I am amazed to see that reality follows fiction
once again. It has to do with a joke entry
where I had Sir David Attenborough
doing a documentary on human activity.
And now, he copied my idea, in almost
the exact same words.
So, for the uninitiated, Attenborough is
a famous animal documentary guy whose
voiceovers and speaking style are famous,
hence my joke doc, below. I must say
that curling is funnier.
So, last month, I wrote:
and more specifically:
What's this? The ultimate in insults. She is offering her
buttocks in order for them to be kissed by the
opposition. As David Attenborough would say
"watch the defiant look on the face of the female
exposing her genitals, in a sign of superiority"
Now, the story, video and transcript from Huffington Post:
"Attenborough’s iconic voice gently guides viewers through a
face-off between the United States and Great Britain. At the
beginning of the video (above), he says, “Watch as the alpha
female displays her dominance over the herd by tapping
the end of the frisking broom to check for rogue insects.”"

Sir David Attenborough Narrates Women's Olympic Curling Event, And It Is Pure Gold
| by Emily Thomas
Sir David Attenborough, a legend in nature documentary narration, was recently asked by BBC Radio 1 to narrate a women’s curling event from the Winter Games.
Suffice it to say we’re very grateful he obliged.
Attenborough’s iconic voice gently guides viewers through a face-off between the United States and Great Britain. At the beginning of the video (above), he says, “Watch as the alpha female displays her dominance over the herd by tapping the end of the frisking broom to check for rogue insects.”
As Great Britain's Anna Sloane casts her team’s stone across the ice, Attenborough explains her movements in his signature soothing tone: “Off she goes, gently, but flamboyantly launching the oversized walnut down the frozen river.”
But that's not all.
After Sloane's teammates take over control of the stone’s path by sweeping the ice ahead of it to land in the "nest" he notes, "The frisking is frantic and often futile, making no difference to the success of the net thrust, but it is playful, all part of what makes this game the sliding curlers play so magical."
Attenborough, you’re magical.
Canada will face off against Sweden in the women’s curling finals on Thursday, Feb. 20.
