Things That Make You Go Hmmm...

Sophia Loren was discovered by Carlo Ponti when she entered a beauty contest that...


***gasp for breath***

***choke, swallow uncomfortably***

***take a sip of water***

...that she did not win. This means there was a hotter woman walking the earth than Sophia Loren. Is this even possible? Do the laws of thermodynamics and underwire brassiere reinforcement even allow for this? Did they immediately shut the winner away in a convent because you'd turn to a pillar of garlic salt if you looked at her or something?

Oh, she likely didn't win because her uncle wasn't bribing the judges.

Maybe it's like God -- stare straight at him and you go blind.

It's not possible. The contest was rigged. I saw a current photo of her int he newspaper the other day, and she is still beautiful.

The first time I was dumbstruck?

Yep, a picture of Sophia Loren.

And so began one man's life of quiet desperation.

To my recollection Sophia Loren's mother was at least as good looking
as her daughter,having won a Greta Garbo lookalike competition.

It just reinforces the fact that some judges shouldn't be allowed to judge.

While many of your dear readers may be drooling over Sophia I must confess that it's all about Cary for me. That man was smooth, suave and totally delectable.

Yes, QV, Cary was so very. . . *sigh*
