London Mayor Describes Female Beach Volleyball Players As Wet Otters?

Perhaps the mayor of London isn’t the best at describing words, or adjectives to the late person. His description of the female contestants in beach volleyball were a bit, odd.

Female beach volleyball players have been described as a lot of things. Beautiful, athletic, sexy, hot, wet otter like – wait, what was that last one?

Oh, that’s just how the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, described how the players looked. In a piece he wrote for the Telegraph, he said:

As I write these words there are semi-naked women playing beach volleyball in the middle of the Horse Guards Parade immortalised by Canaletto. They are glistening like wet otters and the water is plashing off the brims of the spectators’ sou’westers. The whole thing is magnificent and bonkers.

That is bonkers! It so so happens to be his 19th ‘Jolly Good Reason To Feel Cheerful About The Olympics’. All in all, not a bad reason to be excited. Perhaps saying that they looked like wet otters, which is nothing more than a swimming rat, was not the greatest choice. How about mermaids? There has to be something more majestic than a wet otter.
