iss Iraq... ok, I need to work on the words and lyrics a little. I wanted to bring you a really good story today but figured the Jennifer, Brad and Angelique story has been a tad over-done, even though I have discovered nude photos of the three of them. However, as you know, I'll stop at nothing in order to bring you the hottest news here for the Not So Normal News, your source for up-to-the-minute hard breaking world news.

About a month ago, under heavy guard and secrecy, Iraq held the latest Miss Iraq contest. A winner was selected and announced. No big fanfare, no runway walk, Bert Parks couldn't be found to sing. Months after Iraq's election, the country still has no national government. Now, four days after the election of Miss Iraq, it doesn't have a beauty queen either. The winner stepped down after religious extremists called her "the queen of infidels."

It gets worse... the pageant officials jus HAD to have a Miss Iraq, so they went to the runner-up. She laughed and declined. The officials, dodging bullets and land mines went to runner-up Miss 3rd Place. She was in progress of secretly exiting the country and refused to talk to them.

On their hands and knees they crawled to the 4th place person... viola!! she accepted! As if it were her best night alive she even gave an "acceptance" speech. I shook my head. I'm not sure if it was in disbelief or in sorrowful sympathy and pity. I really wish the competition was held publicly. I can only wonder what the talent portions of the contest were like.

Observations and Questions
Now I ask... no, no... I can't ask that... ok, you tell me what you think of this situation?
