Hey, Is PTC Trying to PROMOTE Miss Universe?

The Parents Television Council is always indignant, but they're also occasionally quite informative.

Consider this press release I just received:

The Miss Universe pageant should be taking place in a red light district. At least that’s what the Parents Television Council claims after learning about the latest publicity stunt to gin-up interest in the franchise. This year’s pageant contestants are being photographed in body paint, and little else. Some of them, including Miss USA, posed topless.

Thanks for the heads up, PTC! I just might watch Miss Universe for the first time in years!
