Miss Teen USA 2007 - South Carolina answers a question

I will tell the story of my trip to scarborough another time. This is a christmas present for you. It made me feel a lot better about my recent interviews.

To be fair, Mermaid, it was a tricky question. I'm damned if I know the answer. What's this about your interviews? Are you looking for another job?

Mermaid of Moorgate said...

Hallo gorilla. I think it was difficult to distinguish between US Americans and non-US Americans, which probably caused her, like such as the Iraq question.

Nuvver job? Not really, but I have been giving and receiving a lot of presentations and interviews recently - at one pitch presentation I told the prospective clients we could meet in a cafetiere... durh!

The Hitch said...

Definatley a blonde moment (+:
*hints at mermaid*
Hope you, , monty and your curmudgeon father have a lovely christmas.

I heard that when they are training Indians in call centers who have to deal with Americans they are told the 35=10 rule to teach them at what level to talk to the callers. Basically it means a 35 year old American has the same level of intelligence as a 10 year old Indian. In the case of this lovely lady obviously she was last in line when it came to getting brains and maybe the 35=3 rule would apply in her case?

Did she win then?

If you flick through the linked videos you can see her in a bikini guys :)

Lilith said...

She came third.

grinninggrinch said...

I want HER for Christmas. I'd promise to be a good boy and have my Tiny Tim moment. I'd even pay 2 guineas for a goose. She's fit AND thick! What a charming combination.

Newmania said...

Thanks Steven L

Now thats my kind of woman , sensitive charming presentable and non threatening . Why oh why oh why can all women not be more liek that nice one there Hmmmm is that sooo much to ask ?

I think not

electro-kevin said...

She does nothing for me.

I don't care how good looking. She could not arouse me.

Verge said...

My friend ****** once asked me (in all seriousness, & bursting out laughing as she finished as she nervously realised she was probably in Darwin Prize territory) "is your pulse something to do with your heart, then?" Brunette, as it happens. Lovely person, but how she remembers to breathe when she wakes up in the morning I don't know.

Seasonal blessings on your happy aquarium, Mermaid.

The Hitch said...

kev
the only thing that arouses you is a slap over the "old chap" with a ruler from a strict middle aged woman.
She doesnt do anything for me either apart from being nice to look at, although being charitable, maybe the poor girl was just nervous.She has probably died a thousand deaths from this humiliation.She's only a teenager.

True Blue said...

Happy Christmas Merms.

Love Di. xx

EmmaK said...

Don't worry Mermaid, I am sure you have never answered the question: "Budapest is the capital of what European country" with the answer, "I thought Europe was a country."

Mermaid of Moorgate said...

hitch - a blonde moment? oh I have plenty - usually involving something dumbass and potentially dangerous. But I have never looked like I was mentally stupid in the process, just very very unlucky.

grinchisgood said...

Yes, she didn't make one iota of sense, but then again she didn't make any pretense of making it look as if she knew what the hell she was talking about. Give the girl some credit.

Daisy said...

i don't know if blonde has anything to do with it but i was in court yesterday and the lawyers there didn't sound much better...the judge even had to stop and ask what they were talking about...seems in the US you can talk around any subject long enough and there is someone who will listen and make sense of it...somehow...

Lady Jane said...

I saw her on some talk shows.. after her very public humiliation, and she came off looking quite sweet. At least she could laugh at herself and she scored points for it. A lamentable case of EXTREME stage fright.. none of us knows how we would have handled it, especially at her age.

Another lamentable occasion... Brits slagging off American (while happily living here)... annoys me no end!

Merry Christmas.. and all of that Mermaid!

Lady Jane said...

Daisykins.. that's just lawyer jargon to keep the clock rolling.. they get paid by the minute you know;-)

electro-kevin said...

Happy Christmas, Mermaid and all your contributers.

Dennis said...

Yes, a Merry Crippy to all!

In this charming young person we see pulchritude allied with cerebral vacancy, he opined sesquipedially; whereas in your humble correspondent you have a perfect balance of intellect and appearance.

Electro Kevin, what if you were stranded on a desert island with her? I know, during the afternoon you'd just get her to cut palm-leaves for the hut roof, then, following supper and a nice drop of coconut milk as a nightcap, you'd retire to your separate quarters.

Actually what all these fat, ugly, middle-aged men (with their balding pates and hairy nostrils & ears) fail to realize in their speculations about "would-they wouldn't-they" is that she would run a mile at the first suggestion of hanky-panky, crying "Euuuwwww!" and seeking the comfort of her hunky & well-endowed 20-year-old long-term surfer dude.

The Hitch said...

