Olympic streaker hits the ice in a pink tutu

Now that they’re almost over, we can admit it: The Winter Olympics are – *whispers* – kind of boring.

It’s not that they’re uneventful. It’s not that the athletes aren’t incredible, powerful, graceful, sometimes heroic. It’s not that the races aren’t dramatic. It’s just that most of them, for the uninitiated viewer, are repetitive and monotonous compared to other sports.

But you know what’s not monotonous? A streaker rushing the ice during a speed skating event in a tutu and monkey sock.
