Why are we all fascinated with “train wrecks”?

So the list of the year’s most memorable quotes was just release. #1 on the list was “Don’t tase me, bro”. However, my favorite was #2 – the answer of Miss South Carolina, Lauren Upton, at the Miss America pageant. In case you can’t understand some of her mumbling in the video above, here is the actual quote:

“I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because some people out there in our nation don’t have maps and I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and Iraq and everywhere like such as and I believe that they should our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S. or should help South Africa and should help Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future for us.”

Keep in mind her question was why are one-fifth of Americans are unable to locate the United States on a map. Big props to Mario Lopez (the host and AC Slater from Save by the Bell fame) for not losing his cool and laughing-out-loud. I don’t think I would have been able to control myself.
