@OmSigDAVID,
Why not? Chilly Willie is a penguin and he does it all the time.

I mean, I guess Willie is a 'he'. I don't know how to tell the difference.

@farmerman,
Thanks. I'll check out our Canada geese and see if that works for them, as well.

@oralloy,
Why would any person with the tiniest speck of self respect wrap themselves in a silly piece of cloth to celebrate their victory?

I thought there was an Olympic rule that forbade political acts by participants.

@roger,
I hope someone writes something. I don't want mr. Giggle pants to be the last word. This is just my version of bump, bumpity, bump.

@Bella Dea,
Not your thread on language wherein you were OTL big time, Bella. That one you deserted like the proverbial bigger than Mickey rodent.

@Bella Dea,
Bella: And your point is?

If you are unsure what my point is perhaps you should refrain from offering advice on language. And before you correct your daughter maybe you get yourself up to speed on what really is language, and how it actually works.

@Bella Dea,
Well, it ran peaceably and even the little glitch at the opening ceremony was used as a basis for a visual "prop" for the closing.
I always get a bit melancholy at the closings of Winter Olympics.

Wait for Olympic Ice fishing in 2018 and the 100 meter snow blow

@farmerman,
The whole notion of an Olympics for countries that are snowy is biased. What about a rainy Olympics? If putting up an umbrella in a force ten gale was an Olympic sport we'd sweep the boards. How about getting from Hammersmith to Cockfosters during a tube strike? If you can do that in less than an hour you deserve a gold medal.

@izzythepush,
Id think that London could retire the "Silly tournaments" division after Id seen some of the timed events that the boys on TOPGEAR would pose themselves in crossing London.

If theyd do that in NYC, theyd need a calendar

What about an Olympics for most countries invaded? Or one for most war criminal/terrorist leaders?

What JTT thinks this says: If you are unsure what my point is perhaps you should refrain from offering advice on language. And before you correct your daughter maybe you get yourself up to speed on what really is language, and how it actually works.

What everyone else hears:
Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. I love hearing myself talk. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.

You ought not to assume that everyone else is as thick as you, Bella.

There is an upside that you have failed to note - you're not doing language commentary anymore. I'm sure your daughter will be overjoyed with that.

@JTT,
I think it's you who's not getting the message. Do you actually read the posts in response to your posts? No, you probably just pick the parts you can protest and go with it.