Dennis
I think she would crawl over you to get to me in bed
Probably for protection (not the rubber kind)
Seriously, poor kid had stage fright, and is as you say getting bad sex from some idiot with a washboard stomach, all his teeth and hair, no warts and no hump back.
Still, a talent for bell ringing and free style climbing gets the ladies excited.
Dennis,
You could be in with a chance.

Dennis said...

Thanks! I feel better already!

True Blue said...

Hitch: Should Dennis be rejected by Merms he could roll oer on to his hump on and rock himself to sleep !

Get over to my site and wish me Merry Christmas, you miserable old Scrooge, before you evaporate into
the Blogsphere !(I do love you BTW Hitch)

Merms come over and do Christmas stuff, pleeese.
Di. xxx

Dennis said...

Ms Trubes: I have forsworn matters of the heart after a recent disappointment. No addresses of mine shall be paid to Ms Mermaid of Moorgate, who is not equipped to climb a narrow spiral staircase, and anyway has far more important matters to attend to, to wit, luring sailors to their doom.

grinchy said...

It was love at first sight. Mind you she bears a remarkable resemblance to a little lady I keep folded up and kept away from mummies prying eyes.

grinchy said...

Mummy's prying eyes even.

Daisy said...

Merry Christmas to you Mermaid...i have enjoy meeting up with you this year on this blogosphere...i hope santa brings you something desirable and if not splurge a little on the tail darlin

Hercules said...

God is she related to George Bush???

I am reliably informed that a wallet the size of a skip greatly enhances ones prospects with the female sex. If you wish, you can go for the authentic rich prick look by putting on more weight and losing all your hair. Good luck with this. I hope it gets you over your disappointment with Esme.

god said...

hercules.

No, but she has a bush called George.

Dennis said...

Mr or Ms Anonymous

Thank you for your advice, which was no doubt well meant.

Alas I labour under enough handicaps as it is, and fail to see how the loss of my crowning glory would improve my chances with the Fair Sex.

I agree that a hypertrophied wallet would be a help, but I am a French citizen and must thank President Chirac for taxing all my meagre savings away.

The one who broke my heart is not called "Esme", but bears another name, which now is far too painful for me to rehearse.

I have been cast aside; I am wretched; I am inconsolable. My belfry is cold and cheerless; my deafness isolates me from humanity. My life, a bucket of grey dregs, was briefly lit up, as by a comet, with cruel Hope: but 'twas a false dawn, and now I am in a worse case than before.

Anonymous said...

In an emergency I always indulge myself with what the Italians call,"cinque contra uno", loosely translated as,"the struggle of five against one". I hope this lights up your belfry like the brief visit of a firefly. Oh dear you're not a catholic are you? If so, scratch that. Another false dawn.

The Hitch said...

Dennis,
have you tried speed dating?
You can swing from belle to belle *groans*

Mermaid of Moorgate said...

Gee, I wish I were dumb and young. I might have been taken off that shelf like it was Christmas!

thegrinch said...

Yep!

Dennis said...

Anonymous, what you suggest is impossible on account of my posture. Besides, I don't want to go blind.

The "Esme" of whom you spoke ... did you mean "Esmeralda"? She was never known by any other name.

I forgave her long ago. She knew not what she did.

Hitch, your comment is in poor taste, as always.

True Blue said...

LOL Dennis. Go to bed now Sweetie, and lie on your back...

Anonymous said...

dennis.

Esme is what we called her down the pub mate.

Mermaid of Moorgate said...

I'm not sure I like the Grinch.
Dennis, you are worth many esmereldas. After all, with a name like that she would have gone to pot really quickly, developed hairy moles on her nose, warts on her eyelids and all her teeth. What you need is a touch of Disney this christmas. Ping! I have blessed you ALL with Disney happily ever afters! Let me know how it goessssss....

electro-kevin said...

'Swing from belle to belle'

Classic.

Dennis - I don't care that she might pass me up for a 20 year old with his six pack as opposed to my one pack and pate.

I like milfs - don't swell, don't tell ... and they're as grateful as hell.

grinch said...

mermaid.

What, I'm in a popularity contest now?

adam said...

Hi, this is not so related to your page, but it is the site you asked me 1 month ago about the abs diet. I tried it, worked well. Well here is the site

Steve said...

If she had curtailed her answer somewhat it would have been perfect. "Most Americans can't find the US on a map because, like, they don't have maps." Brilliant.

Daisy said...

I just wanted to wish you a happy new year mermaid...i hope there is love abounding and fresh fish available throughout the year...keep your tail in the water darlin and your head high!

Tuscan Tony said...

Trubes said...

Happy New Year precious.
