The Beauty QUEEN.

I bring you... the ULTIMATE Beauty Queen!

Meet Jenna Talackova, the freshly ousted Miss Universe Canada contestant. The rules of the pageant (owned by Donald Trump btw) are that you must be a "natural born woman" so Jenna was disqualified because it was discovered she was actually born male, although she's all woman now. I just gotta say that if I were transgendered, I'd be hard pressed to think of a name as cool as "Jenna Talackova"; let's just call her Jenna Tal, for short. Gee, I wonder if that's a made up name...?

This gal's got balls to even try to enter the pageant. Or rather she had Anyways I think I'm gonna crown her myself, as brave and beautiful.  

Jenna's a bit of a naughty girl to have lied on her pageant application; though admittedly the definition of "natural born woman" is open to interpretation. I've read that some folks think that the Miss Universe people should change their rules to include transgendered women. Others say that would be unfair; many transgendered women (born male) have an edge on natural born women in that they have taller, leaner frames, narrow hips better muscle definition, and zero cellulite. The fear is that they'd be considered more beautiful as women than natural born women.

This makes me seriously question our society's ideal of womanly beauty: are we aspiring to look more male than female? What do you say about all this? And what would your transgendered name be?

For those who wish to show their support for Jenna, check out the online petition for Miss Universe Canada to reverse her disqualification.

UPDATE: April 3, 2012
Last night the Miss Universe Organization released a statement saying it will allow Jenna Talackova to compete in the 2012 Miss Universe Canada pageant provided she meets the legal gender recognition requirements of Canada, and the standards established by other international competitions. Still waiting to see what's gonna happen with this!

I got the giggles this afternoon. It felt like bubbles... so I drew this.

Giggling makes me happy. I think it's the oxygen rush. What gives you happiness bubbles?

I can share mine if you don't have enough.

Have you congratulated @JohndStearns yet? He won the Pot of Gold contest. So I told him he could pick a t-shirt or mug from my Zazzle shop, but what did he do? He asked for something that didn't exist yet...(dun, dun, duuuuuuuuun...) ...until now.

I bring you the all new and fabulously original FUQMAN t-shirt collection.

Six designs available in black or white, all styles for geeky dudes or groovacious gals. If you think you can't afford this t-shirt, just consider what a great conversation starter it'll be.

Cute stranger: "Hey cool t-shirt. What the heck is a FUQMAN?"

You: "He's an awesome new kind of superhero. FUQMAN plays a fiery guitar and battles the Lords of Irony on Planet Zog. His super power is the power of exasperation."

Cute stranger: "WHAT?!? You mean there's finally a flaming guitar superhero who fights IRONY??"

You: "Yup. Awesome, no?"

Cute stranger: "Hell yeah! Where can I get me one of these? It looks so good on you too...wanna make out?"

...etcetera. You can't afford not to have this t-shirt. So go get FUQQED!

When I was out and about this afternoon, there were an awful lot of green people hanging out of windows and lurching about the street. I think I even saw some green barf on the sidewalk. That means it's time for another Impromptu St. Patrick's Day contest. I hope you're feeling as lucky as last year cuz I'm giving away a mug OR t-shirt OR calendar from my Zazzle shop.

All you have to do to enter is look at this drawing and comment like this:

Little kids say the darndest things. Here's some cute quips from my (now 15 year old) daughter.

What darndest things do your kids say…?

WARNING: You may want to wear safety glasses while watching this video. I'm just saying.

@TrashCanRoxanne shot this video. She's my BFFF. I know, there's an extra "F" in there and some day I'll tell you all about it. But for now, here's a taste of what we got up to last week in the Bahamian islands...

There was practically no one on the beach while we were filming, except for this one older dude. As he passed (casting his annoying shadow into the frame) he said to Rox, "I teach middle school; I know what you're going through." I think he thought I was her crazed teenaged daughter. Aw shucks! Folks are always saying that about me and Rox.

On a scale of 1 to 11, what silliness factor do you give this vid?
