What Does P.S.I.A. Stand For??? - Page 2
(I guess, that it all depends who you are talking to)
For those delicate of mind, the above is only a play with letters, and NOTHING PERSONAL!
The Plight of PSIAI wrote this long ago, and you can find
it on my website here:
How many skiers does it take to screw in a light bulb? 201. One PSIA director to sit in the dark, 199 Professional Ski Instructors of America to kiss his butt, and one rad som'bitch to make all the turns.
But don't get me wrong. Some of my best friends are PSIA. And if you talk to them, they'll probably tell you jokes I haven't heard yet.
If you've spent any time around the industry, you may have heard these alternative definitions of PSIA:
Pretty Skiing - Inadequate Ability
(backward) A-holes In Stretch Pants
But don't get me wrong-those aren't mine; These are mine:
Pushing Ski Industry Apparel
Pansies Skipping In Arrogance
Pretty Sure I'm Awkward
Perfect Skidding If Anything
Professionally Slow Ice Avoiders
Position Sacred Indicates Asskissing
Parabolic Skis - Idiotic Actions
Powder Scared, Incline Averted
Putrid Skiboot-infusing Aroma
Put Simply, Isn't Alpine
Pole Stuck In Ass
Potent Snowplows, Impotent Athletes
Pigs Skating In Analogy
Patio Skilled Inebriated Alcoholics
Panty Shield Ideal Advertisements
Prattles & Spits in Arguments
Poops Shorts in Avalanches
Posing Self-important Instruction Amateurs
Psychologically Skewed Identity Anxieties
Picabo's Salivating Interest Attempts
Putting Spam Into Action
Profoundly states, "I'm Awesome"

One to actuallly turn the bulb.
Three more to critique the turns.
Paranoid Schizophrenics in Administration
Hmmm... Thread resurrected after 5 years...
But I have no freakin idea how they got in there....
Penniless Skier, Imbibing Anything
