    I could really use a laugh today. Can anyone think of funny things that have happened in figure skating and perhaps post a Youtube link, if available?

    Julia Lautowa's fall in her free skate @ 2003 Worlds. She took it in stride, and laughed it off. Ditto for Sean Rabbitt @ 2011 US Nationals (during the short program, I think).

    Plushy's "Sex Bomb" exhibition from 2001 Worlds

    At 2008 Nationals, two junior ice dancers from the Broadmoor club (Tim McKernan and maybe Zach Donahue) dressed in Blades of Glory costumes sat in the stands and eventually joined the sweepers to skate a lap in between skaters in the junior pairs event. They were hilarious!

    Bechke totally checks out Petrov's butt (twice) before skating at the 1994 US Pros. I can't post links (newb) but look up "Bechke & Petrov (RUS) - 1994 U.S. Open Professionals, Pairs' Artistic Program" on 3Axel1996's youtube channel.

    Also the Canadian SOI version of Spaghetti Western (also on youtube). I can watch it over and over again all day.

    I think anytime a skater gets given a doll/toy that is bigger than them thrown out in the ice and they play with it in the K&C

    I spoke to Tim and Dean after they got back from Nationals, and they couldn't believe they got close to the ice let alone on it. After the stunt they ran into the pres of US Figure Skating and they said he just chuckled. They thought for sure they were in trouble. But the judges were laughing hard over it. NBC wanted them to recreate it but there wasn't time and they never got close to the ice other then when they were skating after that.

    :lol:

    Also, #tobelwuzrobbed - that mark from the USA judge was a disgrace. Plus he should have got bonus points for Austin Powers and audience laughter. And not being too put off by the fire alarm that no-one even blinked at!

    Ashley Wagner's hair coming undone at the 2013 WTT, and she just laughs and makes a joke of it. :)

    On the Canadian SOI version of the "Fun and Games" Olympic parody group number, Brian Orser ("Swifty") is introducing the judges by saying they're "unbiased, knowledgeable and unfailingly fair" - at which point Lloyd Eisler mouths to the audience, "bull$hit." It's not on youtube but you can download it on Kurtfiles.
