The Olympic Flame, Mo and a Moth
As you all know
(well , I
think they have forgotten the rest of us now) has been hosting this Olympic
sports thing and it appears that the British have been doing remarkably well.
Even today, as we come to the end of the penultimate day the Brits are still
winning a few medals. Tomorrow is the grand ending with what appears to be a
few celebs, well I think they are celebs. I suspect that the trendy thing to do will now
to be seen hanging out doing a bit of sport with a medallist saying things like
HAY WE LIKE TO JOG WITH MO JUST TO STAY IN TRIM. London
Anyway I did my bit today; after my rather disastrous bonfire yesterday I had another go today. Now this is something I could win medals for in fact I could melt them if I wanted so I made sure that today’s fire was good, very good and that it had at least a full 15ft of flame at times, and all done with non toxic regulation garden stuff and some hedge cutting, no cheating with accelerants and plastic or cardboard. No one wants to be banned on the last full day of competition do they?
I could tell we are near the end of the Olympics because they are running out of sports, for example that modern pentathlon, WHAT? Fencing, swimming, show jumping and running and shooting…….? Yes OK but WHAT?
Then there was that 200m canoe race for one person and then pairs WHAT? How mad is that. You can imagine someone saying ooooo lets go for a canoe trip and they shot off like a motorboat but only as far as the other bank and then they say to you that was fun what’s next before you have even managed to get in a canoe. And I’m sorry but the BMX just looks silly.
Anyway the British have done well, and all we need to get through now is the closing ceremony without blowing it somehow, and we can send all those BBC sports reporters back into the darker recesses of obscurity telling them, job well done mate but here is your P45 and thanks….. And I can be grumpy again……….. WELL COOL and tinker in a shed with my new steam powered pole for the pole vault ready for next time…..
I saw one of these today too,
But he is still quite safe, and now called MO
HAHAHAHHAHAh hah ah ah hah ah ahah ha hha
