What Happened at ‘The Guardian’ Today? Something About Olympic Rings and a Famous Bridge
Yes… we’re now officially really close to a Summer Olympics, which in Canada is celebrated by pretending to be American or Australian and then hiding our head in an ostrich-like fashion because, hey, we suck at summer sports.
Canadians generally pick one or two to focus on, and then we just act like we couldn’t care about the rest. And then, we go nuts when one of our athletes shocks everyone and wins a Gold he or she wasn’t supposed to win.
Today, at the world’s finest newspaper – The Guardian – Englanders (?) were treated to a boat-side unveiling of the Olympic rings, which have been placed on London’s Tower Bridge. It’s kind of famous.
(Is it always that grey in London? Jesus…)
This is also the event that every Vancouverite has been waiting for… sweet, sweet revenge has been planned for two years, ever since a few yellow columnists with bad teeth (we’re assuming, since it’s in England) slammed Canada’s last Olympics in February, 2010. Oh yeah, he and they were from The Guardian, too.
Of course, nobody from Canada will really lash out at them. That’s not our style. Secretly, we just appreciated knowing that England knows we’re a real country. And, besides, their brand of self-hating, I-loathe-myself humo(u)r was passed onto us a long time.
We still have to hono(u)r that old bird, too, anyway.
