Fun Up The Wazoo

Should we go? Shouldn't we go? Should we go? Shouldn't we go? We were pretty tired. Sixty days of travelling will do
that to you. Besides, when you're camping, you're used to going to bed with the sun, and in the winter that's pretty
But we went, and what a blast. There's nothing quite like being 25 in a crowd of 60 year olds, especially when you're
all polka-ing to an Oompah band in Western Arkansas.
After participating in the Grand March, shouting "Hoy Hoy Hoy" a number of times, sampling the German-like American
beer and helping Channel 4 Newscasters win the Pretzel Making Contest, we were much more tired than when we arrived,

Meet Miss Arkansas!|
Since June, 2001.
Attitude: Very friendly
Future Plans: Ph.D Medicine, possibly family practice
School: 3rd year college, taking a year of while Miss Arkansas
Talent: Tap Dancing, to a Michael Jackson tune.
What does it mean to be Miss Arkansas? You basically become a spokesperson of the state of
Arkansas. Promoting tourism, public events, lots of public appearances like this one.
What's the Miss America competition like? It's a little scary. I mean, I was wearing my
swimsuit, and they chose that moment to tell me that 15 million people were watching.
How long did you prepare for Miss America? We started practicing for Miss America about 4 weeks before the
actual show. We were in Atlantic City on September 11, and the whole production went into lockdown. We couldn't go
to the ladies room without an armed guard. It was pretty scary.
What's the best thing about being Miss Arkansas? I love touring around and meeting all the
people. I'm really enjoying the spokeperson side of the job. And it's a job alright.
And the worst? No privacy.
Oh yeah. What's your real name? Jessie Ward.
