I mean, jeesh, you only live once! Give the grrl a brake, ladeez.
(And yes, I will interrupt here to confirm that I am a true lefty in more than one sense of the word, if you are scoring at home)
No, this fact seems rather totally typically on topic for where the conjunction of the infoboobtubes, celebrity and capitalism is leading our children (and grandchildren!) as we trip the light fantastic through the bowels of the 21st Century.
Nay, what truly truly cracked me up is this little concern trolling hit piece in what just happens to be the number one or two widely read print medium of record in the US of A-holes.
Uhhmm, I'm also pretty sure the DC print medium of record is fairly popular in nearby, uhmmm, Delaware, too, isn't it, Ms. 'We the Sheeple'?
As for Melissa King, I am certain she has many strengths and that her hard work and thoughtfulness helped get her the temporary tiara. (“Melissa began volunteering in her 8th grade year and fell in love with the joy of helping others!”) She will now have ample opportunity to hone those qualities as she prepares for her adult life. (As Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor might have told her “being princess is not a career.”)
Happily-ever-after takes a lot of work.
If it was the beauty queen having sex on camera, it was a bad idea — but she can still have a satisfying and productive life. I hope for King that it will unfold in many surprising and wondrous ways, and I wish her good luck.
Ah, yes, thanks for those nobly uplifting sentiments there, grandmama...
I'm also picturing in my mind (for I don't watch TV) all the clucking and twittering by all of those cable news infobabes (who got to their stations in life through their Murrow-like journalistic abilities, no doubt) over this little story.
These buds're for you, Miss [former] Delaware Teen USA....I'm sure that we will be hearing more, a lot more, from you in the very near future.
Self-promotional genius like yours doesn't grow on trees.
Not anymore, anyway.
