Johnny is soft around the middle but that doesn’t bother Pattie.
She nibbles some bits and waits for him to finish his show.
Pattie scrolls through the news:
“Today in an action reminiscent of the worst excesses of the
1960’s a feminist icon burst into flames!”
“Oh me, oh my,” Patti sighs, “I’m so nuts and so obnoxious!”
Johnny weeps with Miss America as Ms. Arkansas is crowned.
Ms. Congeniality stalks across the stage to snatch her check
from the emcee.
“I will use my beauty to feed the World!” Ms. Arkansas sobs.
The crowd goes wild with sincerity.
