The Freddy Mercury Karaoke Contest
I don’t have cable.
I do have rabbit ear antennae that pick up CCTV from a nearby parking garage when the wind’s blowin’ up a gale. Needless to say, I can’t watch the Olympics at home. What I can do (and did) is make funny happenstance with the history of Olympic Pictograms.
The following are all real depictions of particular sporting events (from the denoted year/city), some of which I have no clue what they’re representing. So, I do what I did in college; make shit up.
The Hilarious Sport of ‘Falling on Pavement’. A slight alteration –
– turns to ‘Singing in the Rain’
The riveting sport of ‘Kneeling…Staring’
My personal favorite, “Foreplay!”
The Sport of “I’m not Angry with you, just disappointed”
The Best Portrayal of Luke hanging from the antenna at the end of ‘Empire Strikes Back’
Synchronized swimming (I actually got this one)
A little rotation and….
Synchronized Pole Dancing!
Okay, another swimming one – a little rotation…
…and, we get a creeper with a fake arm – or John Wilkes Boothe.
1984 Los Angeles
Chick-fil-a Sponsored Event
In the near future, Chess will be an olympic sporting event. Until then, it’s a game of ‘I’m seeing someone else”.
