One of the better episodes!
25 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bubba Higgins enters his grandmother into a beauty contests for Grandmothers with Naomi's picture. When they mistake Naomi for a grandmother at the beauty pageant, Mama speaks up and makes a poor claim that her elbow is in the picture. Most of the episode is centered around the pageant episode. There is a lot of tap-dancing with some of the grandmothers. Don't forget Ken Berry is an accomplished tap dancer and choreographer. Of course, Mama has to answer the question that every woman dreads. Despite the contest, this episode is memorable because of the cast and the guest actresses who play other pageant contestants.
