We’d rather show up buck naked!
Blog Guy, I have a question about the Beijing Olympics, which I believe are being held in Peking. How will they control the number of athletes? Is there some qualifying event to make sure millions of them don’t all show up in China?
Are you kidding? That would be WAY too complicated! No, each country just controls the size of their teams by making the athletes wear really goofy-looking costumes to the opening ceremony.
The French guys have silly hats and jackets that say FRANCE on the pockets. Don’t even get me started on what the French chicks are wearing. The Canadians have maple leaf pajamas, and so on.
Believe me, when self-respecting athletes get a load of those designs, there will NOT be a problem with too many of them showing up in Beijing!
