Welcome back, Trashcans! This week Drag Race did not make me want to throw up or break my tv! Drag Race is tolerable again! Phew. As there are fewer queens to follow, we can finally explore the appealing sides of the queens, not just their worst attributes. I’m writing this from Ru’s pink private jet, dranking plane dranks, on my way to a Drag Race Summit in New Orleans. Due to the shitty connection (and my intoxication) I can’t post pictures this time, so just imagine I posted the fat picture of Miss Fame and her chicken at the state fair 10 times becomes I’m obsessed with it. BTW her fat picture is pretty close to me at my skinniest.
Let’s be honest. There are only three things that really matter this week. I will go in rising order of importance. Mrs. Kasha Davis is finally gone. The producers did us a solid by highlighting all that MKD had to offer – mild humor, old lady looks, mediocre lip-syncing, and bitterness towards younger, more naturally gifted queens. She did an ok Joan Rivers, but otherwise good riddance. There’s always time for a cockta…. Nevermind. Next up – Pearl sassed Rupaul. Initially I was like Oh No She Didn’t….but then Pearl didn’t really say anything awful, she just stood up for herself when Ru told her that she had no personality. She’s not a doormat. But it did shake her out of her stupor and she delivered a great performance. Ru must not be that upset because she let Pearl win the challenge.
MOST IMPORTANT! Learning about Miss Fame’s younger, fatter, nerdier self at the State Fair with her prized chickens. I am still processing this information days later and I want thousands of Miss Fame Chicken memes. If you can find or make any please please please post them here. Vitamin E and bluing lotions? Inspecting chicken butt holes? Hatching chicks under your bed on an ongoing basis? The impression? Is this a super meta-analysis of Drag Race that I don’t understand? I have to re-evaluate my Miss Fame feelings. It doesn’t necessarily make me like her more. It’s kind of disgusting, but also fascinating. I definitely think she might smell weird and live in a cage with newspaper flooring. Also, it’s clear that Miss Fame isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
