WTF Wednesday: Aerobics Record, Shot Put Bribe

Hi Wednesday! Hi WTF!

Every koala bear needs a doll, and every old lady needs a figurine to commemorate them.

Appalachian spring...looks pretty depressing.

I love 80s workout records, and I love the name Joanie.

Last but not least, with all the Olympic fever going on, I was reminded of the time that I threw the shot put for the high school winter track team.  As I recall, my teacher was the coach and they had no girl shot putters that season and I was offered a 100 on a math test in exchange for competing - if I could huck it even 10 feet, our team might get a point or two in the meet, better than zero.  In retrospect, it was a corrupt bribe, and I am no better than crooked shillary, but it makes a WTF picture.

As with all wtf wednesdays, there are no answers, only questions leading to more questions.

Soooooooooooooooooooooooo. How long was your farthest shot put?!

i want to say it was 25 feet and a couple inches? the first number that popped in my head was 29, but that might have been my goal, because after research i see that today's shot putting girls hit about 33 feet, and there's no way i was there. i wasn't terrible but i wasn't good either.

You can't compare yourself to crooked shillary in any way. You have no problem telling the truth. If she had the shotput story it would have taken the FBI and Congress to try to drag it out of her and then she still wouldn't have admitted it.

hahahahaha! good point, anonymous! but bernie would have said no, keep the 100 on the test, i'll put the shot out of the goodness of my heart.
