Tell Us How You Really Feel, Odd-Bjorn Hjelmeset, With More References To Watching Too Much Porn

What an “odd” duck this guy is! Crazy Norwegians, always cracking wise, acting the fool.

Odd-Bjorn Hjelmeset, as you are of course all aware of, is a Norwegian cross-country skier who competed in the 4 x 10km cross-country relay. But even with the worldwide fame that goes with being a cross-country skier (which is immense, by the way), Hjelmeset may end up becoming much more well known across the internets for the following bizarre, yet glorious, quote:

My name is Odd-Bjoern Hjelmeset. I skied the second lap and I fucked up today. I think I have seen too much porn in the last 14 days. I have the room next to Petter Northhug and every day there is noise in there. So I think that is the reason I fucked up. By the way, Tiger Woods is a really good man.

Gold, baby. Alluding to watching too much porn, fucking up and bringing up some guy named Petter is stupefying. And then the mention of Tiger Woods at the end for no apparent reason really ties it all together quite nicely. Always leave ’em wanting more, they say, and I think Odd-Bjoern exemplified that philosophy brilliantly.
