Lauren Caitlin Upton, the Miss Teen USA contestant whose fumbling inarticulacies in response to a question about American ignorance captivated a nation (and if you haven't seen the clip, go now), showed up on the "Today Show" this morning to explain that she "misunderstood" and "drew a blank." Matt Lauer and Ann Curry give the plucky youngster a second chance to respond to the query, but, frankly, we prefer the original response. (Clip courtesy of Slut Machine.)
