The Norweigan curling team will be wearing crazy outfits again this year. Which is cute, I guess. What’s not cute? Those three-inch-too-long pants. Hem ‘em, boys.

(In all sincerity, it points to a good rule: if you’re going to do something ridiculous, do it right. Poor taste requires unimpeachably excellent taste.)
