Just Because I Can!

Dress Deemed 'Too Violent'
Miss Mexico is redesigning her Miss Universe pageant dress - because it is too violent.

The floor-length dress, belted by bullets and covered by sketches of hangings during the Roman Catholic uprising in the 1920s, has outraged Mexicans.

Critics says it glorifies violence in a country where a battle between rival drug gangs has brought a wave of killings and beheadings.

Designers who helped select the dress from among 30 entries said they had wanted something that represented the nation's culture and history, especially since Mexico City is hosting the pageant in May.

"We wanted a dress that made you think of Mexico," said Hector Terrones.
Stupidity knows no borders! :)
