How to be Southern: Beauty Pageants

I was in a couple of beauty pageants as a child. I'm not sure what prompted me to want to do something like that...actually, looking back I think I just wanted a fancy dress. I know there are lots of scholarships that can come out of pageants and many folks enjoy participating in them. I'm not sure though....I sort of think they have potential to do more harm than good.

What do you think? I'm curious about your views on pageants. This SNL clip poking fun at the pageant world cracked me up....especially Zack Galifianakis' insult to Kristin Wiig that she smells worse than a bunch of "old Bojangles sausage biscuits." Who comes up with this stuff?!?!
