NY Daily News- One hundred thirty-seven women set to compete in this year’s Miss World beauty pageant in Indonesia reportedly won’t wear bikinis because organizers don’t want to offend locals in the Muslim-majority country. The Miss World hotties will swap their two-pieces for more conservative outfits, such as sarongs, for the beach-fashion part of the contest, Australia’s Herald Sun website reported Wednesday. “I don’t want to upset or get anyone in a situation where we are being disrespectful,” Miss World Organization chairwoman Julia Morley told the site.
What fucking genius in charge of booking Miss World decided a Muslim country would be the best place to hold a pageant to judge how hot girls are? I respect Indonesia for not changing their cultural views at all in the past thousand years but that’s why you don’t see Miss Ebony booking VFW halls in rural Alabama to hold their pageants. Not to undermine whatever philanthropic bullshit I’m sure Miss World claims to stand for but people aren’t tuning in to see how Miss Brazil would tackle civil unrest in Turkey. They’re tuning in to appreciate fashionable swimwear, which consists of staring closely at a girl’s bikini top as she walks towards the front of the stage and then examining the bottom as she walks away to appreciate the needle work. I’m not even sure I know what a sarong is but I’m guessing you can’t do any of that when a girl has one one. At least we still have pictures of Olivia Culpo to tide us over.
