I've had it up to well past my courtesy level. The IOC needs to be taken down several pegs and drop-kicked into Vancouver Harbor. And I'd like to volunteer to chain their ankles to a cannon before it's done. We can make a new olympic sport of it. And from the growing growl of others who are fed up with being pushed around by these assholes, I know I'm not the only one thinking that.
The International Olympic Committee wants the giant boxing kangaroo flag at the Olympic Athletes Village in Vancouver to come down because it's not an "official Olympic flag." Well, boo hoo.
They're getting, in return, a hefty dose of finger-"pointing" in their direction. Bouquets and singles, all in a row. Even the mayor is on board.
Whose town is this, anyway?
So, here's my support for the Land Down Under: As soon as I can lay my hands on a boxing kangaroo flag, I'm gonna join the parade of fed-up-to-the-teeth CITIZENS of this town against the IOC and its evil intrusions into our lives, and I'm gonna cheer on the Aussies.
And for those who wanted to get me on board for the olympics? There's a saying: Be careful what you ask for; you might get it.
You got it.
UPDATE: Kangaroo can stay, says IOC
