It's important for your age and IQ to match

Miss Teen USA contestant from South Carolina:

OK, I actually have no problem with beauty contests. Just be honest about it. Do the swimsuits, do the ballroom gowns, have a naked catwalk if you want. It doesn't matter, it's about the beauty of the face and body. Please just stop trying to pretend that the intellect of these girls and women matters one IOTA. Same for talent competitions. Does it matter to the people who watch pageants if the woman can sing or tap dance? Then stop making them do it.

But then, maybe it's possible that they put their brains on the spot just to get a laugh. In this case, it truly worked.

EDIT: [LINK] They gave her a chance to change her answer on the Today show. Her new reply was "Well personally, my friends and I, we know exactly where the United States is on our map. I don't know anyone else who doesn't. And if the statistics are correct, I believe there should be more emphasis on geography."

All I have to say to her response is


She should have just said "Our education system sucks rocks," and she would have been ok. ;-)

Give me strength.

I think I'll watch this with my daughter this weekend and explain to her that this is what stupid looks like.
