Dude, what the fuck is wrong with Australians?
The unlikely, and dangerous, sport of ottering is largely unknown outside the ranks of its participants. In fact, it is possible that there has only been three occasions on which it has been mentioned in the press.
The secretive nature of the sport may be due to the fact that it is performed by journalists...following the release of the Australian Commonwealth Government budget...The 'standard' otter is performed by sliding down a staircase on one's stomach. The 'double' Otter is the same as the standard, but with a passenger or rider aboard. This method carries a higher risk of injury for both parties. The 'power' otter is assumed to be the same as the 'standard' otter but with a running start.
I really wish they did this in the US. "Get off, Will, it's O'Reilly's turn!"
