Miss America 2011 Is Jail Bait

Siouxsie is more of an alternative beauty pageant kind of gal.  

But thanks to the wonders of Facebook and postings of Siouxsie’s cousin, she now knows all about the results from Miss America’s beauty pageant last night.  

It seemed that until yesterday’s pageant, Miss America had thankfully begun to fade away into the ether.  ABC cancelled its broadcast of Miss America after the 2005 pageant. They moved to CMT and later to TLC.

Last night, however, marked Miss America’s return to ABC and network television.

Here is the thing that no one is talking about. In what appears to be desperate move to attract more eyeballs, last night the crown went to an underage girl — seventeen-years old.

The judges crowned seventeen-year-old Miss Nebraska Teresa Scanlan.  Miss Scanlan is the youngest winner in about 80 years.

Now that Miss America is jail bait (in at least some states), maybe the contest will be relevant again.

Siouxsie finds something about all this irritating. Maybe it is the laws dealing with age of consent, or maybe it is all the blond women with fake tans, or maybe she is just bitter that the clog-dancing goth- ventriloquist Alyse Eady didn’t win.

For more information about goth ventriloquists, by the way, check out this link from the Gothic Tea Society.

Bonus Video: Word on the street is that Brian Seitzer will be MC’ing next year’s pageant and playing “Sexy and 17” at the end of the show.
