What were those masked men saying?

19th January 2001 at 00:00
In the Big Picture on reindeer racing in Lapland (January 5), Ted Wragg, as always, offered many worthy teaching hints but perhaps missed the possible humour.

The two masked, reindeer-pulling skiers seemed to be staring at the reindeer' backsides. I'm sure pupils and teachers could add their own captions.

My suggestion? One reindeer is saying to the other: "These Ofsted inspectors certainly look into everything."
