For the luvva Pete, can anyone explain this to me?

Or this?

It’s a world of mystery to me tonight, ladies and gentlemen. A world of mystery.

Tonight on the Olympics there was a guy doing figure-skating whose outfit looked like something from Flash Gordon. He was from Bulgaria. Kind of a big guy, but he gave it the old college try and I found him vastly amusing. It was like watching Richard Kiel figure skate, except done well. Much better than the gold-medal winner, who did a routine based on The Man in the Iron Mask that included swordfighting moves and a few terrible moments that veered close to mime, in which he appeared to be hanging himself. Like I said, a world of mystery.
