Lose the caged animals

Why is it that this story conjures up images in my mind of primped-up, A.D.D. chimps with knives for finger nails?

In any event, despite the serious nature of the event, I still chuckled at what floated through my imagination.

An audition in New York for the TV show America's Next Top Model turned ugly when chaos broke out, leaving six people injured and three arrests. Thousands were queuing outside a Manhattan hotel hoping to be selected for the hit reality show, created and hosted by former supermodel Tyra Banks. Police cancelled the audition but could not say what had sparked the panic. Reports suggest matters were made worse when a man charged into the crowd attempting to steal handbags.

Clothes and shoes were abandoned in the street as women tried to escape the melee.

Some of those waiting in line at the Park Central New York hotel had camped out overnight with chairs and sleeping bags to get their shot at fame. Of those injured only two were taken to hospital, according to the fire service.

The arrests of two women and a man were on charges of inciting to riot and disorderly conduct. The CW network, which airs the show, said it was working with authorities to investigate what had happened.

This 13th series of the show is seeking 12 finalists who are shorter than the average model, with auditions only open to those under 5ft 7ins.

My favourite part: "Clothes and shoes were abandoned in the street as women tried to escape the melee."

Either it's difficult to run in high heels, or it was an excuse to say, "LET'S GET NAKED!" ... sadly, I'm thinking the former.

There has to be a way to put Tyra in prison for this.

"Idiocracy" as expressed on the cat-walk.

By damn, I am too sexy for my shirt.

As a society, maybe the lowest-rungers, we're doomed.

Embrace the horror and stock-up on Brawndo.

The thirst mutilator.
