Putting the Nasty in Namaste

Myself: Has any other reader noticed the remarkable similarity between the Ardha Matsyendrasana of Rickson Gracie, the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu master, and that of Bikram Choudhury, founder of the eponymous hot yoga system?

Prodnose: The point of this is?

Myself: I've committed myself to Bikram yoga for three months at least, so I'm trying to persuade myself it's badass rather than a bit wet.

Prodnose: Well Rickson is badass, no argument, but I think you've got a hill to climb. Further I'm not entirely convinced that pasting photos of flexed semi-naked men into the blog is necessarily contributing to a rugged vibe. Is that patouchi oil I can smell?

Myself: Don't knock the cosmetics man, even Tyler Durden was in the soap business:

Who you were in yoga club is not who you were in the rest of the world. A guy came to yoga club for the first time, his ass was a wad of cookie dough. After a few weeks, he was carved out of ....... bamboo.
