SPRING HAS SPRUNG or The Beautiful Show

When beautiful people cry, do they cry beautiful tears?

This is of course a trick question, beautiful people do not cry, they have nothing to cry about, for they are beautiful.

Spring Has Sprung is the 918th Beautiful Convention to cure World Ugliness. This year our two competitors; Dr Fergus Fantastic and Dr Waldo Wonderful, will each have the opportunity to unveil their contributions to the world of beauty. Join your host, the gorgeous, Hamish Gorgeous as we delve into the glamorous world of Goodlookingness.
