Schadenfreude: Splitting the Course Jokes & other Funny Stuff | Sport & Health 25 JAN 2010

Schadenfreude: pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others. It’s human nature really.

You can talk about staged wardrobe ‘malfunctions’ like Janet Jackson’s infamous Superbowl Stunt all day long if you want, but shame poor Scottish bobsledder Gillian Cooke has to take the cake for experiencing one of the most publically embarrassing (thanks YouTube!) wardrobe malfunctions for quite some time! :)

Team mate of British bobsledder Nicola Minichiello, this two-women bobsleigh team has already tasted success by taking gold at the FIBT World Championships 2009 in Lake Placid, New York. However, it is without a doubt that the cold fateful day on January 16th 2010 will be the day Gillian remembers most in her bobsledding career…

(Can’t help but wonder – amongst all that cold snow and ice, shouldn’t bobsledders be wearing slightly more… well thermal underwear? O.o)

    I just waited a million years for that to load on this damn proxy but that was totally worth it. The poor girl :/ Underwear chicken!

  • Apparently one guy commented it looked a bit like Barney’s teeth with a bit of liquorice stuck in between! Shame, the bad camera angle really did give her quite a bit of extra booty to work with! :)

    Ah man, that’s funny! :) Wish I could know what those guys in the background were thinking at the time!

  • They were probably thinking two things, though not both at once. The first being, “man that’s funny” and the second being “man, nice ass”. This I guarantee! :)

    Yeah should have known – Guys are far to simple creatures to think anything more advance than this! ;)

  • Yup. Funny, sex, beer and comic books – that about sums up all men! :P
