rhythmic gymnastics, in a nutshell

Wave the apparatus (ring, club, ribbon, whatever) in the air, put your foot on your head.

Or, maybe your head on your calf.

Or, do hyper-splits in the air.

If I could have found the picture where the gymnast was putting her foot on her own throat, I would have used that. When A saw that picture, she said "I thought that was someone *else's* foot."

My apologies to the gymnasts, who are certainly very flexible and sparkly and dance real pretty, but it really does look like a sport dreamed up by dirty old men.
