Ten Other Questions That Laura Brown Could Have Asked Miss Hawaii At Miss USA Pageant
I'm no beauty pageant expert, so I'm not going to get into who should or shouldn't have won the Miss USA competition on Sunday. Such decisions are above my pay grade, mostly because I don't know the rules. How do the judges choose between the 50 or so contestants? Is it like a dog show? Are they judged on genetics and how they walk around the ring? It seems so subjective and objectifying.
Oh, and also Miss Hawaii is incredibly hot.
So imagine my dismay when she was asked an impossible question, which many are saying is the reason she lost the competition (Miss Hawaii was runnerup to Miss Washington D.C.). Observe:
What kind of f-upped question is that? Talk about loaded -- that one had the works. The questioner, by the way, is Laura Brown, executive editor of Harper's Bazaar. And she's hearing it today on social media.

The question even drew boos from the audience in the auditorium. But Brown pleaded innocence.
Hi guys. I asked the question I was given and Miss Hawaii answered beautifully. @MissUSA

I was only following orders!
But this is America, where it says right in the Constitution that "Congress shall pass no law that requires a beauty contestant host to simply just read what's on and card that's handed to her.
To illustrate, here are 10 other questions that Brown could have been handed. Would she have just blurted these into the mic as well?
* "What do you think about the Jews?"
* "Which one of your fellow contestants would you most like to punch?"
* "What's your least favorite state, and why are its residents such losers?"
* "What is the high melting point of platinum? Please describe its properties."
* "Miss Nebraska: are those real?"
* "Of the major religions, which is the stupidest?"
* "OK, three minutes of trash talking LeBron James ... starting, now."
* "Was the Kennedy assassination an inside job?"
* "Who wins in a swordfight -- Robin Aryn or Samwell Tarly?"
* "Wanna go back to my place?"
