Found Miss Congeniality on ABC Family Channel this morning (channel 19, here in Virginia Beach).  Happened on the scene where the main character, Gracie Lee Freebush, curses in the middle of orientation because, ostensibly, she had forgotten to pray before taking a bite of her bagel and schmear.

For some reason, “bagel and schmear” sounded suspiciously like “bagel.”  Apparently, the Yiddishism “schmear” was deemed too offensive, or time-consuming, or whatever, and was cut.


And just plain stupid.
