You're Shittin' Me!

Surely this is some sort of ridiculous joke.

We do not need the Olympics in Melbourne and I for one certainly don't want them.

Although I love sport and there are always some incredible individual achievements that occur during the games, the amount spent on the opening and closing ceremonies is surely the BIGGEST waste of money that occurs over any four year period on Earth, it causes major inconvenience for locals and hosting the games is nothing more than a big, throbbing cock for the premier and lord mayor. No city profits from hosting the Olympics. We had the retarded and pointless Commonwealth Games just recently, Sydney had the Olympics in 2000 (Sydney's in the same country as Melbourne) and we (Melbourne) had them back in '56. Once a century is more than enough thanks very much. Not in my back yard. Fuck off.

Oh, and no excuses like 'but it will improve our public transport infrastructure'. That needs to be done anyway, and right NOW, Kosky/Brumby you fucking nincompoops.

Indeed Bob.

Someone tossed around the idea of the Olympics being held in the same city every year, with all member countries contributing to the maintenance of the infrastructure.

Makes sense to me. It would also do away with the profoundly corrupt selection process.

Happy Sunday.

Damn straight we don't.

We need them in Brisbane.

That guy with Brumby needs to get with the times, that salute hasn't been used since the 1936 olympics.

He's waving goodbye to Lynne Kosky.

Rest easy, Bob, there's no way in hell this is going to happen.

The term "shameless beat-up" does suggest itself to me.

I'm glad it's not going to happen, because I was wondering where I would head to if it did.

I will come and stay with you, Ramon, if you are wrong. We are two adults, 3 children and one dog. I'm giving you plenty of notice.

I hope this never happens because I don't want to listen to Melburnians complaining - in their inimitable fashion - about it for the next thousand years

Melba said...

Do we Melburnians have a reputation for being whingers? I thought it was for wearing black. But that's not a negative.

I never knew. But there are worse things I guess.

squib said...

Yes Melba, a typical Melburnian is a tweed-wearing contrary-minded grizzle-guts. But in a delightful and loveable kind of way
