higher, stronger, faster, prettier?

Synchro swimming, figure skating, artistic gymnatics --- While I would never deny that they require superb physical conditioning, incredible skill and stamina, anything that requires costumes, music and clown makeup is not a sport. If it was a sport, this two minutes of comic perfection would not be nearly as funny.

OMFSM! I actually remember that. Thanks for the memories, Rev. I'll be chuckling to myself all day.

I have chosen to not watch any more sports where artistic merit is part of the equation. I simply find them too irritating, and too prone to abuse. And that is still a fantastically funny sketch. "I don't swim". Hah!

And by the way, I may have spoken out of turn about you over at JJ's place. I apologise in advance if this news comes as a shock to your family. Hopefully, they don't read blogs.

That Shearer fellow.....why does he remind me so much of Mr. Spitz's nerd fightin' older brother?


Could it be chest hair?
