Friday Humor: Olympics Edition

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Sometimes, some things are best left unsaid:

  • Weightlifting commentator: "This is Gregoriava from Bulgaria. I saw her snatch this morning during her warm up and it was amazing."
  • Dressage commentator: "This is really a lovely horse and I speak from personal experience since I once mounted her mother."
  • Boxing Analyst: "Sure there have been injuries, and even some deaths in boxing, but none of them really that serious."
  • Softball announcer: "If history repeats itself, I should think we can expect the same thing again."
  • Basketball analyst: "He dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn't like it. In fact you can see it all over their faces."
  • At the rowing medal ceremony: "Ah, isn't that nice, the wife of the IOC president is hugging the cox of the British crew."
  • Soccer commentator: "Julian Dicks is everywhere. It's like they've got eleven Dicks on the field."
  • Tennis commentator: "One of the reasons Andy is playing so well is that, before the final round, his wife takes out his balls and kisses them . . . Oh my God, what have I just said?"

And finally, Obama calls Phelps:

"Congratulations Michael, but remember you didn't win all those medals, someone else did. After all, you swam in public pools, built by state employees using tax dollars. You got training from the USOC, and ate food grown by the Department of Agriculture. You should play fair and share your medals with the people who can barely keep their head above water, let alone swim."

  • Women's Judo commentator: "Pogorzelec in the white, a limping Joo in the blue."

As an aside, Joo's throw was probably the most spectacular in the entire Olympics 2012: http://cdn3.sbnation.com/fan_shot_images/262630/1.gif

Study: Oral Sex Cures Morning Sickness

...

According to Gordon Gallup, a psychologist at SUNY-Albany, the best way to cure morning sickness during pregnancy is sperm.

But not just any sperm, it should be the sperm of the person who got you pregnant.

Gallup believes the reason a pregnant woman gets morning sickness is due to the unfamiliar semen in their body due to the pregnancy.

Gallup says in his findings that the woman’s body will initially reject the father’s semen as an infection and react to it by vomiting.

Gallup says the best cure for morning sickness is to ingest the father’s semen so her body can build up a tolerance to what’s already in her body.

Gallup agrees with the 2000 abstract from the National Center for Biotechnology Information, which showed that oral sex and swallowing sperm is correlated with a diminished occurrence of preeclampsia.

PubMed Health defines preeclampsia as when a pregnant woman develops high blood pressure and protein in the urine after the 20th week, which is usually in the late second or third trimester of pregnancy.

"You Olympians, however, know you didn't get here solely on your own power,” said Romney, who on Friday will attend the Opening Ceremonies of this year’s Summer Olympics. “For most of you, loving parents, sisters or brothers, encouraged your hopes, coaches guided, communities built venues in order to organize competitions. All Olympians stand on the shoulders of those who lifted them. We’ve already cheered the Olympians, let’s also cheer the parents, coaches, and communities. All right! [pumps fist]."

Actually, I think people on the left are in fact more stupid; to wit: They seem to support things that are just plain obviously on the face of them bad ideas (i.e., let's bring all the Haitians with AIDS here and take care of them) and also support bad ideas that are just as obviously against their own self-interests (i.e., famously asked of a Marin mother: "Would you be okay if a less qualified minority took your child's place at university?" [In case you don't know, she answered yes.]) People on the right also support some spectacularly bad ideas, too, but usually they have to be (or appear to be) in their own best interests. Lacking the instinct for self-preservation is sort of the quintessentially defining characteristic of the unredeemably stupid lampooned on, e.g., YouTube ("Here, hold my beer" ... .)

I'm starting to think not...there is a rumbling I've never seen before.

The generational poor want to know why they are always kept poor. The connected are second guessing their real purpose, status & ultimate destination in life. The middle asks, in even more strident tones, why it is that they have to bear either of the two on their backs.

Its a beautiful thing, just as it should be.

OK.

I'll try to be hopefull again.

