Okay, I'm gonna go all snarky on you today. I try not to do that because y'all could certainly find lots to make fun of about me. But the temptation is just too strong.
This weekend Smokey got the TV antenna lined up just right for me so I could watch the Olympics. (Fringe area + antenna only = TV reception problematic.) The only part that I, like so many others, am interested in is the figure skating. It seems the men's singles were on last week… missed them, darn.
But I have been watching the ice dancing. And I have to say this.
Maxim Shabalin, the male half of the Russian team with those ridiculous *aboriginal* costumes, has the biggest damn nostrils on the planet.
Every so often during the skating the camera would catch him with his head tilted back, and I'd think, "Dang! That guy must be able to inhale enough oxygen for three people!"
I tried to find a picture online to illustrate this view. No luck, probably because photo editors the world over hit DELETE about half a second after seeing any photo taken from that angle.
This was the best — or worst — I could find:
Let's look at him a little closer, shall we?
There is enough room in there for the entire Russian Olympic team, equipment and all.
