Sometimes I wish Ursula would get out there in front of the cameras more often. There's just not enough Ursulaproduct! But then I have to remind myself that, as the AntiCondi, she has better things to do than to traipse from vapid photo-op to vapid photo-op. And that is, after all, a big part of why we love the affable Austrian giantess. We also love her brave, counter-intuitive choice of variegated red and white stripes. It works! Well done, Ursula!
But do you notice something extraordinary about the above picture? Everybody's wearing a scarf... except for Ursula! It's backwards day! Fun!
