The other day on Oprah
Dolly Parton talked about the time,
one Halloween,
when she found herself between gigs
in a town with a large gay community.

Dolly thought that it would be a
wonderful opportunity
to go out anonymously
and just have her some fun.

As expected, she got lost in a sea of
Cher and Dolly impersonators;
and though she had put on even MORE makeup

flouncing about everywhere.

She even entered a "Dolly Parton Look Alike Contest"
and to hear her tell it,
everybody overlooked the runt!

That's right:
Dolly Parton LOST
a Dolly Parton Look-alike contest.

So remember,
people seldom realize what is right before their eyes.
They are too self-preoccupied to recognize
