Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity

The Miss Universe contest was held recently, and notoriously, Steve Harvey mistakenly announced Miss Colombia as the winner (she was first runner up, Miss Philippines was the real winner). But we don't care about that. We care about Tom and Lorenzo's bitchy roundup of the national costumes, in four parts 1, 2, 3, and 4. [more inside]

Half is Not Enough

Ariana Miyamoto is the first biracial winner of Miss Universe Japan in the nation's history. Born to a Japanese mother and an African-American father and raised in Nagasaki, she is considered "hafu" within her native Japan. [more inside]

You can never have too many hockey sticks.

Yes, it is that time of year again. Prepare your senses for the wonder and spectacle that is the 2015 Miss Universe National Costume Competition. Do this years entries live up to the understated subtlety of their predecessors? Has the bar for taste and refined class once again been raised? Are there any giant robots, aliens, or costumes thrown together at the last minute with materials bought at Target? Let's find out!

We are a nation of immigrants and Mr. Prime is one of them.

Ladies and Gentlemen, please feast your eyes on this year's Miss Universe National Costume Competition. Feathers, fans, drums, giraffes, a gecko, a bicycle, a windmill, a baby doll, Optimus Prime and—shockingly—at least one lovely dress were all on display. Previously. [more inside]

The pageant is rigged. An Earthling always wins.

It's December, and that means it's time for the Miss Universe pageant! Which means it's time for Tom and Lorenzo's hilariously snarky rundown of the National Costume portion!

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

The Miss Universe pageant. For all your apocalyptic fashion needs.

Nice rack boost chances for winning miss Universe

Beautiful women show us your boobs. Australian model Erin McNaught’s, now dubbed McNaughty, ”topless scandal” in the Australian magazine Zoo has boosted her chances for winning Miss Universe on Sunday. She is one of the bookmaker’s favorites together with Shakira’s cousin.

Whatever happened to inner beauty?

Since Miss Universe is owned by Donald Trump, who has two things on his mind, money and beautiful girls, his praise for her (after the “topless scandal” and media attention) has made her the favorite she is.

What will the future bring? Will we see a lot more topless scandals, home made porn movies and “worse” from now on to get mr. Trumps and media's attention? Time and Internet will show.

Have a look

Have a look at what Miss Israel will be wearing to this year's Miss Universe pageant: "The top of the silk dress, embroidered with diamonds and pearls, is covered by an army-issue flak jacket (emphasis mine) adorned with diamonds for a so-called softer look."

Bulletproof fashion as political statement?
