WITH Team GB gold medals harder to come by than a non-McDonald’s branded chip at an Olympic venue, we all need some cheering up – so here’s the best, or perhaps worst, of the web.
I know you’ve all been anxious to hear the Nigeria Olympic song, so here it is – or at least something purporting to be it. I can’t imagine it’s a fake – after all, why would anyone bother?
I was actually the first person on Youtube to watch this, and I hope for humanity that you’re the last. I won’t lie to you: I didn’t – couldn’t – listen all the way through. But that hasn’t stopped the syncopation worming its way into my brain.
Now to introduce the next clip. I feel like some shorter, thinner, less charming version of Chris Tarrant. Or Jeremy Beadle.
A slightly disturbing one this – a look at the security situation surrounding the Olympics, focusing on the ground to air missiles everyone was slightly dubious about when they were announced.
PS It contains a swearword (and an utterly unnecessary one at that) – so it’s only for big boys and girls. I’m trusting you, kids.
Feeling down? Need cheering up? Forget binge eating, spending time with friends or taking exercise – it’s a scientific fact* that looking at the miserable face of an Australian who’s just failed at sport is 14 times more effective at blowing the blues away – so go on, fill your boots:
Did you enjoy the diving yesterday? According to the hollow, smut-driven tittering of Twitter, it looks like the divers themselves were enjoying it rather a lot too:
The beloved Tom Daley and the other one didn’t win a medal in the diving, incidentally, and Stupid Football has an idea why the Chinese did well:
Didier Drogba moves to China, the following month China wins the Olympic diving event... Coincidence?! (@mattlindsay2014)— Stupid Football (@StupidFootball) July 30, 2012
