2012. east end olympics?
As you know, London (Stratford) will be hosting the Olympic Games in
What you may not know, is that many of the famous events which go to
make up this spectacular event, are to be especially altered for 2012.
A copy of these changes has been leaked, and is reproduced below.
The flame will be ignited by a petrol bomb thrown by a native of the
area, in the traditional dress of balaclava and shell suit. The flame will be
contained in a large overturned police van situated on the roof of the
In previous Olympic Games, East London's competitors have not been
particularly successful. In order to redress the balance, some of the
have been altered slightly to the advantage of local athletes.
100 METRES SPRINT
Competitors will have to hold a video recorder and microwave oven (one
in each arm) and on the sound of the starting pistol, a police dog will be
released from a cage 10 yards behind the athletes.
110 METRES HURDLES
As above but with added obstacles (i.e. car bonnets, hedges, garden
fences, walls etc)
Competitors in this event may choose the type of hammer they wish to
use (claw, sledge etc) the winner will be the one who can cause the most
physical damage within three attempts.
Entrants will be asked to dispose of as many stolen goods as possible
in 5 minutes.
A strong challenge is expected from local men in this event. The first
target will be a moving police van. In the second round, competitors
will aim at a post office clerk bank teller or securicor style wages delivery
man. The traditional ..22 rifle has been replaced in this event by a choice of
either a Browning automatic handgun or Sawn-off 12-bore shotgun.
Entry to the boxing will be restricted to husband and wife teams, and
will take place on a Friday night. The husband will be given 15 pints of
lager while the wife will be told not to make him any tea when he gets home.
The bout will then commence.
CYCLING TIME TRIALS
Competitors will be asked to break into the University bike shed and
take an expensive mountain bike owned by some mummy's boy on his first trip away
from home. All against the clock.
As above, but the bike will be owned by a visiting member of the
Australian rugby team, who will witness the theft.
Amended to include mugging, breaking and entering, flashing, joyriding
All waterways are currently being tested for toxicity levels, once one
is found that can support human life, swimming events will be organised,
please note that the Synchronised Swimming even for this year will comprise of
dropping acid and watching all the funky ripples on the pool, the
musical support to this event will be provided by "The Verve".
A safe route has yet to be decided.
MEN'S 50km WALK
Unfortunately this will have to be cancelled as the police cannot
guarantee the safety of anyone walking the streets of East London, especially
anyone that appears to be mincing ...
THE CLOSING CEREMONY
Entertainment will include formation rave dancing by members of the
Stratford Health in the Community anti-drug campaigners, synchronised
rock throwing, and music by the Ilford community choir. The flame will be
extinguished by police riot water cannon following inevitable pitch
invasion by a confused West Ham organised hooliganism club. The stadium itself
will then be boarded up before the local athletes break into it and remove
all the copper piping and the central heating boiler.
Apparently Liverpool were set to put in a bid very similar to the
above but with the Pentathlon modified to include: Killing a spouse, digging a
hole, burying the body, laying a patio and the strangely named 'Calm Down'
To guarantee the entry of any Mancunian athletes at all, Drugs testing
has been waived this year.

Excellent choice of events!!
I couldn't give a toss about the Olympics OR the Football World cup , BUT I would definitely watch your version. Especially the Scousers greeting the opposition with a 'Kirkby Kiss'. Hopefully there will be a Scottish contingent -led by Rab C Nesbit?
You forgot International TWOCing whereby contestants try to take other competitors cars & ring them
- Anonymous1 decade ago
At least it will be more representative of modern times than that nancy Greek stuff (I've even been told that the men actually kiss and dance with each other while the women sit it out on the side lines!)
