  "I thought she was awful.

  I don't understand it when people say she was a great dancer.

  To me it was absolutely unbelievable - a drunken, fat woman who for hours was rolling around like a pig. It was the most awful thing.

  It is unbelievable how people can be hypnotized so nobody dares to say what he thinks. I don't believe she ever danced well.

  She was probably a nice juicy girl when she was young...

  There was no reason to be so bad at forty. I can't believe she was excellent when she was thirty. Those ten years couldn't make such a difference."
