Won't Udo That Voodoo That Udo So Well!

OK -- size does matter, as we found out this year when the Belles of San Francisco made their triumphant entrance in the contest -- marking the first time the contest was won by a float -- or four floats, if you weigh it out!!! In no particular order, they were: Belle Whatling, Belle Poitrine, Belle Epoch and Belle E. Button. Great costumes, minimal talent. They did prove what Lois and Tami have always believed: that drag and leather are at opposite ends of the same continuum -- and these twisted bitches lived at both ends simultaneously! In addition to that, they all fed off of one brain!"[1]
