Apos: Obvious tag is busy insulting non-vegetarians,the British monarchy and humanity at large....
Snapper Carr: I'm not so sure about jingoistic but I can't recall an Olympics that was so cynically corporate as this one.
Trocadero: Snapper Carr: I'm not so sure about jingoistic but I can't recall an Olympics that was so cynically corporate as this one.1996 was probably the worst. Not surprising, holding it in Atlanta.
Triumph: Sorry Subby, but he's right and it ain't just Britain. We landed a SUV-sized rover on Mars today and it was the fifth item on the NBC Nightly News. The Olympics has always been ruling-class propaganda theater. Do you know who invented the torch relay? That's right - him.
limboslam: It sounds like he's truly sick of the disparity between what England is and what it seems to be portraying itself to the world.
Triumph: Do you know who invented the torch relay? That's right - him.
lamecomedian: "The 'dazzling royals' have, quite naturally, hi-jacked the Olympics for their own empirical needs,"That word - I do not think it means what you think it means.
FunkOut: Apos: Obvious tag is busy insulting non-vegetarians,the British monarchy and humanity at large....You forgot wearing a live cat as a hat.I wonder if he put lipstick on the cat's bottom beforehand.
Methadone Girls: Jingoistic? What the hell is jingoistic?? Farking, where's my dictionary....the belligerent spirit or foreign policy of jingoes; chauvinismsays the man who compared the massacre at the Youth Labour Party camp on Utøya Island in Norway to what happens at McDonalds and KFC every day.

SunTzuX: How did he get out of his Tupperware?
BigJake: Morrissey has lost his goddamned mind and so have a lot of Farkers, apparently. The Olympics have always been an opportunity for the host country to toot its own horn, and they've usually done so with gusto. BFD.
The All-Powerful Atheismo: You know who else used the Olympics to toot his own horn?
BigJake: The All-Powerful Atheismo: You know who else used the Olympics to toot his own horn?Every leader of every country who's held it ever?
Jim_Callahan: Yeah, because it's not like the entire bloody point of the Olympics is to allow nations a forum for international competition and grandstanding without the traditional genocide or anything.Christ, you get together with your neighbors for weekly poker as a replacement for shooting rifles at each others' windows a year ago and some stupid biatch can't do anything but complain that the host enjoys pointing out his nice new window-frames while he's dealing.Morrisey is that biatch today, apparently. Thanks for being one of the reasons we can't have nice things, asshole.
