Hi ho, hi ho – it’s off to London we go for the 2012 Summer Olympics and the Opening Ceremony is a Big Show, let me tell you.   From Pan to Poppins to Potter the Brits are celebrating their literature as well as their philharmonic orchestras and their Shakespeare in the Very Large Park and their National Health Service.   Their National Health Service?   Ok.   Whatever.   As Granny Selma used to say, if you’ve got ’em, flaunt ’em.    Of course, Brits weren’t talking too much about their past Gold Medal winners, but they did play the theme song and ran clips from Chariots of Fire, which is close enough for The Red Man who loves to watch the Peeps running on the beach in that film.   Run white boys, run.

Welcome to London

Her Majesty the Queen

Her Royal Highness Too- Smiley- To- Ever- Be- Queen

Her Royal Highness Not-Too-Smiley-To-Be-Queen-Some-Day

One if by land, two if by sea, right?   Or was that some other Big Deal?

At any rate, give it to the Londoners to figure out a way to spotlight their famous River Thames.   Light a Torch to it!!

Have a Hottie Girl deliver the Torch –

Have Hottie Guys Light It Inside and…

BOOM!!

You Got Yourself An Olympics Going On Up In Here!!

The Red Man salutes all the Peep Athletes (or Pathletes as we will call them in our reports)  from the 204 countries of the planet and wishes them the ability to do their best in whatever sport they play.   Sport is all about the moment of truth and fairness, but we do have our own prejudices at Casa de Canterbury.

Seriously, Dude…what else would you expect from the Americans and their Pups?   We can’t help ourselves.

Get me outta here, Percy…we’ve got some Games On…
