Why do we need a spoof of beauty pageants when the real thing provides so much unintentional humor, not to mention some real ugliness? Because it's an endless source of humans at their worst! Here we have Paul Ryan's Miss International Princess Pageant Variety Show. The event started with the “Miss Southern Belle Princess Pageant,” only to be followed by “Mr. Gay Prince,” “Miss Lesbian Princess,” “Miss Asian Princess,” “Miss Jewish Princess,” “Miss Playmate Princess” and “Miss Plus Size Princess.” Mr. Ryan Bert Parks it up (look him up, kids) on the action The audience and celebrity judges decide he winners. There will be tears — let's hope lots of 'em.
