Britain’s Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt called the development “very disappointing” and said he believes the empty seats were set aside for so-called Olympic family members, which includes corporate sponsors.
The Supreme Court Still Thinks Corporations Are People
“Mitt Romney tells us, in his own words, he believes corporations are people. No, Mitt, corporations are NOT people,” she pronounced. “People have hearts. They have kids. They get jobs. They get sick. They love and they cry and they dance. They live and they die. Learn the difference.”
This is so confusing!!!!

Curtis and Leroy and their wives decided to go shopping at the Westfield Stratford City mall while they were in London for the 2012 Summer Olympics.
They decided that they would go their own ways and meet at a central location at 3 pm. At 3 pm Leroy, Leroy’s wife and Curtis showed up. After waiting for quite some time, Curtis said he would look around while the other two stayed put.
He was running through the crowd of shoppers when he collided with a young guy.
Curtis said to the young guy, “Sorry about that. I’m looking for my wife, and I guess I wasn’t paying attention to where I was going.”
The young guy says, “That’s OK. It’s a coincidence. I’m looking for my wife, too. I can’t find her and I’m getting a little desperate.”
Curtis said, “Well, maybe we can help each other. What does your wife look like?”
The young guy says, “Well, her name is Brianna, she is 24 years old, tall, with long reddish brown hair, dark brown eyes, long legs, big boobs, and she’s wearing a dress with the British Flag on it. The dress says,”I love London.”. What does your wife look like?”
Curtis said, “Never mind, let’s look for your wife.”

The Childrens’ Food Campaign (CFC) is upset about the choice for sponsors for the 2012 London Olympic Games.
CFC co-ordinator Malcolm Clark said: “The Olympics have become a celebration of ‘big’. For the junk food companies who sponsor the Games, that means big restaurants, big audiences, big brand value, big profits. But for children that could also mean bigger waistlines and bigger health problems later in life.”
Health campaigners are urging the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to ban junk food and fizzy drink brands from future sporting sponsorship deals in a critical new report which says the committee has squandered the chance to create a positive health legacy from the London 2012 Games.
The major sponsors
Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, and Cadbury
are given an incredible platform to promote their unhealthy brands and products around the world.
The CFC is calling for the IOC to help tackle rising obesity levels by setting conditions on promoting healthy eating in their sponsorship deals and for junk food brands to be excluded.
The findings will trigger fresh criticism of the stranglehold on food and drink at the Games held by sponsors Cadbury, McDonald’s (its largest restaurant in the world is in the Olympic Park) and Coca-Cola, which is expected to serve 23m soft drinks at the Games due to its near-monopoly at Olympic venues.

I must admit that I love watching the Olympics. At the same time, I can’t remember the name of an athlete that won gold medals in the 2008 Olympics for my country.
Why are we so fascinated by the summer games?
Jim McKay captured the concept perfectly with his opening words on ABC’s Wide World of Sports (quite a long time ago -1961?)
when he referred to “the human drama of athletic competition” and the “thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.”
I like the drama and the stories about the incredible hard work and dedication that many of the athletes demonstrate. The mostly unknown athletes have given up much of their lives to get there.
I enjoy watching Roger Federer in tennis or LeBron James in basketball but I’m not sure if pros should be allowed to compete. I get to see them compete throughout the year. It’s their “job”.
I’m also interested to read about the incredible security and all the doping scandals.
Two days before the London Games’ official opening ceremony, the athletics’ ruling body saying it had suspended nine track and field competitors for what it called “sophisticated doping.”
The Olympics is mostly about the
best in us
and that’s why I love them.
#6. You can still make money doing it as a senior.
#5. Three times a day IS possible.
#4. Your partner doesn’t hire a lawyer if you play with someone else.
#3. If you live in Florida, you can do it almost everyday.
#2. You don’t have to cuddle with your partner when you’re finished.
And the number one reason why golf is better than sex…
#1. If your equipment gets old and rusty, you can replace it!

McDonald’s is an official sponsor of the 2012 London Olympics
Home Secretary admits illegal chips may infiltrate Olympics
Home Secretary Theresa May today admitted that she had grave doubts about G4S’s ability to keep non-McDonald’s potato products from entering the Olympic Park during the Games.
‘It’s a nightmare scenario really,’ said May. ‘We’re potentially looking at multiple chip-related security breaches. We’ve already intercepted one man of Middle-Eastern appearance trying to smuggle in a one-kilo bag of McCain Low Fat Oven Fries, so who knows what else is out there.’
Experts say that if it had not been detected, the one-kilo bag could potentially have provided a family of six with a very generous portion of reasonably priced chips each. ‘The thought of it sends a shiver up my spine,’ said an unnamed McDonald’s executive.
G4S officials say they are frantically re-training their seven remaining guards on how to spot chips on the X-ray machines at stadium entrances, and have told them to pay particular attention to any children carrying hot-dogs or other chip-related ‘red flag’ foodstuffs.
In a further illustration of the threat posed by illegal chips, anti-terror police today raided a family home in Islington – just 5 miles from the Olympic Park – and discovered what they described as ‘a chip-making factory’.
‘We found deep-fryers, a freezer full of easy-cook frozen chips and packets of hash browns,’ said a police spokesman. ‘We also seized several bags of potatoes – the essential raw ingredient needed for the assembly of illegal chips. We have a slightly overweight family of five in custody for further questioning.’ Police suspect they may be linked to one of the big Irish potato cartels or could even be traced right back to South American growers.’
‘It’s a big discovery – we estimate 7-8 kilos of pure spud with a street value of up to £4.50.’
London Olympic Trivia:
MCDONALD’S - The Olympic Park will house the world’s largest McDonald’s, seating 1,500 people and serving up around 50,000 Big Macs during the 17-day event.
Controversial Olympic sponsors Coca-Cola and McDonalds have posted disappointing trading figures; despite the huge global audience of the games, not all of this attention is positive.

Where is Canada, eh?
I predict 20 medals for Canada at the London Olympics!
Q: Why were the Canadian athletes at the London Olympics upset?
A: Because everyone kept thinking they were from the US, eh?
An Englishman, a Scot and an Irishman
An Englishman, a Scot and an Irishman were without tickets for the opening ceremonies of the summer Olympics but hoped to be able to talk their way in at the gate. Security was very tight, however, and each of their attempts was met with a stern refusal.
While wandering around outside the stadium, the Englishman came upon construction site, which gave him an idea. Grabbing a length of scaffolding, he presented himself at the gate and said, “Johnson, the pole vault,” and was admitted.
The Scotsman, overhearing this, went at once to search the site. When he came up with a sledge hammer, he presented himself at the gate and said, “McTavish, the hammer.” He was also admitted.
The Irishman combed the site for an hour and was nearly ready to give up when he spotted his ticket in. Seizing a roll of barbed wire, he presented himself at the gate and announced, “O’Sullivan, fencing.”
Jerri Peterson, 54, from Atlanta, carried the torch in England on June 30 after the hotel chain she worked for nominated her for the honor in recognition of her extensive charity work.
Right before she left for England to carry the torch, Peterson went for the tattoo she’d always wanted.
Too bad her tattoo artist came without spell check. Peterson’s finished tattoo read: “Oylmpic Torch Bearer.” But Peterson hasn’t let the spelling flub stifle her spirit and good humor
Once she arrived in the U.K., many of Peterson’s fellow torchbearers were more than happy to buy her beers and congratulate her as an “Oylmpic” torchbearer.
”All I had to do was mention the tattoo, and I had plenty of free pints to drink. It’s the Oylmpics!”
