Mrtraveler01: tuffsnake: geom_00: WHAM! I HATE YOU...ALL because of Last Christmas!!Did you give them your heart last Christmas?Yeah, but then they gave it away.
Practical_Draconian: We'd be arguing dick sizes in the open.
Quintessential_Cynic: Queen....John Lennon....George Michael?
texdent: What's with the light bulb hat people?
Pontious Pilates: Pretty weaksauce closing ceremonies so far. Nothing will ever top the Canadagasm in Vancouver two years ago. Giant inflatable beavers, Katherine O'Hara. They had it all, and it was so deliciously cheesy.
ManateeGag: SEPHIROTH KILLS DUMBLEDORE!
TheSneakerWhore: Where tha white wimmen at?
Earguy: Does anyone remember laughter?
Mrtraveler01: Did anyone see this? I mean normally I take the Daily Fail with a grain of salt. But really?
LadyBelgara: Gosling: So we get The Who now, finally?Yep. About damn time, and at least the commentators shut the fark up.I love Tommy so damn much.
LadyBelgara: ...so the news in Detroit just described a wrestler's win as "landing on top". Is that what they call it now?
tlchwi02: after watching that show for the first 2 commercials breaks, i can not imagine a world where laughter is possible. i have switched to some celtic womans group on PBS who are singing of the sadness of the irish famines. and yet, it still lightens my heart more than animal practice.
star_topology: paj: The chick in the red on Animal Practice is hawt.You're not helping.
TommyymmoT: texdent: Chick in blue dress looks familiar.Hong Kong. New Years Eve party 2009.You were pretty drunk.

tudorgurl: Wait...what the hell am I watching right now? I'm confused.
melewen: Will you PLEASE tell me the name of the band on the stage.Who
WhyteRaven74: Oh god a commercial for Joe Walsh...the politician...
themeaningoflifeisnot: I'm gonna get me a job as a condom wrangler for the Rio Olympics.
make me some tea: They didn't bleep that out on the BBC. I guess Americans aren't ready for adulthood.It's after 10pm, that would've been just fine with the FCC too.
"Life's a piece of shiat, when you look at it..."
DamnYankees: Here's my hope - they close this ceremony with Always Look on the Bright Side of Life. Make it happen, Britain.
thecpt: Hi-C yah?
Earguy: Wow, the Black Eyed Peas improved!
TheBaldOneMpls: I like that Fatboy Slim thinks he's contributing.
sarahthustra: she should probably have that rash looked at.
Earguy: This chick has the worst herpes I've ever seen.
FriarReb98: make me some tea: thing is, he's weird enough to pull this off, as much as I hate the guyI don't hate him. I'm just pissed that he got Katy and not me.
Pontious Pilates: DamnYankees: WhyteRaven74: Practical_Draconian: Istanbul, Madrid or Tokyo.Prolly Tokyo.I disagree. They tend to rotate by region. From 1980 onwards its been:Europe, North America, Asia, Europe, North America, Oceania, Europe, Asia, Europe, South AmericaI think North America will get it in 2020. Probably Chicago or New York, maybe Mexico City or Toronto.Toronto is putting a bid together for 2024. And I read a Yahoo article recently that says some local politicians in Toronto are considering a joint bid with Niagara Falls/Buffalo, NY. As a native WNYer, i think that would be cool as shiat, for the first international games to be held across the world's longest friendly border. BUT, I can't imagine who among anyone involved would say "You know, Toronto made a good case for themselves in their last two bids, but you know what they're missing that would put them over the top? BUFFALO."

Farksteron: Next on Fox: "Are the British Godless liberals that want to destroy you? No wonder they didnt like our hero Mitt"
geom_00: WHAM! I HATE YOU...ALL because of Last Christmas!!
Earguy: Shuichi: Did Bob Costas sneakily mention all the sex in the Olympic Village?14 condoms per athlete at the Olympic village. And I assume Gabby Douglas didn't use any, leaving more for others.
WhyteRaven74: Mrtraveler01: Nah, they'll just show Sugarloaf Mountain and Christ the Redeemer a million times like they do in all the tourism ads for Brazil.Yep. And pretend like the favelas don't exist. And Brazilians have such lovely attitudes those who live in the favelas.....
geom_00: DamnYankees: Three and a half years until the next summer Olympics. Rio better bring it. I have no idea what to expect from them.Tits, Strippers, and Blow.

rhiannon: /don't know who Jessie J isbutt I am totally behind her
texdent: Makes you wonder who farked who at the Olympic village.
Gaylord Q. Tinkledink: Still better than Vancouver. Worst Olympics ever.
melewen: The Bestest: "Have you heard of 'One Direction'?"I'm work in an elementary/middle school, so yes, I have unfortunately heard of One Direction. Of course, I can't be too hard on them. Every generation has its boy band and mine was NKOTB...
DamnYankees: This is a very confusing ceremony.
awfulperson: It's called MY COUNTRY 'TIS OF THEE.
ds_4815: /A certain British comedian also makes a musical appearance
IMDWalrus: 12349876: The good music outweighs the bad, so have the mute button ready. But knowing NBC you may need it on mute the whole time because they commercial the good stuff.If NBC messes with my Who and George Michael, there will be bloodshed.
