THE OLYMPICS

Yesterday evening, Susie and I went to a neighbor's apartment to welcome the launching of the London Olympics.  Regaled by several kinds of cheshire cheese, ale, mead [no kidding], clotted cream, Scotch Eggs, and Nutella, we watched what must be the weirdest opening ceremonies ever.  Did I see the Queen of England escorted in by James Bond?

Thus far, today, I have seen ping pong, duelling, beach volleyball, and badminton.  There has to be something better than that happening, right?  At the next Olympic Games, a new sport is going to be introduced:  Free Style Men's Making a Fool of Oneself.  Mitt Romney is already the odds on favorite to take gold.

I despise the London Olympics
We've all had to foot the bill through our taxes and yet the cream events and moneyspinners are ALL being kept in the South East
These are English Olympics, not ours
Roll on 2014!
