Of course we all remember the most infamous beauty pageant answer of all time. It happened back in 2007, when Miss Teen South Carolina, participating in the Miss Teen USA Pageant, answered a question about education in a way that has baffled scientists ever since. Her name is Lauren Caitlin Upland, and her fractured logic and confusing syntax made it sound like she was speaking in tongues — not to mention setting the cartography craft back 100 years. The YouTube video of that moment has provided internet comedy gold ever since.

I loved it when it first happened, I love it now.

But here’s something I apparently missed. Jeff Munn (mugflub to his YouTube followers) created a parody video of the whole thing, which is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. My apologies for this being five years old, but it’s the first time I’ve seen it. Such as.


Upland was a contestant on The Amazing Race in 2010, and is now a model in Los Angeles.
