The Miss Sister Italy Nun Beauty Pageant
I swear I’m not making this up:
The BBC is reporting that “An Italian priest says he is organising the world’s first beauty pageant for nuns to erase a stereotype of them as being old and dour.” Instead they will now be thought of as young and slutty.
Antonio Rungi says The Miss Sister Italy online contest will start on his blog in September.
“Nuns are – above all – women, and beauty is a gift from God,” he told Italy’s Corriere della Sera newspaper.
He is asking nuns to send their photos to him, saying that internet users will then choose the winner.
Father Rungi stressed that nuns were not being invited to parade in bathing suits, saying it will be up to them whether they pose with the traditional veil or with their heads uncovered.
“This contest will be a way to show there isn’t just the beauty we see on television but also a more discreet charm,” the priest, who lives near the southern city of Naples, told the Corriere della Sera.
“You really think all nuns are old, stunted and sad? This isn’t the case anymore,” he said, pointing out that many young nuns had arrived to Italy from around the world.
He added that the idea of staging such a contest had been suggested by nuns themselves.
I once posted about a Catholic church that had scantily clad nuns for its service, and I still receive search strings all the time looking for uplifting posts concerning things such as:
Secrets of nuns
Very Sexy Nuns Undressing but unaware
Nuns gone bad
Sex with nuns
A nuns first time
Egads. I have seen many nuns in my life, and I’m fairly certain that any of these thoughts were about nine or ten millionth in line in my brain during such times.
Heck, after seeing Whoopi Goldberg in a habit in Sister Act I’m sure any possible attraction towards nuns has been purged from my libido for ever.
UPDATE: It seems Father Antonio Rungi has changed his mind… and I was so looking forward to the sword-drill portion of the competition.
