Miss USA 2011 — Should Math Be Taught In Schools?
From Huffington Post
Last June, the Miss USA Pageant put out a video montage of every crowned Miss USA's answer to the question, "Should evolution be taught in schools?"
Unfortunately, the ladies' answers played directly into the "notoriously inarticulate" trope for the most part, and the general consensus among YouTube voters (4,700 to 400) seems to be that the video does not reflect well on the pageant or the U.S. On the bright side, the things these women said were also prime parody material.
Mackenzie Fegan and friends stepped up to the plate with a pitch-perfect parody and did the Miss USA girls one better by asking whether or not math should be taught in our nation's schools. The ladies give some thoughtful responses.
Enjoy! And have a fun, safe weekend!
