Those Brits be Crazy


With the games starting tomorrow the onslaught of human interest stories has already begun, take for instance this story about Tom Daley, the 14 year old(!), British diving prodigy who can’t dive until he sees his stuffed animal monkey sitting on top of his bag. But that’s not totally ridiculous, after all, he is only 14 years old and being in the Olympics is pretty heady stuff. That is not the case with Cassie Patten, 20, a member of the swimming team who can’t leave home without first arranging her stuffed bear and stuffed clown on her bed. Who stuffs a clown? Who stuffs a clown and leaves them on their bed? Doesn’t that sound like a person who might be dangerously unhinged mentally?

    Why is that medal shaped like a dried hunk of dog crap?

    Cute. Reminds me of how I need to have a Chicago-style hot dog dangling JUST out of arms-reach in order to run long-distance.

Please join us in this cause and sign the petition below so we can all share in this special and fantastic moment of baseball history. THANKS!
SIGN THE PETITION HERE! AND PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND PASS THIS ALONG!
