Every day in history is like a snowflake from heaven’s snowflake garden.
It’s unique and it is fragile. Put it in your brain before it melts. This is
what happened on September 17, 1983…
The subject of this post has left the Guffaw in a state of self-examination. Is the Guffaw racist? No. Is the Guffaw misogynist? No. Does the Guffaw hate having a shallow, lyrically simplistic, gooey love song stuck in the head? Oh, yes… sometimes the snow comes down in June/sometimes the sun goes ‘round the moon…
On September 18, 1983, Vanessa Williams became the first African-American women to be crowned Miss USA and thus racism ended in America. Not really, but still good job Vanessa Williams. She did have to resign her crowd after nude photos of her became public. This was just a bump in a road. Williams went onto be a multi-selling music artist, award winning actress in both television and Broadway. She reached the pinnacle of the entertainment world in 1996 when she starred in the movie Eraser alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, a movie that is still waiting to be appreciated by critics and the general public (just kidding it’s terrible and all copies should be buried under the ocean floor in the world’s strongest safe, take all precautions).
Truly, Vanessa Williams has had a great career and possesses a lovely singing voice. The Guffaw wishes when he sat down to write this entry, that the sappy Save the Best for Last had notbeen playing in a loop in his head… just when I thought our chance had passed/you’d go and save the best for last/you went and saved the best for last… feel my pain, now it is stuck in your head fair readers.
