"(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

I have been incommunicado during the holidays, and logged back in today to learn this!

I am totally surprised by it all, and feel very happy to be on the receiving end of such an honor! I certainly do feel that all of the contestants were equally deserving (well, not sure about the hairy-chested ones, but we won't go there), and will do my best to perform my duties, whatever they might be, in a manner that represents Sleuthville favorably and brings good fortune to all of its inhabitants!

*end of speech*

In real life, I have had family in over the holidays, plus a 9-mo. old grandchild who is having surgery on both of his eyes in a couple of days, so I have not been able to log in to Sleuth as much lately :( definitely been having withdrawals :P

Again, thanks to all, and my congratulations to everyone who won and to all who participated -- it was great fun!

I am curious as to what "bearing" one's chest consists of as opposed to "baring" one's chest?

Or are you perhaps referring to "bearing" a chest of beer?

Wow, despite I've just checked it, I'd like to congratulate all the winners and thank Molly for setting the pageant up.
And all the voters who cast me into top ten. o/

Congratulations to the Contessa!
I've been off for the Christmas holiday, visiting, shopping, and of course, eating. I'm glad the waiting is over. Congrats to the other runners-up as well. I think everyone had a hard time in choosing.

I've unstuck this, but posted here to give the Contessa a bit longer in the spotlight :)
