Worst. Name. Ever.
I'd just like to point out that there's a skater in this year's winter olympics who is named, "Slutskaya."
I have to be honest, I think that may be one of the most unfortunate names for a female figure skater that I've ever heard. It's a little like the feminist scholar who is named, "Cockburn." If you don't see the humor in that, then you know how the name is supposed to be pronounced- try saying it like a male chicken, and what happens when you light something on fire.
There ya' go.
Still, this is better than the last summer Olympics, where a commentator referred to a Chinese female gymnast (who looked all of six years old) by saying: "Uh-oh, I think she just broke the cute-meter." The inappropriateness of this remark was only surpassed by another commentator who asked the aforementioned gymnast, after her routine, "What's it like to be inside your body right now?"
Amidst her confusion, one of my buddies interjected, "Hot and squishy."
Indeed, a great day for sports.
So, you think this post is juvenile? Well that makes sense, as it is. Absurdly juvenile. I chalk it up to the fact that I'm really busy, and it was easy to write this. Oh, that, and because I'm a fucking child.
