Paul Hunt comedy... uneven bars, brings back bad memories

YouTube: 1981 Nadia Tour gymnastics Paul Hunt comedy uneven bars

This routine is comedy, but unfortunately it means a little more to me.

When I was young I loved gymnastics and was enrolled in a gymnastics program in Edmonton. My (female) instructor insisted that everyone learn the uneven bars, even the boys. I tried it a few times but it was understandably painful. I begged the instructor to let me skip the uneven bars, I said I'd do anything else she wanted but not that. She refused to give me an exemption. I was so upset about it, it led to me quitting gymnastics.
