Everybody Run, the Homecoming Queen’s Got a Lawsuit

December 29th, 2008 · 47 Comments

The kind of people who would run for homecoming queen always left a sour taste in my mouth. Sure they are pretty and well spoken and seem nice up their with the scepter and tiara, but the amount of campaigning and cannoodling they have to do to get to that spot could make a Republican campaign operative cringe.

So imagine my surprise when I read this story about a failed homecoming queen candidate suing her school for not awarding her the crown, according to CBS13.

The candidate in question is a 40-year-old student at a university. Now we’re not saying that your age makes you more attractive, but I’m sure the judging committee doesn’t award points for every year you haven’t died.

She claims the school made it seem as though garnering the most funds from fundraisers would earn you the crown. Who says beauty pageants aren’t just fancy meat market shows?

She claims she’s not doing it for spite, just for the principle of the thing. That a big fat check. Too bad they can’t make it out to “the principle of the thing.”
