As a culture we’ve come to understand that “Little Miss…” pageants are generally pretty sleazy. Mothers vicariously live out their beauty dreams through their young daughters, which must surely be damaging to their developing brains. Thanks to Funny or Die, we can see those affects on Ashley Tisdale. She plays Makenzie, the beauty queen from TLC’s Toddlers & Tiaras, that throws temper tantrums, is ultra protective of her ‘ni-ni’ and tried to bite another contestant. In the video, we find Makenzie is now 25 years old, though she continues to compete in the five-to-seven-year-old range pageants, and according to her mother (Leah Remini), she was pulled out of home school when she was eight to better focus on the pageants.
Check out Tisdale and Remini as they show the other contestants and mothers what seasoned beauty pageant winners look like. Also, keep your eye on the bottom left of the screen for super meta jokes.
