Mistr Brno 2005, for starters

While I don't live in Brno, I don't feel that I should be completely ignorant of what is... um... happening there (as Jesse so delicately puts it). Nor should my readers; we wouldn't want to be too Pragocentric.
Therefore, let me point everyone to Večerní Brno's valuable coverage of the Mistr Brno 2005 contest, which took place December 23 at a local club. Contestants had to show their merits in three "disciplines."
Judging by the photos, cross-dressing was a popular free-choice discipline (see right). "Promenading" in underwear (promenáda ve spodním prádle) was, not surprisingly, a significant part of the contest.
The first-place winner (he in the hat and black lingerie) won the title of Tělo roku 2005 back in August.
Today's headline news in Večerní Brno, incidentally, is that Indians are a normal thing in Brno. Judging by the accompanying photo, below, I wouldn't be too sure about that. They look pretty abnormal to me. When did you last see a Native American with dreadlocks? Then again, if they are in Brno, it would be normal for them to stand near a brewery ad, as they are doing.

Great notice.. where did you find this stuff? I wonder if goes along with trends seen in recent Czech pop television, like talk shows, reality shows, and game shows. Incidentally, when I get my blog going, I would like to ramble on the CT2 quiz show "AZ Kriz."

I get all my Czech weird news via our operative in Brno, who carefully sifts through it all between adventures relighting the furnace. Surely you don't think I know how to find it on my own? I am too lazy and (pretending to be) too preoccupied with odd lawsuits from 1936.

We are anxiously awaiting your news about Czech TV. Will you also be discussing Blesk and Šip?
