I Didn't Know They Were Acquainted

Santa ♥ Ms. Missouri

Santa and Ms. Missouri seem to be on very friendly terms. If I were an old guy with snow-white hair I'd find this exciting. Actually, I'm not that far off but I dress better than Santa.

The whole Ms. America/Ms. Missouri (formerly Miss) thing is pretty awful. I remember watching Miss America as a kid and thinking it embodied unattainable elegance. There was an evening in a cousin's living room in Ireland when the whole family, young and old, watched the local equivalent, the Rose of Tralee Pageant, with rapt attention. But really. It's such an out-of-it vision of women and their place in society. Makes me think of Frank Zappa's Suzy Creamcheese.

Yep, it's pretty awful and needs to go away. Like that'll ever happen. Sigh.

Haha! Naughty Santa :) couldn't agree more about the beauty pageant thing Bob, all the pleas for 'world peace' don't seem to be working :))

The whole pageant thing seems so superficial. But then, it always did.

I'm not into these things but I do love Father Christmas.

It does seem really superficial.

Santa, behave yourself...
