America's Next Top Model Stampede

Have you seen this yet? Thousands of conceited women with eating disorders almost killed each other at an America's Next Top Model audition in New York. —- Apparently they all wanted to be B-level celebrities who host reality television shows about other models (e.g. CariDee and Oxygen's Pretty Wicked) or to fade into obscurity after their one Cover Girl ad/Seventeen Magazine photo spread shot by the WORLD FAMOUS FASHION PHOTOGRAPHER GILLES BENSIMON. The women may have started stampeding after an overheating car inspired some to shout, "There's a bomb!" Tyra Banks is quoted as being "concerned" and "shocked." I am quoted as thinking this is hilarious. And the New York Daily News has provided us with these amazing quotes: "The girls were running like it was 9/11 part two," and "I had to pee in a cup and change my clothes in the street," and the more serious, "All of a sudden we heard this roar from behind us and we looked behind us and there's a wave of people falling on top of us." Watch and enjoy.
