WTF Wednesday, crowns and cunning children

I did not watch the Miss Universe pageant but I really wish I would have. No one could have predicted this.

MU Pageant

Uh, sorry, Imma need that back...

And look at Miss Philippines face.  Look at those eyes!  You know what she’s thinking…spell Philippines wrong now bitches!

Can you imagine how Miss Columbia felt? Let me just tell you if you’ve already put a crown on my head, you ain’t taking it off. Nope.  You might just lose your damn arm.

Oh Steve, you're killin me!

Oh Steve, you’re killin me!

I was in Wal-Mart earlier this week and there was a child and her mother shopping in the same section that I was in. I was looking at the art supplies and they were looking at the Crayola art sets directly behind me.

The little girl, who looked to be around 4 or 5, was ooh-ing and ah-ing over a particular art set when she turned to her mother and said, “Can I have this, please, please?” The mother calmly told her that Christmas was coming and if she really wanted it and if she was a really good girl she could ask Santa for it and he might bring it to her.

I could not believe the words that then spewed forth from the tiny creature girl child…

“That is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much stress mommy. I have to worry if I’m being good enough, and then if the store still has it so Santa can buy it because they run out of things you know.  And then I’ll worry if he can actually deliver it to our house ON TIME. I can’t deal with all that stress mommy. It’s too much, it hurts my head so much”

The mother put the art set in the cart without any hesitation, none.


As they walked away I swear the little girl looked back at me and gave me the slyest of smiles. I have mad respect for that little girl. Mad respect.

Santa Stress.  Who knew?

What’s your WTF moment of the week?

  1. I’ve never watched a beauty pageant before, but after all the controversy I just had to watch! So maybe this was all their marketing group trying to get people to talk about it and watch. If so- mission accomplished!
