From the Seriously?! Dept.

The tiny African country of Angola is putting a new twist on beauty pagents. On Wednesday, they are having the 1st Annual Miss Landmine Survivor Competition. The organizers of the contest are holding it to “restore self-esteem (in women maimed by the mines) and make them ambassadors for their own cause.”

I’m not making fun. I think this is a great idea for the women who are dealing with disabilities to get back their self-worth. But I just have this bad exploitation feeling.
