He used a similar technique to win the World Wife Drowning Championships back in '08

"The men can carry their teammate in various ways, though a popular method is for the woman to hang upside-down with her legs around the male contestant's shoulders."

Article fails to note that this style of wife carrying is called the "Estonian Carry".  Estonians have dominated the competition in recent years.  I'm surprised to see a Finnish couple win.

More important, the article fails to mention that the prize for winning the wife carrying championships is your wife's weight in beer.

I thought he was trying to cure his neck-rash with her thin, blonde brillo-pad bush.

Carry my wife, please!

I carry my wife everywhere, but she keeps finding her way home.

My wife said she wanted to be carried somewhere she'd never been before. I said, how about the kitchen?
