To tell the absolute truth I would not have known about, nor cared a whit about this event if it hadn't been for the turmoil in Nigeria.

But anyhow, here is Miss Turkey:

Glad it's over, really. Whingeing lefties and radical Islamists make for sheer nausea.

Congratulations.

Give me some time, and I'll write oxi_nato's rebuttal.

This is from the Miss World website:

Azra Akin
Turkey
I was raised in the Netherlands by my parents who are both of Turkish Decent and I have a little sister. I have finished my secondary education and would like to on to study at the academy for Art & design and languages. At the age of four I began to take ballet lessons and since then it became my passion, I also enjoy modern dance, street dance and the belly dance. My hobbies are: drawing, reading and playing the German flute. In sport I like swimming, running and general fitness

Someone better not let Weird Bill see this, he'll be ringing her up and asking if she'd next like to take up the Arkansas piccolo. ;)

Regards, Ivan

Is it any surprise that a Muslim Miss is Miss World?

Much like Nobel for Carter was a slap to Bush, this is purely a pacifying gesture to all those rioters.

Pathetic and unfair to this Turkish woman.

I don't she got into the top 6. I only saw the results very briefly on the Miss World site before the server collapsed.

I doubt it, as this will likely infuriate them.

Of course this means the next Miss World will be held in a Muslim country.

I have to wonder if they are purposefully picking Muslim countries to generate controversy and thus interest in the contest. As I say, I'd never even given this contest a thought before - I wonder how many people paid attention just due to the troubles in Nigeria.

I think it said Miss Colombia came second. Imagine what fun it would have been to have the contest evading FARC guerillas and drug smugglers. ;)

I knew it would be a Muslim. We have to prove that we're understanding and tolerant about their reaction to beauty contests and still give the prize to one of their own. The "winner" looks very happy --I don't think she cares why she won.

Well, they are probably decent since they opted to get out of Turkeyland..as to your descent - well, that's more problematical.

Read her profile. It'd be remarkable if she had the intelligence to know how to tie her shoelaces.

I'm just thankful that cheap, tacky Miss North Carolina/Miss United States (or whatever they call her now) didn't even place. She made a complete fool out of herself over her "title" here....I'm glad she didn't even place!

>>>How did Miss USA do?<<<

That's a loaded question, isn't it? I wanna know how Rebekkah Revels, who wasn't even Ms. North Carolina (due to the nude photos) ended up being Ms. USA for the Ms. World event?

Perhaps that will be the LAST we hear of Rebekah Revels. Except, of course, for her lawsuits. She's brought enough embarassment to North Carolina.

The lovely Happygal and I are considering starting up a "Miss Eejit" (Eejit being Irish slang for "idiot") contest to judge who is the dumbest one of these women.

I have to say Miss Turkey is off to a good start. ;)

London's Mayor Ken Livingstone condemned the decision to hold the displaced contest in London after it had brought "tragedy and strife" to Africa.

Oh give me a break!! Hello Hello, is there anybody in there.

You nailed it, this fix was in before the plane out of Nigeria was in the air. I can just hear a globalist pageant official saying...

"I've got it! Award Miss World to the secular Moslem country, the only one that might not go on a sharia rampage, in order to make our original bonehead decision to go to Nigeria not look so bad after all."

Think the other 89 countries in the contest will riot and maraud in retaliation?
