hey, you didn't pick the winner and runner up of miss america. you picked the second runner up. i no longer know what to believe.

The killer app picked them, as can be validated by the post. I, like a fool, deviated from the App because I thought Oklahoma was too stupid to breed, let alone win. I will not be making that mistake again.

omg. oklahoma was the stupidest thing on two legs. killer app still only picked winner and second runner up. alabama was the first runner up. and she was so ugly! i didn't want to pick her either, but like a fool, i did. my killer app is stupid, but also netted me two of the top three.

p.s. i think i like jason's killer app best. pick only les filles en pointe 10 minutes before the show starts and you will win the tiara.

You're right, it was winner and second runner up. I'll correct that. I just still can't believe Georgia came in third behind the lumbering ballerinas with her incredible piano playing. Wishful thinking.

i'm totally voting for georgia again for miss usa. oh yes, maybe this time, georgia, you peach, you.

Really? I don't see why. I think you should publish your killer app.

if you don't know, i ain't telling.
