    A few nights ago, we had the Miss Dawg contest at our local high school. I thought the whole thing was hilarious, and we were "so proud" when my stepson won second runner up and his best friend won first runner up!

    However, I was frankly amazed that this event was not only allowed, but was sanctioned and supported by the school and town quite heartily! It's a very big event and very well attended. For such a conservative town, that surprises me.

    Another thing that surprised me is just how politically incorrect it was in so many ways. I mean, this is a rawdy, raucous event, in a town where probably 3 out of 4 people work either directly or indirectly in the oilfield. The local newspaper called it "the increasingly risque Miss Dawg extravaganza."

    Not sure if you guys, or even if the kids, are aware of a subculture that was an "underclass" here several decades ago - the Redbones (somewhat like the Cajuns and Brass Ankles of Louisiana, the Melungeons of the Appalachians, and the Lumbees of NC) of this area were (and I guess still are, though we never hear the term anymore around here) a group of people of mixed racial heritage - usually black, white, and native American or hispanic.

    Anyway, the guys got to pick their own "names" and wow, were they ever, ummmm, interesting. "Raneesha Royette," "LaQuinta Redbone LaMarcus," "Erotica La Dame," - that sort of thing.

    Considering that for some odd reason, none of the contestants was African American or Hispanic (about 1/3 of the high school is made up of these two groups), I thought the names were interesting. I also thought it was interesting that the audience was nearly all white.

    Participation is strictly voluntary - and the contestants are always from a wide range of social groups within the school, so I just thought that was interesting.

    The whole thing was funny but sort of awful at the same time. There was so much going on there just below the surface that it was hard to assimilate! I left there really not sure how I felt about the whole thing.

    Well, anyway, the boys had fun and we got some good pictures!

    You know, I think it's funny, but it also feels WRONG somehow! I guess I'm trying too hard to psychoanalyze the whole thing...

    That HAD to have been hilarious!

    We had a dance routine to Justin Beiber's "Baby Baby" involving a baby doll - it was hilarious and showcased perfectly the feelings of teenage boys toward the whole concept of a baby - which is one of disinterest at best and horror at times.

    I'm not surprised in the least. Everyone knows what happens in those Texas oilfields.

    I really wish everyone would quit distracting me with this thread and the one about concealed handgun laws in Texas. It's a bank holiday and this here banker really does need to get UP and start working on restoring a couple of antique pieces I've acquired lately. They're sitting there in the garage, with supplies ready and the garage door open...and here I sit fiddle farting around on this damned computer talking to YOU GOOMBAHS! Sheeze, leave me alone! :run:

    In Texas they swing fro & to,
    & break every gender taboo.
    Not saying they're gay,
    but they're heard to say
    "I wish that I knew how to quit you."

    In Texas (not Austin - they're weird)
    Them gay boys is much to be feared.
    Their goal - every Boy Scout
    Their chant - Everybody out!
    Their antics have got us all skeered.

    Hell, they make me feel like I'm gay!
    What a way to mess up my day.
    If I make enough jokes
    And act like a cow poke...
    (Hey! What does THAT mean, anyway...?)

    But excuse me for I did digress
    I ain't up for my boy in a dress!
    He had just the wrong touch
    Seemed to like it too much,
    Now we're all in a state of distress!

    BURN THE DRESS! LIGHT A CANDLE! SPRINKLE HOLY WATER IN HIS ROOM!

    Everyone knows it's all in fun, so it's okay. Have someone really be a transvestite though, and I'll bet the mood would change. Don't you think?

    I'll be honest, I think I would go crazy if our school had a drag queen contest. That would really be quite irritating and probably even infuriating to me.
