O Canada . . .

There's been a lot of talk by Olympic commentators about the new Canadian speed skating uniforms. Apparently, they are an engineering phenomenon and are the most aerodynamic uniforms ever. But, seriously . . . who the heck designed these things??

I'm sure they're aerodynamic. I'm sure they're scientifically ground-breaking. But they make the athletes look like speed skating scares the crap out of them . . . literally.

So someone needs to find out who designed them. Who said "We need more than just a maple leaf. We need to think ootside the box. We should go edgy. We should put a black stain on the back of the uniform that starts JUST under the butt and kinda blobs downward. Then we should smear the edges of the blob to give it that natural look. Think 'fecal explosion.'"?

The number of people who had to approve this design for their national Olympic team is mind-boggling.

O Canada . . . what were you thinking?

Amen! I've been thinking the same thing since the first time I saw them! I'm still laughing about the "fecal explosion"!

Obviously the designer has had experience with the Alli weight loss drug. You know the one that recommends that you wear dark pants until you know how your body handles the drug.

so I was going to comment about the brown stains on their outfits before I read your blog...haha. That was a horrible design and I think I would quit before having to wear such an outfit.
