After all the seriousness and intensity of the last few days, I thought we could use a little humour. If you haven’t been reading the contest entries, you’ve been missing some great comments; here’s one of them from Dennis:
“XC skiing is becoming more popular because . . . It’s Darwinian; natural selection; survival of the fittest. The natural progression of the species, from blob, to ape, to downhill resort skiers*, to neanderthal, to xc skiers. Surely you’ve noticed (i know you have, Bob) how hot cross country skiers are, as a group. Their genes are sought after, and so it continues. Today, Spray River loop, tomorrow the world.”
*Hold your fire! It’s just a friendly jibe. Some of my best friends use chairlifts.
