"They had a bunch of Chers and Dollys that year, so I just over-exaggerated -- made my beauty mark bigger, the eyes bigger, the hair bigger, everything. All these beautiful drag queens had worked for weeks and months getting their clothes. So I just got in the line and I just walked across, and they just thought I was some little short gay guy.. but I got the least applause."

-- Country star Dolly Parton in an interview with Nightline about the night she participated in a lookalike drag show. The queens had no idea they were competing with the real Dolly Parton.
