There’s a lot of current events to discuss, but I think my new favorite topic is the fact that Janeal Lee, Ms. Wheelchair Wisconsin has been dethroned for standing up. First of all, she wasn’t even in a wheelchair. She was in a scooter. (Fabulous.) Second of all, apparently, she’d made it perfectly clear that she’s always been able to walk about 50 feet “on a good day.” (Again, fabulous.)
None the less, when Janeal showed up in the newspaper standing, the Ms. Wheelchair Wisconsin administration went nuts. This is a huge controversy, with even the runner up refusing to accept the crown. So it went to the second runner up, Kim Jerman, who gladly grabbed it and threw it on her head. Thank God she did, as only 5 people competed for the title.
Kim will get to compete in the Ms Wheelchair America contest, held this July 19-24 in Albany. Apparently, it takes 5 days to judge these gals. I’m just hoping Janeal shows up and finds a way to sabotage Kim, perhaps entangling her evening gown in the spokes of her wheelchair or greasing the runway so she slides right off, crashing into the crowd of wheelchair enthusiasts.
I think I smell screenplay…
