How does one top The Chinese??

14 Bazillion Dollars spent.  15,000 performers (none repeating). A bird’s nest stadium.  LCD floor and fiber-optic technology that allows the Olympic rings to literally come off the ground.  Human calligraphy pens.  Artists suspended in mid-air and around a giant globe: walking sideways.  Drummers playing and Tai-Chi experts running with equi-distant precision (2,008 of each to symbolize the Olympic year).  A circular LCD screen that circumvents the length of the stadium.  Giant oars that serve as a panoramic panel-display of ships when held together. Lit-up costumes, stage, and of course fireworks.

Aside from singing monkeys, I don’t know how you can top that. 

They say that next year Great Britain’s hosting.  Great. Perhaps there’ll be a bunch of Benny Hill half-naked chicks in knickers running around with bad teeth whilst reciting a Monty-Python skit.  Sounds like a gas.


About Mema

I've been at this blogging thing since 2005, but I don't consider myself a veteran AT ALL. My posts are mostly well-meaning, fun anecdotes with the occasional random thought and a dash of humor for good measure. So sit back, relax, and stay awhile. And if you decide to browse elsewhere, just're missing out on an opportunity to meet (arguably) THE GREATEST PERSON THAT EVER LIVED. Overstated? Well, why not stick around to find out? Your call, tough guy. Or, gal. Or, martian.
