What's going on with Spanish Olympians?
Am I just out of touch with current humor trends or perhaps have I become (shudder) "politically correct?"
Five days ago I panned the Spanish basketball team for apparently mocking stereotypical Oriental physiognomy. Now I read that "Spanish nationalist outrage has risen up at the foreign misinterpretations of this widely practiced gesture of eye-based friendship among Spanish athletic teams" and see the photo above of the Spanish Olympic tennis team posted at the Spanish Tennis Federation website.
