Missing were the flocks of drag queens stumbling in makeshift platform shoes, –but in their stead came teams of overexcited sorority sisters with Sporty Spice’-like tattoos across their abdomens or with their hair tied into Baby Spice's signature pigtails.

When one fan, eyeballing Spice T-shirts, proudly proclaimed that she'd take Posh Spice’'s style guide, That Extra Half An Inch, over the King James Bible any day of the week, the crowd jostling around her nodded in agreement, as though it wasn't even a question to begin with. And maybe it's not, ladies! Maybe it's not.
