In the past Words to Bumble posited that Olympic speed skater Shani Davis (you know, they guy who called Stephen Colbert a jerk, which was deftly tuned into comedic fodder by the Report newsman) did not seem to have  a sense of humor. Based on the images posted by Universal Sports recently, it turns out that maybe he does.

Davis donned a kilt and hammed it up a bit for the cameras at the “Dressed to Kilt” Charity Fashion Show sponsored by Glenfiddich in New York City on April 5th. The theme, unsurprisingly was “Mad for Scotland;” the funds were raised for the Wounded Warrior Project (www.woundedwarriorproject.org), the Paralyzed Veterans of America (www.pva.org) and the Erskine Hospital in Scotland (www.erskine.org.uk).

At any rate my point is that Shani Davis strolled down the runway in a kilt and velvet jacket and vest with his gold medal and then struck a speed skating pose for the ages. Being an Olympian must be such fun.

And who else was there? A sports-minded Mike Myers showed a bit of blindingly white leg as he crept down the runway in a Canadian hockey jersey and kilt combination–naturally. Somewhat inexplicably the Geico caveman was also in attendance, posing his way down the runway in full formal kilt attire, complete with a heraldic lion and black tie.




Enter the upper echelons of the Hollywood elite:  Lady and Sir Sean Connery– everyone’s favorite Scot/James Bond–also made an appearance, donning their plaids and being Scottish in general. Obviously. The whole thing would have been null without Sir Sean.
