Word of the Day: Buksekrise

Remember the Norwegian men’s Olympic curling team? The guys who prefer go-to-hell pants? They encountered a Buksekrise (trouser crisis) after being forced into a tiebreak match with Great Britain today, a match they didn’t account for in their wardrobe planning. Each team member brought nine pairs of pants (the hubris!) and in their tenth match were forced into repeated wearing of their most abstract expressionist pair. Alas, the Brits, who dress like they’re working the concession stand, won the day, eliminating fancy pants from this year’s Olympics.
