OLYMPICS UPDATE

Well, it's actually an outdated update. But it's for the guys. (The warning is for women, for once.)

First!

oh, shuttlecock...

I opened it at work *and* my mom thought I was gay.

HELLOOOOooo Punky!!!

G'day, Mate-tesses! 'ow're thing down under? Can I come down under?

Now that is one nice set of "matildas"!

I know this is a comedy blog, and I'm not supposed to post anything serious, BUT...

It's kind of cool to see athletic women portrayed as sex symbols. I hear WAY too many men friends making fun of women who play sports, as if they were all ugly AND gay.

Now, all you men can go back to oogling.

elle - not in my mind, they're not..

*rummages for credit card to put in his order*

melody, did you see the swimmer on letterman last night? she was wearing a minimini and a spaghetti-strap top, and looked absolutely fabulous. can't remember her first name, but the last name is coughlin. nobody'd say anything about HER ;)

natalie coughlin.

I'd like to tipiyokti Natalie's Coughlin!

(just to prove Judi wrong)

christobol, that's what *I* was referring to.

Thanks, Judi! You're a mate!

judi,

I didn't see Natalie Coughlin, but swimmers, gymnists, and ice skaters don't really count in my list of "manly" sports. Swimming doesn't seem to convert the female body into an exact replica of the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

I have to admit that some of the female runners HAVE to be men. (yick) But those soccer women seem to have the best of both worlds, they can kick ass and they're beautiful.

Sweetheart, your not HEARING your men friends. What they're saying is:

1) The Ugly ones are straight.
2) The pretty ones are gay.
3) If there are some ugly gay ones, it's ok.
4) Whether or not the pretty are gay, we'd like to tipiyokti their coughlins.

I hope this helps you forge that special friendship you've been craving with these guys.

Lee, thanks! Now THAT's what I call a public service!

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL!

Crikey - stone the crows! What a spiffing bunch of sheilas! I could crack a fat for them even if was as shickered as a shithouse rat.
