••how low can you go••

picture this:

a tight-frame closeup on a late 20-ish brunette woman, mascara tears streaming down her face, a red inflamed nose, a cheap ill-fitting cowboy hat perched atop her noggin, distraught yet indignant as she looks into the camera, chin jutted up and out, voice quivering, each word, measured and deliberate, as she declares in a texas twang:
“i spent 9 and a half months in and out of hospitals.
never in my life did i think i’d stop being hot.

even if i spent the rest of my life in a wheelchair
, i’d still be hot.”

had i not looked up and realized that the channel was on some new contestant show called “Are You Hot? The Search For America’s Sexiest People”, i would have sworn i’d been listening to a rerun of an hilarious skit from Saturday Night Live.

and please take a moment to send some props to the fine expert judges.
