The Opening Ceremony of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, President Putin and a Small Chicken.
The winter Olympic opening ceremony has been on the go today and it was rather a grand affair for a winter Olympics as in general they tend to be more friendly and low key than the summer ones. But of course because they are in
rumour have abounded that President Putin was keen to put on (Putin . . . . .
. Put on . . . . . . . HA HAH HA H HAH
hah ha haha ha ha ha hah ha ha) a good show. And I would have to say some of it
was very spectacular indeed as it showed the story of Russia Russia through history, a bit like the London
Olympics showed .
The odd thing with these though is that it sort of ended with the breaking up
of the USSR and then came to an abrupt holt in a sort of AH . . . . . . .DAMN .
. . . . I know we can have some Seagulls
. . . no hang on Doves, Doves is good or Swans folk like Swans ……..
Interestingly it appears that Britain Sochi (the place
in Russia, not the Japanese
seafood) is one of the warmer parts of and has no snow which might
make things a bit tricky. Russia
Anyway as you know the chicken loves these things and only the other day said he planned to fly over and sneak in; and much like in London the Russians also would prefer not to have chickens running about, partly because it is already complicated enough with Seagulls, Doves and Swans all over the place. But the chicken is a resourceful beast and 40,000 armed troops and folk dressed as white rabbits were never going to keep it away from meeting the main man.
I was able to capture the moment on the TV as out of the shadows the chicken moves in closer to see President Putin close up. The President gritting his teeth, but clearly unhappy that the massed security forces failed to get the chicken. Although if you look at the picture closely you will notice that he is cunningly using his third arm (not many folk know he has three arms) to try and grab the chicken and have him (her) dealt with.
