"(to be sung softly and slowly, with solemnity)
From street to penthouse suite, master of mystery
She dusts everything she sees
She aces every case
She’s boss at the Arch Villain chase
She’s got a nice enough face.
She is…Miss Sleuthvilleeeeee
Hold your fedora up high
Hold your fedora up high
Raise it to the sky
Hold your fedora up high
Woaaa yeye oooh ye sky high, hold your fedora up high..."

(adapted from William Shatner's "Miss United States" from the hit movie, Miss Congeniality.)

(NOTE: These lyrics in no way imply that no males can enter the beauty pageant, but putting "he/she/it" everywhere necessary in the song would reeeeally diminish the effect of the poetic masterpiece before you.
Males are welcome and are encouraged!)

Welcome to the revival of the Annual Sleuth Beauty Pageant that I have hastily undertaken.

It's time to whip out your curling irons, your fake eyelashes, your obscene amounts of gel, your lipstick and most importantly your cameras, or perhaps just your knowledge of movie stars or notable public figures of Hollywood's Golden Age and school us folks at Sleuth in just what a beautiful avatar is! Or, you could skip the theme and just snap a pic of yourself. That too, we certainly understand. PLEASE NOTE: ONCE THE CONTEST BEGINS AND YOU ARE NOMINATED, YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO CHANGE YOUR AVATAR FOR THE DURATION OF THE CONTEST. FAILURE TO COMPLY WILL RESULT IN YOUR REMOVAL FROM THE RUNNING.

Here's how this is going to work. Consider this a warning post: if you think there's a chance you might be nominated, we suggest you change your avatar to its most flattering aspect possible. Currently nominations will be accepted once the judges are found and Ben is supplicated in earnest for his blessing.

As of right now, nominations are not being accepted! If you post one I shall smite thee. I will post as soon as I have full clearance to start and you can nominate to your hearts content. Good luck!

Message me if you are confused on anything above

*wafts cigarette smoke and struts around, posing and blowing kisses as lights fade. An OMNISCIENT VOICE is heard*

OMNISCIENT VOICE: Judges! Your task, should you so choose it, and you will, because I am omniscient and command thee, etc etc, is to rank your top 12 out of all the contestants avatars! You will then submit your list numbered from 1-12 to the Contest Master, Molly Maltese, who will tally up each spots numerical value (ex. Contestant Dick Cheney is ranked 12 by Judge 1, 4 by Judge 2 and 7 by Judge 3, giving him an over-all score of 23. Those 10 with the highest scores will be going on the Sleuth poll and are granted bragging rights, etc etc.
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

It has been brought to my attention that I ABSOLUTELY FAIL AS A CONTEST MASTER. D: Go ahead, lynch me!

I'm soooooo sorry to Joseph Zeo, Aknas and miss snopes! I missed this post, undoubtedly still laughing about the "anticipation" bit.

Thank you Molly for hosting the wonderful pageant. No worries dear. I'm glad to have someone remembering me, but with all the beauties around (especially ctown), the chance of winning is close to non-existent. Anyhow, i'm glad to be just looking at all the beautiful people around me. Enjoying every moment of it :)
