08/08/08: Watch your step…

This has been making the rounds these past few weeks, but with the day finally here, it’s too hysterical not to post.

“We can be sure it is a trap. They’ve been preparing for this for thousands of years. According to the satellite images we are getting from Beijing, they are digging large holes which they claim are for Olympic venues, but we know full well they are going to cover them up with branches and leaves and the athletes from America are going to fall right into them.  Nah, they’re going to wait until it gets dark and then they are going to bring out their dragons…”

Perhaps the funniest/saddest part is the comments section on You Tube where not a few idiot fenqing completely missing the satirical quality of the video–not that irony and satire are common currency in the fenqing mindset–and go right into robotic whining mode about how some vaguely defined “West” hates China.

This just cracks me up every time I watch it…

Anyway, I was just about to give my apologies for anything I may have done to derail the previous thread. Just couldn’t take these fenqing no more.

Just what I needed an hour before watching the China and the world take themselves way too seriously…

The shit youth are the true representatives of the real China.

I’m still convinced that, for the closing ceremony, Beijing is going to rise up, transform into a giant robot and blast off into the heavens, leaving behind a shimmering Olympic Ring-shaped trail. The city will literally sacrifice itself for the Olympics, travelling the cosmos to spread the dream forever. The IOC would cream themselves, and the migrants would be damn happy they were “asked” to leave beforehand.

Ok, back to reality.

Due to unfortunate timing (I live in eastern Canada), I only managed to catch a bit of the opening ceremony as I was getting ready for work this morning. The part I saw was pretty impressive, very powerful.

Of course, the commentary on CBC (Canada’s national broadcaster) was terrible- I had the TV on for 5 seconds at most before I heard “China will be the world’s economic superpower in a very short time”. God. I don’t hate China at all, I just hate the minimum 60% of Western media that can’t seem to cover the country without becoming moronic. I guess that’s why I don’t watch much tv.

Makes me pee a little each time I hear it. Too funny!

@PB: Now THAT would be a closing ceremony worth watching!
