During the live 2007 Miss Teen USA Pageant, contestant Lauren Caitlin Upton, representing South Carolina, was asked, "Recent polls have shown a fifth of Americans can't locate the U.S. on a world map. Why do you think this is?" Her answer can best be described as the exact opposite of what happened to Will Ferrell's character from Old School when he blacked out during the debate and accidentally delivered a perfect, coherent response to the question.
But even that description pales in comparison to Upton's actual words, which I will now share unedited, courtesy of The Transcription Room. "I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because some people out there in our nation don't have maps and, uh, I believe that our education, like such as in South Africa and, uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as and I believe that they should, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., er should help South Africa, and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so that we will be able to build up our future for our children."
In the equally immortal worlds of host Mario Lopez, who amazingly was not doubled over with laughter, "Thank you very much, South Carolina."
