Tonya Harding: Land Speed Record Holder!

Tonya Harding - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



What's New

"Tonya Harding has been at the Bonneville Salt Flats this past week, for Speed Week. She wasn't there as a spectator, but as a driver, competing in the Vintage Gas Coup Class.

On Monday, Tonya did a qualifying run, of 79.1 mph. On Tuesday, she did a second run, at 83.618 mph, establishing a record of 81.37 mph, from the two runs. She is the first person to drive a 1931 vintage gas coup on the Salt Flats, to establish a land speed record. Also, this is the first time that a vintage gas coup has competed at a SCTA-BNI sanctioned event.

The car, named Licket-Split, is owned by Yacolt WA resident Pete Richardson. It's a 1931, stock body Model A coup, powered by a 1932 4 cylinder flathead, with few modifications.

Once again, Tonya Harding is in the record books for being the first to accomplish something no one else has done. She is also the first American woman to successfully perform the very difficult triple axel during figure skating competitions."

I think she's also the first female figure skater to have her honeymoon sex tapes posted on the internet.

Re: Tonya Harding: Land Speed Record Holder!

You know whats weird? i always kind of liked her, she was
really funny on that The Smoking Gun Presents: World's Dumbest!
show about people that have accidents, and get caught on tape doing
stupid things.

Thats strange coincidence, the girl she attacked back
in the Olympics Nancy Kerrigan is in the news today, her brother
killed her dad, i kid you not.

Check out National Lampoon's Attack of the 5 ft 2 Women. Great stupid movie!

Quote:
This movie is a parody surrounding the events of Tanya Harding and Lorena Bobbit. The names in the film are changed to protect the anonymity of the actual people to Tonya Hardley and Lenora Babbit! The movie is set up like a double feature. First, we see the climb of figure skater Tonya Hardley, who thinks that she will be number 1 after destroying rival figure skater Nancy Cardigan. She hires hitmen to do her dirty work and the plan falls apart from there. A memorable musical scene takes place as well as one of the most unforgettable scenes with a stuffed bunny that I've ever seen!

The next story recaptures the tale of Lenora and Juan Wayne Babbit. Titled, "He Never Give Me Orgasm," this heartbreaking tale of a woman who just wants to be loved unfolds. Alcohol, sex, and the chopping of male genitalia are highlighted here.

All in all, it made me laugh. You can't sit and analyze a movie like this. You just need to watch it and laugh at the sheer stupidity. Watch it with friends, you'll be calling out lines for days!

Re: Tonya Harding: Land Speed Record Holder!

It is interesting that Tonya and Nancy are in the news again today, but for different reasons than in 1994.

Re: Tonya Harding: Land Speed Record Holder!

She shows so little class. She's lives in my county and over the years she in some trouble or another. I think every one rolls their eyes when she's in the paper here. DUI, not paying her rent and the landlord eviction process, blah blah blah.
