I've been doing some sledging over the Christmas period. Not the type that involves insulting men in white on the other side of the world, the original one – with snow and gravity, on a hill. Flipping heck, it's lethal. Snow just doesn't lend itself to control, or stopping.
Look, even the polar bears are having problems, in Polar Bear: Spy on the Ice (BBC1). This lady polar bear has climbed up her own little hill to get away from the fella bear who's chasing her. She wants him really: she's just teasing, playing hard to get. Too hard to get though – he can't get anywhere near her and keeps falling over and sliding down on his big hairy white ass. She falls over too, and in the end they're both too knackered and most probably too cold for sex.
