08/09/12 Grif.Net Blog – Olympics from Around the World

[Gleaned from late night TV, talk radio, newspapers, NBC and any place else
I could find to “borrow” humor.]

Saw that POLAND just won the country’s first gold medal. They were so happy,
they had it bronzed.

The FRENCH cycling team complained that their bicycles did not perform well
at the Velodrome because they were two tired.

The press discovered the entrant in the Javelin competition from SCOTLAND
was legally blind! He said he started the sport after playing bagpipes and
realized “You don’t have to be very good to get everyone’s attention.”

At the Olympic sailing venue, AUSTRALIA took the gold, ITALY took the silver
and the SOMALIANS took a middle aged couple off the beach and are looking
for a $10,000 ransom.

(On a side note, the head of the SOMALI Olympic squad has apologized to
officials on behalf of his team after realizing that shooting and sailing
were two separate events.)

MEXICO has announced the reason for its poor performance at the 2012 games.
In the news release it stated, ‘Pretty much everyone who can run, jump, or
swim has already left the country.’

My own state of WYOMING was represented in the Olympics by Slim Jones who
turned up for the Olympics with some barbed wire under his arm, and came in
third in fencing.

And speaking of the USA, our soon-to-be-President Mitt Romney and his wife
were in London as Ann’s horse competed. Back home, the maid they hired to
clean house while they were at the Olympics was evidently only second best.
She just walked off with the silver.
