Donut, meat and fruity - these vintage beauty pageant queens have been covered in all kinds of food. It just makes us wonder why don’t we get these kinds of beauty pageants today?

We're not sure what the motivation behind these weird pageants might have been, but at least it features delicious food in it, so that's something! See for yourself:
