Is it just me, or is anyone else completely bored already with all the Olympic hype? I admit, I am not a sporty person and the only sport I like is Formula 1 and Wimbledon Tennis, which involves the art of sitting on my botty and watching on TV.
Why do they need so many people to run round the UK with the Olympic torch? Why don't they just ask a few really fast athletes to do it? They'd get it done much quicker that way. It makes me laugh they way it is all taken so seriously. I mean, does a flame really need so many bodyguards? It is taken so seriously that a woman in Lincolnshire, who wrote something on her Facebook wall about putting the flame out with her son's water pistol, had the police at her door questioning her as if she was a terrorist. What is that all about? It begs the question, out of the squillions of Facebook accounts, how on earth did they manage to home in on that woman's FB page so quickly, especially if it was not an 'open' account?
I think it's hilarious the way that some games are now an Olympic sport, like Ping Pong for example. Imagine the ancient Greeks playing Ping Pong (hey, Achilles, the ball was in!...You cannot be serious, Zeus!)...or Beach Volley Ball for that matter (Athena, you great numptie, you've broken my nail with that throw. That bloody ball is heavy!).
I know that security has to be tight for the Olympics but to put surface to air missiles on the top of a block of flats in London, and then tell the world on mainstream media that they are doing it, is just beyond a joke don't you think? If anyone was thinking of attacking, they would just have to look for that particular block of flats on Google Maps. Why advertise it to the world? What about the poor b****ds that live in the flats?
Anyway, just had to get it off my chest, so to speak. The Printemps household will definitely be an Olympic-free zone this summer. I'd rather watch paint dry....in fact, maybe I'll just do that.
Squeak soon, mes amis.
