Subject: Miss Singapore
One of the main reasons why in recent years the Singapore Government has
always ensured that their Miss Universe representative were of tertiary
level education or higher was because of the following incident which
occurred not too many years ago. It is the final round of the Miss
Universe Pageant and the 3 finalists, Miss USA, Miss Malaysia and Miss
Singapore are being asked 3 simple questions:
MC: The first question is name me an electrical appliance starting with
Miss USA: Lamp
Miss Malaysia: Light bulb
Miss Singapore: LADIO
Judge: No, no, Radio does not start with the letter "L"
MC: I am going to give you 2 more chances; The next question is name me an
animal starting with the letter "L"
Miss USA: Lion
Miss Malaysia: Leopard
Miss Singapore: LABBIT
Judge: No, no, no, Rabbit does not start with the letter "L"
MC: I am going to give you one last chance, if you answer this question
incorrectly, you are disqualified.
Name me a fruit starting with the letter "L"
Miss USA: Lemon
Miss Malaysia: Lychee
Miss Singapore, with full of confidence, smiles and says: LIEWLIAN !
This is not the end of the story, the Judge consulted the board of judges
to determine if Miss Singapore should really disqualified; and they
decided that since Miss Singapore was having as many problems with the
letter "L", the decided to give her another chance.
Judge: OK, the final question is name me a human anatomy starting with the
Miss USA: Lung (applause)
Miss Malaysia: Liver (even more applause)
Miss Singapore: LAN CHEOW !
