Israel, or rather some corporate pageant/scam operation in Israel, has just crowned “Miss Holocaust Survivor”. Here’s a story about it. Ok, this isn’t exactly a holocaust, and I debated with myself for nearly a second about putting this in MPSIMS, but I decided since I was in fact going to express an opinion about it rather than putting it up for everyone to bat around (which will happen in any case) to put it here.
First, I agree with an Israeli blogger, who is quoted saying, “This is one step short of ‘Survivor-Holocaust’ or ‘Big Brother Auschwitz.’ It leaves a bad taste…”
Second, I hope to Og there was no swimsuit competition.
