Clusterf*ck at the Miss Universe Pageant

Tonight's Miss Universe pageant concluded with a fiasco, as the announcer apparently misunderstood the final rankings and announced Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez Arιvalo, as the winner. Miss Colombia was crowned, presented with flowers and paraded around the stage for a couple of minutes when, to the astonishment of all, the announcer returned and said that he had made a mistake: the real winner was Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach. They mercifully pulled the plug on the broadcast a few moments later. I don't think the television audience saw the crown lifted from Miss Colombia's head.

Well Miss Philippines is alright but I would have still given the crown to Miss Colombia.

Students at Oberlin College Offended by Lack of Fried Chicken in Gen. Tso's Chicken and Pretty Much Every Ethnic Dish Served at Campus Cafeterias Because Cultural Appropriation

Students at an ultra-liberal Ohio college are in an uproar over the fried chicken, sushi and Vietnamese sandwiches served in the school cafeterias, complaining the dishes are "insensitive" and "culturally inappropriate."

...General Tso's chicken was made with steamed chicken instead of fried - which is not authentically Chinese, and simply "weird," one student bellyached in the Oberlin Review.

Others were up in arms over banh mi Vietnamese sandwiches served with coleslaw instead of pickled vegetables, and on ciabatta bread, rather than the traditional French baguette.

"It was ridiculous," gripes Diep Nguyen, a freshman who is a Vietnam native.

Worse, the sushi rice was undercooked in a way that was, according to one student, "disrespectful" of her culture. Tomoyo Joshi, a junior from Japan, was highly offended by this flagrant violation of her rice. "I f people not from that heritage take food, modify it and serve it as 'authentic,' it is appropriative," she said.

Oberlin's black student union joined in the fray this month by staging a protest outside Afrikan Heritage House, an on-campus dorm.

The cafeteria there wasn't serving enough vegan and vegetarian options and had failed to make fried chicken a permanent feature on the Sunday night menu, the school newspaper reported.

Those students started a petition that also recommends the reduction of cream used in dishes, because "black American food doesn't have much cream in it," according to the Review.

You know if the administration had the slightest bit of huevos and didn't mind losing a little revenue for a semester, they would remove every dish the SJWs complain about, publicly post why it's no longer served and simply not replace it with anything. After a semester or two of repeated meatloaf, chicken soup and vegetable medley the rest of the student body would provide a little negative corrective feedback to the oh so sensitive activists and put an end to the Food Outrage game.
