Jaysus, well of course she’s from Minas Gerais / Jesus, naturalmente ela é de Minas Gerais


“Did you not hear?” 

“Hear what?” 

The news” 

“Which the news would you be referring to then?” 

“About Miss Brazil” 

“The president’s wife?” 

Nossa Senhora, you really should keep up with current affairs in Brasil, now that your living here Keith, I mean the beauty pageant of course”. 

“I didn’t realise Miss Brazil is current affairs” 

I like to wind-up my friend Adriano. I’m Irish, it’s what we do. It’s fun.  But also because with Adriano, it’s kind of easy to do. It’s like pigs to the slaughter. 

“Jaysus, well sorry ..Mr.Lula*. But I actually do” 


” I read Estado de Minas** of course”. 


“Anyway, what’s this all important news?”. 

“The winner of the Miss Brazil Contest 2010 is from our state of  Minas Gerais!” 

“…..and you are surprised by this?” 

“Well, it’s great news isn’t it?”, 

“Adriano, Adriano, Adriano, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’ve even wrote about it before for God’s sake” 

“And what would that be your all knowingness?” 

“About the woman from Minas Gerais” 

“What about the woman from MG” 

“Adriano, are you blind?. Or do you just walk around with your head up your ass all day?…. orrrr I don’t know man, maybe you just don’t like women anymore” 

“Kiss me arse!” 

“Now, you’re  scaring me” 

“I’m as straight as a die man, you know that” 

“Straight as a rainbow more like it”. 

“Ask me bollix” 

“Now I’m definitely getting worried about you. Hey and stop robbing all our (Irish) phrases by the way” 

“So, can we get back to the point?, what is it about the women of MG?” 

“Well, it’s kind of common knowledge man, that the woman from Minas Gerais are the best looking woman in Brazil”. 

“Ah yes, for sure that is true, I agree with you there. But seemingly, not only the best looking, but also the more down-to-earth women in Brazil”. 

“Yeah, I’d have to agree with you there. My wife is from Minas Gerais, she is a very proud Minera, you know that don’t you?”. 

“Yes man, I’ve met her…I was your best man at your wedding, remember?”. 

“Yeah yeah. Anyways, some people say that the women from Santa Catarina are better looking, but they are just similar to Europeans, blue eyes and stuff. Nothing new to see there here, move along, move along”. 

“Yeah exactly bro” 

“So, have you ever seen a Miss Ireland contest?” 

“What?, they exist?”. 

“Feck off with ya, there is plenty of good-looking women in Ireland. Actually the Miss Ireland contest would be on par with Miss Brazil!” 


“Ah yeah man, here, I’ll show ya, check out these beauties, they just might be…up your alley, so to say” 

Great legs




Oh behave


Can I have a peice of your fruit?.


“What do you think mate?, nice no?” 


“No comment?. Dont worry mate, this is “Alternative Miss Ireland”, and it’s been going on for over 20 years” 

“And you’re worried about me?” 

“Believe it or not, this gets more attention from the Irish public than the actual Miss Ireland pageant so to speak. It’s just a bit of fun, and all the proceeds go to HIV/Aids charities in Ireland. So any of them take your fancy?”. 

“Shut up” 

“You know what the best part of it is?” 

” I don’t think I want to know”. 

“They also have a swimwear round” 

“Now, I’m getting worried about you Irish”. 

* Lula is the current President of Brazil 

** Estado de Minas is the best newspaper in Minas Gerais..the best of a bad lot 

Miss Brazil 2010. Of course she is from Minas Gerais.


Alternative Miss Ireland winner 2010
