Back in the days before there was colour TV and the internet to keep everyone entertained there was a beauty competition for everything, including this 1957 Houston, Texas pageant for Miss Plumbing Contractor.
This got us thinking about other themes for beauty contests. It turns out there are quite a lot of them. There is a list on Wikipedia but there doesn’t seem to be a plumbing related one there.
Here are some retro themed contests that might raise an eyebrow.
Here are some more contemporary but equally odd ones.
But there doesn’t seem to be a plumbing-related one in any of these either. Perhaps it’s time to reinstate Miss Plumbing Contractor?
And in these more enlightened times, perhaps a 'Mr Plumbing Contractor' contest, too? Maybe we should be assessing not just how either gender looks in a swimsuit but whether he or she can clear a blocked drain?
If you have come across any other plumbing-related beauty pageants please let us know.
