Miss Klingon Empire Beauty Pageant

No fooling: this is the dorkiest thing you are going to get here at SciFi Scanner for awhile. The above clip is a selection of the Highlights from the Miss Klingon Empire Beauty Pageant held at DragonCon 2006 in Atlanta, Georgia. And it really has it all.

Broad foreheads as ridged and splendid as a triceratops’ bottom? Check. A dorky MC singing his own rambling version of the "There She Is…" victory song? Affirmative. Pudgy geek girls in make-up shouting out their thirst for blood between fanged teeth in a harsh, guttural, made-up alien dialect? That too. And don’t miss the Miss Klingon talent show.

The only thing it’s missing is a bathing suit competition. However, that sole omission might be a good thing: not only is it more politically-correct in a modern era where we all pretend that winning Miss Universe is a genius-level feat of mental acuity, but bluntly, I’ve heard horrible, horrible things about the hirsuteness of Klingon girls.
