Donny Osmond in for Charlie Sheen? Winning!

Jay Leno poked fun at Charlie Sheen - fish in a barrel, I know - on "The Tonight Show" Wednesday, suggesting a "G-rated" revamping of "Two and a Half Men," with Donny Osmond replacing Sheen on the show and bringing a wholesome vibe to Sheen's womanizing character.

It's the same impetus that led to Utah's Sharlene Wells (now Sharlene Wells Hawkes) winning Miss America in 1985, the year after the scandal that caused Vanessa L. Williams to relinquish the crown. If you want squeaky-clean, go find a Utahn.
