Miss Coaxial Cable

Cable TV was coming to Phoenix in 1952, and to celebrate a local TV store organized a "Miss Coaxial Cable" contest.

I can't find who was eventually crowned "Miss Coaxial Cable," but around the same time Mary Perkins was awarded the title of "Miss TV Cable," also in Phoenix. I'm guessing these must have been two rival beauty contests.

Really? Miss Virgin?? I'm sure she never heard a joke about her name.

@Virtual: I'll tell you a joke.

Q. How do you tell the difference between geeks and jocks? A. Ask them how many syllables the word "coax" has.
