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.
