This, right here, is the kind of Olympics I take very seriously. Because I take laughter very seriously. It’s no laughing matter.
Paul Hunt (the woMAN in the video) reminds me of Victor Borge, the legendary pianist and conductor who did such a good job of taking the piss out of classical music and opera. I remember sitting with the family, watching Victor on PBS and laughing until I couldn’t breathe.
And, as we all know, laughter is easily the best antidote for no food or hot water. Aside from food and hot water, of course. But that goes without saying. Even though I just did.