All that it would take for me to get really positive is the utterance of "fiscal responsibility" from some leaders in congress.

Take care.

Fiscal responsibility and taking a meat cleaver to some of the crap they've imposed on us for the last century.

I still say every new law proposed must come with a list of ten existing laws that must be repealed in order for the new one to even be considered.

Oh Jimmy, Shame on you.

Didn't your mother ever teach you to just smile and nod reassuringly when handicapped people fly into histrionics?

Intervention is only called for if they start to hurt themselves or others.

Derision only augments their confusion.

Please try harder to be a good example.

It's odd to me that everybody who disagrees with liberals happens to be stupid. It's almost as though they believe themselves to be superior, and should therefore tell everybody else how to live their lives.

The ultimate triumph of liberal thought - the hate crime. They have made a thought crime, without any awareness of how funny that is.

Yes, live and let live. Along those lines, the folks you call 'righty'probably wish that thought applied to the fruits of their labor (but it isn't THEIR labor is it?). But i'm just arguing a moot point for them...

Ultimately i think most folks here at the ZH don't see it as right v left ...more like US vs THEM. And the "THEM" camp sure likes for "US" to fight about whether its a 'right or left' thing {think divide and conquer}. Allow me to recommend the Red pill...

“We are born into this time and must bravely follow the path to the destined end. There is no other way. Our duty is to hold on to the lost position, without hope, without rescue, like that Roman soldier whose bones were found in front of a door in Pompeii, who, during the eruption of Vesuvius, died at his post because they forgot to relieve him. That is greatness. That is what it means to be a thoroughbred. The honorable end is the one thing that can not be taken from a man.”

What's odd to me is "progessives" had two years to turn everything around...had the senate, the house and the presidency.

They were so fucking "smart" they passed "shovel ready jobs" debt bombs and the largest tax increase on the middle class we've ever had, subsidized moonshiners (ethanol), went into competition with slave labor (Solyndra) and broke out their really BIG pom poms for Dodd-Frank.

Think about that, Chris Dodd?...Bwaney Fwank?

Really?

c-daddy...conservatives aren't trying to force anything on anyone...conservatives resist change and cling to tradition, it's what defnes conservatives.  Progressives are all about change...whether I agree with one side or the other is irrelevant but let me give you some examples:  Conservatives want the definition of marriage to stay as it has always been, liberals want to change it to include same sex union...conservatives want the federal govenrment to go back to where it started and that is being much smaller with states haveing greater say in their destiny, liberals want to continue to grow (change) the government...conservatives want taxes to stay the same, not raise (change) them...consrvatives want the right to continue to practice their religous beliefs the way they have always practiced them, liberals want to reduce (change) those rghts...I would really enjoy if if you would point out examples of how and where conservatives are trying to force religion and dogma on others. Thanks.

throughout history liberals are people trying to free themselves from centalized opression from conservaitve religious right types. Centralized governments are conservative as they want to keep the status quo. Liberals push to evolve soceiey. You either want things to stay the same(conserve) or change(liberate)

Historicaly conservatives have been the ones telling people how to lives thier lives thru the church

It's all bad. Now if we want to discuss "classical liberalism," then many of the people here would fit into that category. Trolly above wants to use "liberalism" to mean that Uncle Sugar ought to take care of everything no matter how worthless your lazy ass is. This is not classical liberalism. It's "you didn't build that."

I am a libertarian and a classical liberal. Have at my ass, because I also believe in free speech, even for fucktards who have nothing better to do but write 100 messages on a Friday evening. (I have no life, too, but I'm with my kids watching "Born Free." I know...ironic.)

The power elite decide that. Stop putting blame of all the ills of the country on the libs.

Thats like me saying that all conservatives are lazy eyed bible thumpers who give your that fearful chimpanzee glare when you talk about technology and start beating on their bible hard and fast yelling woooh weooh wohh! Must stay same. No change! No change!
