She would still be a figure skater, but then she took a police baton to the knee.

/Yes, I know that was Nancy Kerrigan
//It was the first joke that came to mind before I remembered

Good for her. I see no problem with this. Figure skaters work hella hard and have a hell of a lot of discipline, and she obviously worked hard to get her degree so she could qualify for a job like this. I predict she'll be quite good at it. Good luck to her.

I used to work with a Mike Kwan. He was no figure skater.
 
2012-12-09 09:16:27 AM
Kwan? That doesn't sound like a Real American. I'm afraid gonna need to see her birth certifict, or preferably her boobies.

It actually makes me really happy to see her doi g this rather than, say, a sadly declining career doing Disney on Ice for the next twenty years

Good for her. I hope the transition to a desk job doesn't turn her into a triple salchow.

Clearly this 0000bama is doing this for two reasons:

1. To make the gullible Asian-Americans think he will buy them gifts like he has the blacks and the poor (a.k.a. the 99%).

2. To keep everyone's focus away from the fact that 00bama is takin' our guns!!!

Please, don't change his name so carelessly in the same post. 0000bama or 00bama?

I prefer 0.00004%bama myself, for his getting us sheeple to believe that 0.00004% voter fraud isn't a credible threat.

It should obligate you to invite your hand to a pants party.

Will her territory be the west side?

Kwan: Are you guys talking about the west side?
Gill: No, Michelle! I'm... Afraid of you.

This is very relevant to my interests because:

1. I am moving to D.C. next week
2. I will be working across the street from the State Department
3. I've got a thing for East Asian women

Just imagine the linoleum in the halls and breakroom if they hired Natalie Gulbis.

A 180? That's it? Not even a flip jump or an Axel?

This is far better than guest appearances on the The Love Boat or a judge on Skating with the Stars or something. It's nice to see people doing something useful.

Don't turn into a stalker. She would crush your head between her thighs.

She coulda joined Tonya Harding on World's Dumbest....

Yeah, it definitely sounds like a win/win situation.

No, Obama's reasonable facsimile concubine. Obama figured he wouldn't be able to tap the ass of that Thailand chick he was oogling at, so he found another slant eyed, hot poopered Asian looking broad he would have a better chance of playing finger-snatch with.

whatsupchuck: /pronounced "sow-cow"


I don't know this for certain, but I always figured that particular pronunciation came from one announcer with a speech impediment. Only language I'm aware of that pronounces "l" like a "w" is Polish, and Wikipedia tells me that Salchow was Swedish.

It's weird and sometimes annoying how an announcer or two can change usage. Example, absolutely nobody in Wisconsin pronounces Green Bay "GREENbay" like it's all one word. Nobody. Not one. But everybody else seems to say it that way, now.

During the background check:

"A record? Well, I once took off my skate and tried to stab somebody. I'm the only figure skater to ever do that."

I wonder if her fiance comes from a "good family," ($$$$), and attended a prestigious prep school before going to the Ivy League?
