Is Miss Australia Ugg-ly?

By Wyatt Earp | August 8, 2010

The hemp-smoking hippies .

A pair of high-heeled woolly Ugg boots to be worn by Australia’s representative at the Miss Universe Pageant later this month has come under fire on two fronts — tackiness and animal cruelty. PETA asked Jesinta Campbell not to wear Ugg boots or a lamb’s wool shrug at the pageant in Las Vegas on August 23 because it was cruel and unethical, using Australian wool sourced from mulesed sheep.

Mulesing, a common practice among Australian farmers, involves removing strips of wool-bearing skin from the buttocks of sheep in a bid to reduce a potentially lethal maggot infestation called flystrike.

“Some people say that Ugg boots put the ‘Ugg’ in ‘ugly,’ but we believe that mulesing puts the ‘ugly’ in Uggs,” said PETA’s director of campaigns, Jason Baker, in a statement.

That’s PETA for ya. Friend of maggots, enemy of the rest of us.

    She’s a babe. The outfit between her boots and her collar needs to go. (In more ways than one!) Heh.

    Regardless of what PETA says or does (like that’s ever important!), that girl is guilty of a fashion crime!

    And it says a lot from me; any time a straight guy with no interest in fashion describes what a person wears as a fashion crime, you can be assured it’s really bad!

    “strips of wool-bearing skin from the buttocks of sheep”

    There’s a selling point: Uggs, made of ass-wool

    I’d prefer a bacon bikini.

    She come from the land down under
    Where designers just make me wonder
    If their brains were scrambled by thunder
    She better run and lose that ugly cover

    Fenway – Wow, that’s going back old school!

    Proof – The cleavage is fantastic, though.

    Morgan – I think the shawl is a koala head.

    LFH – Sign me up!

    Sully – Mmm . . . bacon! Mmm . . . bikini!

    Bob – Simply brilliant, my friend!

    First reaction is “poor deformed young thing”…then I thought about it a bit more and “brings a new meaning to going bush” comes to mind…think I’ll stop there…

    That picture just confirms that this young lady could wear anything and look beautiful. PETA must have bigger fish to fry…..
