A leading sports physiotherapist has announced that skipping is good for you. Skipping can take two forms, jumping about whilst twirling a rope, or skipping along at a fast clip somewhere between a fast walk and a run.
The physio, John Major-General, learned from a two year scientific research project that skipping provides enormous benefits to the cardio vascular system, is aerobically sound, and also a great help in achieving that 'toned' look.
But apparently, it's not great if you do it in a gay way, whilst, say, negotiating kerb edges, or jumping over puddles. Major-General explains:
"It's vital that skippers not skip in a gay way. By that I mean with the hands held at a 90 degree angle to the forearms and the head flicking from side to side in a rocking motion. It also doesn't help, going: 'Wheeee!' when you're out skipping. People will just laugh at you. And that's demoralising. It's bad enough if you're gay, but if you're straight, having people point at you in the street and laugh; it just wipes out all the benefits. The best way to skip is to leave the gay stuff at home. In the closet. Where it belongs."
