Curling will probably always make me think of this scene in "Help." It's the one where the Beatles are supposedly curling (is that the right phrase?) and George inadvertently sends a booby-trapped curling stone their way. After he realizes it he says,
"It's a fiend-ish thingy!"
Followed by the Beatles running off while the stone explodes. Apparently, while filming a take for this scene a few of the Beatles ran about a mile. I think it had to do with something they smoked or something...
And that is why I cannot watch curling without giggling.
*I harbor no ill-will towards the Beatles, none at all.
