Like all red-blooded Americans, I loves me some Olympics. I will have a hard time getting work done over the next couple weeks with six stations of Olympics (+ streaming). And the fact that my TV information calls it the “XXX Summer Olympics” makes it even better (in a 14-year old funny sort of way). Speaking of TV, NBC quickly admits it is horrible and offers a solution.

*political cartoons (do you see any themes?)
See below for London!
Can anyone explain this cartoon?

The All-Drug Olympics
And, of course, the Queen:
Mr. Bean at the Olympics
BBC America’s New Olympics Comedy
