2016 Miss 500: Fornicating Four Preview

Four

We are in year five of this endeavor.  We’ve broken every constitutional, moral, ethical, democratic, and google history concept there is.  We even had a female win this thing.  But maybe this was all barreling to this year’s Fornicating Four which features one overarching feature:  equilibrium.  In years past, the likes of Emma Watsons rise and Kate Uptons fall.  Nate Silver wouldn’t dare bring his abacus to the Miss 500 Tourney for fear of the professional ruin and long nights crying it would bring his otherwise statistical genius (or not).

The one thing that is true is a woman wins Miss 500.  After that, all bets are off.  Busty model?  It’s happened, but ask Natalie Portman what she thinks.  Teen phenom actress?  Never happened.  Blonde bombshell?  Took 4 years to get there.  An American Miss 500?  Ha!

But this year, we have a chance not to breakthrough with something new, but with something for everyone.  The Fornicating Four features 4 contestants each with their own unique brand, style, background, and ‘specifications’ that everyone, young and old, male or female, Señor or not Señor, can enjoy.  It would be like finding UNC, Arizona, Gonzaga, and Mid-Major X in the NCAA tournament.  Everyone wins.  I’m glad to say that for the first time I am proud of all our 500 voters for getting us to a point of pure joy, happiness, and world peace.  You degenerate fools you!  That’s this year’s endearing lesson.  That and I can now spell Emily Ratajkowski perfectly every time.

Let’s get to meeting our 2016 Fornicating Four…

FORNICATING FOUR GAMBLING PICKS

RATAJKOWSKI (-4) over Roden

 

La Cuba Libre Tribute

For a while, the Southern Storm was upon us, but luckily voters realized what was at stake and walled up against the likes of Catalina, Ossa, Loiaza, and finally Ana de Armas.  Señorita de Armas came into the 2016 tourney as an unknown, only to storm to the Erotico Ocho as a constant underdog (only achieving 60 total votes after The Ocho, far behind her fellow contenders).  Still, its a sign of things to come with US-Cuban relations warming, Carnival Cruises taking advantage of Old Habana, and Señor Robles conducting a trade mission to Cuba in May that will ultimately lead to WW3 and make Kennedy-Kruschev proud.  But no matter how short our Latinas fell this year, we will always be able to honor their historic runs through the power of sandwich…
