As Britain rejoices over Olympics

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
What do the rest of the world think about GBs attempt to host the "Greatest show on Earth?"

Chinese Press - 'the mayor is like Mr Bean. . . up to all kinds of silliness’

The New York Daily (talking about the UK being gambling mad) - “It’s 8/1 that the wrong national anthem will get played at any medal ceremony. It is 1,000/1 that President Obama or Prime Minister David Cameron will admit that their air forces have seen a UFO over the Olympic Stadium… We are not making this up.”

The French press - "London is a great village fair, and Hyde Park a festive circus"

The Russinas - "'These British spectators seem to come from another planet"

North Korean Press -- The capitalists are donkeys with Gold medals given by rotting monarchy kings and queens as the babies cry about their clown life

I wondered why when i was watch an Olympic event, sometimes there would be few people in the stands. Now I know why. Seems screwed up.

Well, the year of 2004 existed and the Beijing Olympic Games existed, but it seems that the two can't possibly exist in the same line. 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. sorry about the typo.
