This and every Monday, the Bweinh!tributors, having convened in secret for hours of reasoned debate and consideration, will issue a brief and binding ruling on an issue of great societal import.

This week’s question — What is the most ridiculous Olympic sport?

Steve delivers the ruling of the Council, joined by Connie, Chloe, and Job:

“Rhythmic Gymnastics is a sport that combines elements of ballet, gymnastics, theatrical dance, and apparatus manipulation.” I’m okay with all of that except the “sport” part.


Josh concurs in part, joined by Erin:

Anything that requires a panel of (crooked, biased, pretentious) judges to determine a winner.


MC-B dissents, joined by Kaitlin:

Curling — sliding rocks across ice while people sweep and scream (a lot).


Djere dissents:

“BMX” – Save it for the ‘X’ Games, kid.


Tom joins this dissenting opinion:

Korfball. Any sport whose main distinction is that it is designed “so that both men and women have equal opportunities” is by definition ridiculous.


David joins this dissenting opinion:

Shooting a rifle on skis seems pretty stupid to me.


Mike played no part in the determination of this issue.
